A Jupiter – like Planet Orbiting the Nearby M Dwarf GJ 832 1


Precision Doppler velocity measurements from the Anglo-Australian Telescope reveal a planet with a 9.4±0.4 year period orbiting the M1.5 dwarf GJ 832. Within measurement uncertainty the orbit is circular, and the minimum mass (m sin i) of the planet is 0.64±0.06MJUP. GJ 832 appears to be depleted in metals by at least 50% relative to the Sun, as are a… (More)
