Next to Earth found a new earth-like planet

Could a new exoplanet to be habitable?

Planet and Solar system are in a fairly densely populated area of our galaxy. So, we already wrote about the potential discovery of a huge amount of planets, some of which may be deemed to be may . This time, astronomers were able to find a new exoplanet a little larger than the Earth orbiting a red dwarf at a distance of 66.5 light years from Earth. Can this opening to bring something new to modern science?

How many exoplanets is adjacent to Land?

As you may know most of our readers, at the present time, scientists were able to detect more than 4,100 different sizes, with sometimes quite an incredible performance. Due to the fact that the rocky extrasolar planets often look like small and very dim objects, even in the most powerful telescope, a predominant share among the confirmed planets are the giant planets and planets, whose dimensions slightly exceed the dimensions of Neptune. In recent years the situation with the discovery of the solid planets has improved somewhat thanks to the Kepler and TESS missions. As the portal , astronomers have been able to detect smaller exoplanets with a mass of Earth and Venus, which are believed to have a rocky surface.

According to an international team of researchers from the Institute of astrophysics and space research them. M. V. Kavli like very difficult to analyze and describe because in most cases they are located near the relatively faint stars, red dwarfs, of which by and large, is our galaxy. Open a new exoplanet is not an exception in this case: object GJ 1252b orbiting the star M-dwarf, discovered by the TESS telescope from a distance of approximately equal to 66.5 light years away from our planet. Being 1.2 times the size of Earth in diameter and about twice our planet's mass is rotating around a small star GJ 1252, having approximately 40 percent by weight and size of the Sun.

The Year was found on exoplanet lasts just 12.4 hours, which is a very negative indicator for the potential existence of life on its surface. In addition, due to its extremely close orbit, one of the parties GJ 1252b may be permanently facing its star, which significantly intensifies the already not the most comfortable weather conditions are far . Despite the many negative factors for the origin of life, GJ 1252b can be easily detected with the help of a powerful telescope. Due to the fact that the parent star exhibits relatively calm and peaceful temper, although he is not powerful flashes, and exoplanet “runs” in front of its star every 12 hours, the scientific world will be all possibilities for the analysis of the surface and atmosphere of the planet in the near future with the help of spectroscopic observations.

In Addition to the GJ 1252b, a large number of nearby rocky worlds, scientists were pleased with the space telescope TESS, who discovered rocky exoplanets Pi Mensae LHS 3844 c and b are 60 and 49 light years, respectively. The researchers believe that the more rocky planets we can find and the more data we can collect about their structure and main characteristics, the more chances you will have of mankind in order to find out whether our Earth is something truly unique on a cosmic scale, or is a quite familiar phenomenon. If so, then discovered exoplanet GJ 1252 b can be an excellent start for such a critical issues for humanity.
