Super Earth with Possibility of Water
Astronomers have just discovered a planet which is named as "Super Earth" which is circling sun and there is also a possibility that it can have water as well. An announcement on Monday states the discovery of 50 new planets which also includes super earth.
Lisa Kaltenegger is astronomer at Max Planck Institute for Astronomy in Heidelberg Germany and is really excited to say that it will be a real luck if we can find the same habitat on Super Earth like our planet earth.
Another interesting thing, Super Earth is circling an orange color star; which can be predicted as Sun for the newly discovered super earth. The orange color star is cooler and smaller than our planet earth sun and is about 36 light-years away.
One more interesting thing that new star can be seen in southern sky in the constellation Vela. Astronomers says that newly discovered planet which has been given the name of super earth visits the star for every 59 days which increases the its chances for being a habitat like our earth.
There are updates from teleconference that newly discovered planet super earth that it seems that planet is standing next to the star which has been named as HD85512b (sun for this planet) which also increases the chances that there will water which can be beneficial regarding habitat.
The new discovered super earth is about 3.5 times the mass of Earth.
It is not for the first time that super earth has been discovered. First super earth was discovered by Aleksander Wolszczan and Dale Frai in 1992. Two super earths were discovered in 2006 and in 2007 two other super earths were discovered by a team of Switzerland. All of the super earths discovered in the above mentioned years were larger in mass to our planet earth.
In 2008 David P. Bennett discovered a new super earth which can be said the smallest super earth found. In 2009 another super earth with a mass estimated at 4.8 Earth masses was announced and another super earth was announced on dated January 5, 2010.
In general one can say that super earth is a planet with higher mass than our planet earth. When it comes to the characteristics of super earths; due to larger mass their characteristics varies from earth. It cannot be predicted that what will be the temperature of super earths but scientists are predicting that there can be more chances for life on super earths.
Here you can find a huge collection of Super Earth Pictures. Super Earth Pictures shown below clearly describes the structure and surroundings for Super Earth. If you are fond of planets and you feel yourself with suspense, I can surely say that Super Earth Pictures shown below will keep you motivated at the end of snaps. Some of the Super Earth Pictures are too close that that one can feel him/ hers right there and can feel that he/ she is seeing super earth pictures while standing at shore. Personally I would like to appreciate all those photographers and astrologists who have worked really hard to make snap these pictures and have discovered a new planet for human being to learn more about creatures of God. Super Earth Pictures shown below states glory of God at its peak.
