INDIA : scientists discover a planet where one year lasts only 19.5 days
The newly discovered star orbits a star similar to the Sun, about 600 light years away from Earth.
Awesome revelation : According to the Astronomical Journal, a bunch of scientists from the Physical Research Laboratory (PRL) of the Indian city of Ahmedabad has found an exoplanet with a mass approximately 27 times greater than Earth !!!
This planet orbits a star similar to the Sun, about 600 light years away from Earth. It is estimated that the recently discovered star is more than seven times closer to its star than Earth, which means that a year lasts approximately 19.5 days there. The planet will be known as EPIC 211945201b or K2-236b.
In addition, researchers have found that the temperature on the surface of the planet is around 600 degrees Celsius, since it is very close to the host star. In this way, the EPIC 211945201b should be, according to Indian scientists, uninhabitable until proven otherwise. Research is till on…
With this epic discovery, India has joined a select group of countries that have discovered new planets. The findings of this research will help the international scientists community to understand to a deeper depth, the mechanism of formation of planets of the super-Neptune or sub-Saturn type, which are very close to the host star.
