An international team of astronomers has discovered a close-in super-Earth exoplanet in the HD 164922 planetary system.
Astronomers at the University of Canterbury (UC) have found an incredibly rare new Super-Earth planet towards the center of the galaxy. The planet is one of only a handful that have been discovered with both size and orbit comparable to that of Earth.
Astronomers using the CARMENES spectrograph at Calar Alto Observatory in Spain have discovered a super-Earth exoplanet orbiting an M-dwarf star in the binary system Gliese 338. The newfound planet orbits on the inner edge of the habitable zone and is much more massive than Earth.
Tess mission has detected three new planets and six supernovae in its first three months
An international team of astronomers has discovered a planetary system containing at least three massive planets, orbiting the bright late-G/early-K-type dwarf star K2-229. What’s the most intriguing is that one of these extrasolar planets is a super-Earth class object with a Mercury-like composition.
Astronomers using data from the NASA Kepler spacecraft’s reborn K2 mission have found a triple system of super-Earth exoplanets around a cool star called LP 415-17.
We learned more about neutron stars, found more planets and said goodbye to Cassini in 2017. We end the year with a better picture of the Universe than we started it with.
With the discovery of thousands of planets beyond the solar system, scientists are eager to learn if rocky “super-Earths,” up to 10 times more massive than Earth, might also be able to harbor life.
