With the ever-increasing number of discoveries of planets becomes more and more clear: “The universe is full of strange and fascinating worlds that differ greatly from what we know of our own solar system. As an NDR report, researchers from the University of Geneva, switzerland, have discovered an extrasolar planet, which turns out to be an extremely strange world. On the Planet, with the catalog number of the Wasp-76b, is a 390 light-years away from the gas giant in the constellation of Pisces.

Special: a detailed investigation of the Environment – this is done by means of a spectral analysis of the light is in Transit in front of its star, it is possible to have been able to demonstrate this, the researchers have substantial quantities of iron and of steam. The report is in the journal, Nature, to apply to the Wasp-76b, with the star always in the same direction. In addition, its orbit is so close to him that he is about 1,000 Times more radiation than the earth is from the sun.
As a result, The Dayside is the only 2400 ° c), hot enough to cause evaporation of the metal. The Global climate system, and then checks to see which of these iron, the clouds move to the dark side of the planet, which is about 1000 degrees cooler. In the transition zone, the so-to-speak,-spent the night prevails, and there is no more time to happen “You could say that it’s the rainy season that is on this planet, in the night, the only thing that it’s raining iron,” said one of the researchers.
The monitoring has the added Benefit of a
His point was that those researchers using the “Very Large Telescope”, it is possible, in the European Sdsternwarte in the Atacama Desert, which operates in the North of Chile. The researchers demonstrated in their study that the significant differences in temperature on the planet to show it, but also all the methods are developed for a precise study of the chemistry of the atmosphere, it is possible to. “What we need now is a new way to explore the climate of the most extreme exoplanets,” says the research head David Ehrenreich.
