Rocky ‘Super-Earth’ Planet Discovered near Milky Way’s Old Star

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Scientists have discovered a huge 'super Earth' planet near one of the oldest stars in the galaxy. - Science news - The planet, called TOI-561b, is about 50 per cent larger than Earth, but requires less than half a day to orbit its star.This is partly due to the planet's close proximity to its star, which also results in blistering surface temperatures of over...
