At present, scientists have not confirmed the density of the planet’s atmosphere. If the planet has a dense atmosphere, it is very likely to capture enough heat on the surface like the earth. The planet can retain liquid water.
NASA recently announced that their exoplanet probe, Tess, found a planet that may be suitable for human habitation about 31 light-years from Earth and named it “Super Earth.”
“Super Earth” receives stellar energy similar to the amount of solar energy received by Mars
The NASA out- of-plane planetary detector Tess discovered three planets 31 light years away. They orbit around a star named GJ357. The most interesting of the three planets is the “super earth” that scientists have named GJ357d. Its mass is at least 6.1 times that of the Earth. The planet runs around a star that is much smaller than the Sun. It revolves around the parent star every 55.7 days .
Because it is located on the outer edge of the galaxy’s livable zone, the received star energy is about the same as the amount of solar energy received by Mars.
At present, scientists have not confirmed the density of the planet’s atmosphere. If the planet has a dense atmosphere, it is very likely to capture enough heat on the surface like the earth, and it can retain liquid water. ” The planet has a livable condition similar to the earth.
If the density of the atmosphere is not enough, then the planet’s surface temperature is too low to support life.
“Tess” detector: searching for “new world” outside the solar system
NASA launched a new exoplanet probe, Tess, in April last year, with the main goal of “joining” the Kepler Space Telescope and continuing to search for “new worlds” outside the solar system.
The US space industry generally believes that NASA has discovered that “Super Earth” has added new progress to human exploration of advanced life outside the solar system.
Netizens have heatedly discussed this newly discovered “Super Earth”.
Many netizens have begun to “plan” space immigration. Some people think that they will revolve for 55.7 days, which may be “a little dizzy”.
“Super Earth” may be suitable for living. Would you like to pay it a visit?
