Scientists have discovered stars unexpectedly blasting out radio waves, possibly indicating the existence of hidden planets. The University of Queensland's Dr Benjamin Pope and colleagues at the Dutch national observatory ASTRON have been searching for planets using the world's most powerful radio telescope Low-Frequency Array (LOFAR) situated in the Netherlands. The study was published in Nature Astronomy.
