Amateur astronomers discovers four new planets with his PC

Posted on Saturday, January 08 2011 @ 17:25:45 CET by


Daily Mail reports a 45-year old amateur astronomer discovered four previously unknown planets using just two home computers:
The gas worker from Rotherham, South Yorkshire, has been officially named by the University of California's Lick-Carnegie Planet Search Team as the co-discoverer of planets HD31253b, HD218566b, HD177830c and HD99492c. His findings have now been published in Astrophysical Journal.

An overwhelmed Mr Jalowiczor said: 'I've always been interested in astronomy and I have two science degrees but to be one of the officially recognised finders of these planets is just... I get lost for words.'

Using just two home computers, he spent night after night analysing thousands of space measurements released by astronomers at the Santa Cruz-based university in 2005.
