STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What is the smallest known Earth-like planet?
Scientist recently discovered the
smallest earth like planet known to humankind. An international team of
astronomers used the mircrolensing technique to find this new planet.
The planet by the name of OGLE-2005-BLG-390Lb is
not in our solar system, has five times the Earth’s mass and is around 25,000
light years away in the Milky Way. It orbits a red dwarf star. The planet is
very cold and unlikely to have any life. It takes around 10 years for it to
orbit the red dwarf star, which is not like our sun in the fact that it is
smaller than our sun and much cooler.
