WASP-76b: An Exoplanet with iron rain


Astronomers at the European southern Observatory (ESO) has observed an exoplanet that is your Belief falls down to the evaporated iron, such as in the rain. Responsible for the ultra-hot temperatures of over 2,400 degrees Celsius, on the giant celestial body, called WASP-76b, the star is transformed into a limit on the Rotation, only one side can be. To ensure that, even when metals such as iron, are as follows: in the atmosphere, they say. The strong winds push these to steam iron it to the night side where the temperatures are relatively low, such as up to 1500 degrees Celsius. Then, the iron, and then it would fall down as the rain came down.

As for the astronomers to explain to you, you can be odd to the States, thanks to the tool-of-Espresso on the ESO’s Very Large Telescope to analyze it. The spectrograph was originally developed in order to analyze the tiny movements of the stars, the planets, all the indicators are. There has, however, been so much more powerful, ” explains Peter, the Fig tree, one of the researchers with the Tool. The Echelle Spectrograph for Rocky Exoplanet-and Stable Spectroscopic Observations, is due to its extreme stability, even in a “first-class device for the study of exoplanet atmospheres”. The spectrum of the star to be analyzed, the exoplanets may be altered by passing it to a minimum.

In the case of WASP-76b, and they have found that the Instrument has a very strong signature of iron, of steam, at the same time-zone on the planet-page separates in the course of the day, the night, on the side, they say. This steam iron is not to be seen in the adjacent breakfast page. The name is, that “the atmosphere on the hot day-side of WASP-76b steam iron is available in Abundance,” says the physicist, Maria Rosa Zapatero Osorio. For a fraction of what it is going to be pushed away, because of the Rotation and the winds of the night on the side “Where the iron hits, and in many places the cooler, it condenses and rains down.” The transition area was in the cascade from a massive condensation on the front in the Shape of a Cloud.


As for the earth, for the majority of the exoplanets are confirmed and non-confirmed ( * ), in a Zone that is habitable in the first place.
