The RAS told about a relevant task in studying of space
Now the set of exoplanets is opened, and more relevant task for scientists is their studying, but not search new, the director of institute of astronomy of RAS (INASAN) Dmitry Bisikalo said in an interview to RIA Novosti.

In December, 2013 was started the space telescope of the European Space Agency of Gaia, and in April, 2018 - the telescope of NASA the TESS intended for opening of exoplanets, that is planets out of Solar system.

"Opened the first exoplanet around a radio pulsar in 1992, and the first exoplanet around a star of the main sequence (a star of solar type) - in 1995. Since then about 4 thousand planets, and in the nearest future, after publication of results of already working space missions of Gaia and TESS are discovered, opening of tens of thousands of planets is expected. All this led to accent shift from opening of exoplanets to their studying", - Bisikalo told.

according to him, institute of astronomy of RAS ranks high enough in this process - it conducts researches of the atmospheres of exoplanets, protoplanetary disks (the arising planetary systems), loudspeakers of bodies in planetary systems. The group of scientists of 15-20 people which both graduate students and students enter is engaged in this work, Bisikalo added.

"Results of our work are rather widely known - in particular, in the last edition of the Oxford encyclopedic dictionary article about the atmospheres of hot floodlights (exoplanets - gas giants - the edition) was prepared by the staff of our institute", - he noted.
