A group of researchers from the Institute of Space Sciences (IEEC-CSIC) at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona has discovered, for the first time, a delta Scuti pulsating star that hosts a hot giant transiting planet.


Artist's Impression:

This is a great discovery!we are finding new things out in the cosmos just about everyday now,Just imagine what they are not sharing!

I found this part very intriguing & important :

Therefore, the WASP-33 system represents a landmark in the world of exoplanets since it may provide vital information on pulsations modes that occur in stars, the effects of tides between stars and planets and the dynamical evolution of planetary systems.

No problem.There is probably so many undiscovered,unimagined wonders out there and within "this" universe! (Multiverse) Parallel universes and cannot leave out different dimensions!

This is a great discovery! it unfortunately is being overlooked,it holds great significance in helping us learn more about how planets interact with stars (tide,gravity,magnetosphere) this research is absolutely momentous and paramount in our understanding of solar systems and the universe at large
