A Super Earth Discovery

News
Scientists have recently discovered an exoplanet orbiting the Barnard’s Star and have named it Barnard’s Star b. It is about 3.2 times as big as Earth and is located six light years away from our solar system. It is being regarded as the second-closest exoplanet to the Earth. The newly discovered exoplanet orbits its host star in about 233 days. Barnard’s Star b has a temperature of -170℃ and no life could possibly exist on this planet. Barnard Star is 10 billion years old, which makes it twice as old as Earth’s Sun. Since it gives off only 3% of the light
that our Sun does, Barnard’s Star b will always be an icy planet. Astronomers predict that the planet’s surface will have dim orange light during the day.
