Caption

Extrasolar planet atmosphere blowoff. Computer artwork showing an extended ellipsoidal envelope of oxygen and carbon discovered around the well-known extrasolar planet HD 209458b (centre). This is the first sign of oxygen and carbon observed in the atmosphere of a planet beyond our Solar System and was imaged for the first time using the Hubble Space Telescope. HD 209458b, unofficially known as Osiris, orbits the Solar analog star HD 209458 (right), around 150 light-years from Earth in the constellation Pegasus.
