LONDON – Our solar system appears to be an immigrant to have. It is a rock from outside our system came and here is stuck. It is the first time that such an asteroid is found.
Not the asteroid out of the story.
The asteroid has the scientific name (514107) 2015 BZ509. He revolves in an orbit around the planet Jupiter. The rock was in 2014 discovered, but now his origin is determined. The scientists still do not know exactly when and how (514107) 2015 BZ509 is included in our solar system.
The rock is obstinate. All the planets rotate in the same direction around the sun, and the moons and most of the boulders do that also. They follow the direction of the gas cloud from which they are 4.5 billion years ago. But (514107) 2015 BZ509 goes the other way. That indicates that he is from somewhere else.
It is not the first time that an object was found outside our solar system. Last year was such a rock seen, ‘Oumuamua called, but that was ‘in transit’ and will be in a while and fly away.
