Recent research published in the Astrophysical Journal Letters shows that temperatures in Hell Planet turned out to be much more extreme than previously thought.
Previously, the astronomer is believed to have known extreme heat temperatures until the rain of hot molten iron is believed to be a daily condition on exoplanets or Hell Planets located in the exoplanet about 640 light years from Earth.
However, it was known from the discovery of large amounts of calcium in the air by scientists led by a team from Cornell University investigating WASP-76b’s atmosphere.
Reported futurismThe discovery of calcium is part of a years-long survey of exoplanets using the Gemini North observatory in Hawaii. According to the researchers, the results will lead to catalogs of exoplanets that reveal more details about their atmospheres than was possible in the past.
“We are remotely sensing dozens of exoplanets, spanning a range of masses and temperatures. We will develop a more complete picture of the diversity of alien worlds, from those hot enough to accommodate iron rain to others with more moderate climates, from those that are more intense. from Jupiter to those not much larger than Earth,” said Cornel Ray Jayawardhana, one of the study’s authors and astronomer.
In a recent study WASP-76b related to increasing the intensity of daily rainstorms of molten iron, it shows that exoplanets will not become habitation places. But as the team continues to survey more and more worlds, they may find a more hospitable location or planet to become Earth 2.0.
Previously, in the results of a study published on November 3, 2020, an international team of researchers described a planet whose location was unlike the one in our solar system. The Earth-sized exoplanet called K2-141b is a world of hot lava on one side, but extremely cold on the other.
It has a magma ocean, rock vapor atmosphere, and supersonic winds. K2-141b is a planet that orbits close to its star and of course tends to be much hotter than Mercury and Venus, which are farther from the sun in the solar system.
On November 3, scientists at McGill University, York University and the Indian Institute of Science Education announced that one planet being studied was a world that was scorching hot on one side and freezing on the other.
Tue Giang Nguyen of York University is the lead author of the study, published November 3, 2020, in the peer-reviewed journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
“This study is the first to make predictions about weather conditions on K2-141b that can be detected from hundreds of light years away with next-generation telescopes such as the James Webb Space Telescope,” Nguyen said in a statement. earthsky.com.
