Scientists claim that they have found a Saturn-like planet closely orbiting a small, cool star, 35 light-years from Earth using VLBA

The planet which has been detected is known as TVLM 513b. This particular planet has a similar mass to Saturn and an orbit analogous that is pretty similar to Mercury.

According to SpaceRef, This is the first time that this technique is successfully employed with observations obtained at radio wavelengths. For their observations, the researchers used a network of radio antennas that are linked together to form a continent-size radio telescope.

The technique involves tracking the star’s actual motion in space, then detecting a minuscule “wobble” in that motion caused by the gravitational effect of the planet.
