Hubble helps discover a weird new planet type

The planet was discovered in 2009, but scientists have learned some interesting details.

It orbits its red-dwarf sun at 1.3 million miles and has seven times the weight of the earth but only 36% the density.

The world appears to be made of mostly water (far more than earth), and its atmospheric temperature is around 450 Fahrenheit.

These details are odd but lead to some even odder conclusions.

See the original article for more details.


There aren’t any pictures, of course (you know, cuz they don’t exist), but hey, this pretty artists rendering was attached to the article!.
