Caption: A team of researchers has devised a way to measure the internal properties of stars -- a method that offers more accurate assessments of their orbiting planets. The researchers examined HD 52265 and a single planet in the star's orbit. This is an artistic rendering of HD 52265 and its orbiting Jupiter-like planet.
