Exoplanetary Scratchpad

[SysBP Img]

Star with a tilted planet. This planet's tilt is cannot be explained by nearby stars or exoplanets knocking it out of its original orbit. Its existance challenges the tidal theory that suggested that small stars' large atmospheres can grab onto nearby planets and cause the orbit to flatten out relative to its star's rotation. This planet was found near a small star, and should have flattened out by now, but it has not. It orbits 76deg from the plane of its star.
