Some astronomy experts found phenomena that look like planet suicide action because the planet position is very close withy itself star and make great wave. That planet is WASP-18b already existed for million years and found by Coel Hellier, a professor of astrophysical at Keele University in England. Hellier explains his report on scientist journal The Nature on Thursday (August 27, 2009). “By make that wave, the planet destroyed itself,” says Heller. The star of planet is WASP-18 (without “b”). This planet orbited the star by Phoenix constellation and have distance about 325 light years from earth (one year light us about 9.3 billion kilometers). That means it in neighbor area of our milky way. Distance between the planet and it star is about 1/50 earth and Sun distance. Planet size is about 10 times bigger than Jupiter size. Wave between that planet and it star can be analogy with moon and earth that can make twice waves. So far astronomy experts have found more than 370 planets outside our solar system. Planet suicide is rare to found.
