Godzilla of Earth

Why do we search for other planets? How big is the Universe around us? How big of an emergency is to find another Earth-like planet? Keep reading my blog, we will figure this out together. Leave me a comment if you have anything related to this subject to say. Now let’s get in to my next subject. Godzilla of Earth.

A scientist has discovered in 2011 a new rocky planet, 17 times bigger than Earth. The planet is 560 light-years away in the Draco constellation and it circles a sun-like star.

The planet was named Kepler 10c because it was discovered by the US spacecraft’s Kepler Telescope. The telescope finds planets by looking for stars that dim when a planet passes in front of it. By measuring the amount of dimming, it can calculate the size or diameter of the planet. But determining the type of planet it’s not …

Water is NASA’s Game of “Where’s Waldo?” That Spans the Universe, Starting with Mars

For quite some time now NASA has been searching the nearby planets and their moons for any sort of sign of life and the basic necessity of life, water.

Any trace of water that can be found will help to both prove, and disprove a lot of the scientific theories about the planets that surround Earth.  Not only will it do that, but it will also provide us with the necessary resources needed for human survival on another planet.

In recent history, the pursuit of water has shifted to the planet Mars.

In the month of September 2015, NASA confirmed the evidence that liquid water does indeed flow on the surface on Mars thanks to the help of scientists from the Georgia Institute of Technology located in Atlanta, GA.  We previously knew that Mars had polar ice caps, but we could never find evidence that confirmed that water existed …

The Ice Planet

The Ice Planet or Wise 0855-0714 is a brown dwarf. It is the fourth closest extrasolar system to the sub and the coldest object found in the interstellar space with a temperature between -55f to 8F degrees.
Wise 0855-0714 was detected on March 2013 and the long name indicates the coordinates of the object in the constellation Hydra.
The Ice Planet was studied with Nasa’s Wide field Impact Survey Explorer Telescope and Gemini North Telescope.
Based on the observation the Ice planet has a large displacement in his position which relates with his distance from the solar system and the astronomical measures of this chances across the sky are also directly observed.the ice planet
Based on this information the Ice planet has a mass of 3 to 10 the mass of Jupiter. Combining the his luminosity distance and mass the ice planet its considered to be the coldest known brown dwarf to …

The Diamond Planet

The name of “ Diamond Planet” derives from the large quantity of carbon on the planet.
The planet 55 Cancri e is situated at a center of a solar system 40 light-years away from the Milky Way and its considered to have a more carbon than oxygen on her surface.
This planet earns his name as “ Super Earth because it’s a rocky world and it.s orbiting a star like our sun, but it’s 2 times bigger than the earth and his mass its 8 times bigger than the Earth

1 year on 55 Cancri e is equal to 18 hours on planet Earth.
55 Cancri e was discovered in August 2004, by detecting variations in its stars radial velocity. It was the 4th planet discovered orbiting the same star Gliese 436b. It was carefully studied in 2011 when it was discovered crossing in front of it’s parent star multiple …
