Scientists develop methods to estimate Magnetic Fields of Exoplanets

Researchers from Lomonosov Moscow State University in Russia have developed methods to calculate magnetic field of exoplanets at a distance.

It nearly took two decades for the researchers to study the fields of an exoplanet, outside our solar system, orbiting a foreign star. Finally, they have managed to estimate the magnetic moment of the planet HD 209458b, which will help them to better estimate whether they are suitable to sustain lif...
