Scientists found ‘Super Earth’ planet, there will be life like Earth!
Scientists are engaged day and night in search of life on any planet other than Earth. But till now no such planet has been found, where life like earth is possible. However, scientists have discovered a super earth planet which is oldest stars of our Galaxy.
Heat and rocks are also present in this planet. The planet has been named Super Earth by scientists. Its size is 50 percent larger than Earth.
Many elements found on the planet
This new research was presented in the meeting of the American Astronomical Society on Monday. This planet named TOI-561b takes only half a day to complete one round of its star. Because of its short distance from its star, its surface temperature is 2000 K.
This super Earth planet was discovered by the mission of the US space agency NASA. Where this planet has been found, elements like iron and magnesium are found and the presence of planets is not generally expected here. Researchers have found the mass, density and radius of the planet with the help of Hawaii’s WM Cake Observatory.
Chance of life on this planet
Despite its mass, its density was equal to that of the Earth, which surprised the Astronomers. This has indicated that this planet is quite old. From the inside information of this planet, it can be known whether life is possible here or not. Even though it looks rocky like the earth, its temperature is also hot but it will be interesting to know if there would have ever been life here or not.
According to the study’s lead author, Lauren Weiss, the planet is the oldest of the rocky planets ever discovered. It is believed that our Milky Way Galaxy was formed 12 billion years ago. This star and its planets were formed 10 billion years ago. Our sun is 4.5 billion years old.
