Scientists suggest that the discovered planets that might have life
Astronomers have discovered two super-Earth around the star Gilese 887, which is approximately 11 light years from our planet. Two of the exoplanet Gilese called Gilese 887b and 887c. Scientists claim that they can “potentially have life.” Super Land called planet whose mass is higher than Earth, but significantly lower than that of Neptune and Uranus. The astronomers, led by Sandra Jeffers of the University of Goettingen in Germany, has published a new study about these exoplanets in the journal Science, reports comments.ua.
In the journal, detailing the new discovery of these two super-earths orbiting very bright stars, “red dwarf” GJ 887. This discovery is a huge leap in search, which aims to find out are we alone in the universe. Perhaps the most exciting thing in these two new super-Lands is that they lie close to the inhabited area of the “red dwarf” where water can exist in liquid form. Scientists say that these new planets can have thicker atmospheres than Earth, and potentially contain life.
Based on their findings, astronomers say that two extrasolar planets have a short orbit, only 9.3 and 21.8 days. This indicates that the two super-Earth move quickly, even much faster than mercury. Scientists also assess the climate of Gliese 887c to about 70 degrees Celsius.
