For the first time ever, scientists say they've discovered planets beyond our own Milky Way galaxy.

Located in a galaxy some 3.8 billion light-years away, the extragalactic planets are too far away to be observed directly even with the biggest telescopes now in existence.

But astrophysicists at the University of Oklahoma say they were found using data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory space telescope and with the help of gravitational microlensing. That’s a phenomenon predicted by Einstein’s general theory of relativity in which the gravitational field around celestial objects can focus light just like a lens so that distant objects can be observed at high magnification.

Or maybe they're looking at a light several thousand miles away.

Oh wow, you look pissed you got found out.

>ITT: /news+/ suddenly knows more than astrophysicist after reading an article about a discovery

I bet you faggots don't even know how to use their telescope much less the calculations behind it.

< extragalactic planets are too far away to be observed directly even with the biggest telescopes

Are you going to pretend you are talking about an unrelated telescope or are you just illiterate?
