Planet x news
Various space agencies, including NASA, are trying to find life on another planet outside our solar system. Of course, we have not yet found any life outside the world. But we often find that there is a planet in the Habitable Zone for life or living in the future. NASA has recently discovered a similar planet. An advanced telescope called TESS has been discovered. That was launched in April 2018, in search of Alien Planet. In today’s episode we will know about a planet that will surprise you.
Transiting Exoplanet Survey
Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite. This space satellite is more powerful than Kepler. Accompanying this TESS mission was the tireless work and dreams of scientists. The main purpose of this telescope was to find all the planets that were orbiting in the star’s Habitable Zone, outside our solar system. TESS began looking toward hydra constellation in 2019. That is 30 light years away from our Earth. During this quest TESS, she looks for a dwarf star. Whose size and mass are less than 3 times our sun. And because the temperature of this star is 40 percent lower than our sun. Scientists have named this dwarf star GJ 357.
The number of dwarf star in our universe is innumerable. But this dwarf star has gained importance for scientists, because of its planet. This star has several planets. The name of the planet that scientists first discovered was gj 357 b. After studying these stars, it is known that the light from these stars is dimming in 3.9 days. Which suggests that this star has a planet. Then the scientists started doing more research. And scientists succeed in finding a planet. This planet is approaching this star far, far closer than our Mercury.
GJ 357 dwarf star
The surface temperature of this planet is 254 ° C. That’s why it’s called Hot Earth. The planet orbits its stars once in 3.9 days. Scientists are beginning to study more about the planet and the star. Because scientists thought it was possible that the star could have more planets. From their old research, scientists have realized that the effects of some other gravitational force on the newly discovered planet. Following on from our research, our scientists look for 2 more planets near this star. The names of those two planets are GJ 357 c and another GJ 357 d in the Habitable Zone.
gj 357 c 3.4 times larger than our Earth. And it meets its star orbit, 9.1 days. The average surface temperature of the planet’s surface is around 127 ° C. Scientists are predicting that the planet will be liquid water. If there is liquid water on this planet, it will be stored in a superheated steam due to greater temperature. The main two planets of this dwarf star may not be optimal for life. Because the two planets are so hot. But the third planet gj 357 d is a planet in the Habitable Zone. The chances of having a life in it are very high. Scientists are very optimistic about the planet.
Planet like earth
Let’s know what is on this planet and why scientists are giving it so much importance. gj 357 d is the last planet we find. By studying this planet, scientists find that the planet fills an orbit of its star GJ 357 in about 55.7 days. And the planet is 0.95 astronomical units away from its star. That is about 5 percent less than the distance of our sun and earth. Researchers from scientists have estimated that liquid water can be stored on the planet just like our planet. The mass of this planet is 6 times greater than our planet. Because of this the planet is in the category of a super earth.
According to scientists, if the atmosphere is stored on the surface of this planet, then the planet will be able to hold the hits from its star. As a result, the chances of liquid water on the planet will increase significantly. Maybe combining Habitable Zones and Liquid Water will greatly increase the chances of Alien Life on this planet. More studies are still pending on this planet. As more data is received by scientists, we will discover many more unknown facts from it.
