For the first time, scientists have detected an atmosphere around a planet beyond our solar system that's just a little bit larger than Earth. The astronomers captured images of the planet's star using a telescope at the European Southern Observatory (ES in Chile. The researchers measured the star system with seven different wavelengths and used small dips in the star's brightness to determine the radius of the planet passing by during its 1.6-day orbits, according to a statement from the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy, which collaborated on the research. They were able to further clarify the planet's radius.



The exoplanet GJ 1132b, which orbits the dwarf star GJ 1132, is located about 39 light-years away from Earth. It has a radius about 1.4 times that of Earth and is 1.6 times Earth's mass, according to the new study. When the planet was first discovered, researchers called it a potential Venus twin because it's a rocky world with a very high surface temperature — and now, they've found that the planet and Venus might have a thick atmosphere in common, too (although it would have a different composition).



While observers have pinpointed atmospheres around much larger, Jupiter-like gas giants orbiting other stars — and a larger super-Earth, about eight times Earth's mass — this is the first evidence of an atmosphere around an exoplanet that's near Earth's size, the study's researchers said. Researchers can use planets' atmospheres to try and determine if these worlds are suitable for life as we know it on Earth, or even to identify potential traces of life recorded there.



"While this is not the detection of life on another planet, it's an important step in the right direction: The detection of an atmosphere around the super-Earth GJ 1132b marks the first time that an atmosphere has been detected around an Earth-like planet other than Earth itself," John Southworth, a researcher at Keele University in the United Kingdom and first author on the new work, said in a statement from the university.

I like the fancy collar on the Stockholm shirt. It would make a good uniform shirt for the voyage to our newfound world.

Just finished a huge Easter dinner and am stuffed to the gills. Turkey sammiches tomorrow.

    Quoting newfinder:
    Only 39-years away (at light speed).

    But at Warp Speed we will be only days away

    XOXO

We need Captain Kirk to drop by an investigate the place for us.

One of Saturns moons Encelopitus has water geysers they say may harbour bacterial life was another recently anounced discovery few days ago.Is that the 7 rocky planet solar system? Yes that 7 planet system has more than one possibility for living organisms to exist!

I seen that on Encelopitus the other day but not had a chance in investigate it further. It does have possibilities.

I think Encelopitus is actually a Deathstar its likeness to the Star Wars mothership the geysers could be toilets flushing or nuclear reactor coolants discharge from the aliens . No doubt they would be loaded with much bacterialogical agents.It also has hexagonical shapes like twin geodisical domes clamped together leaving a long ridged seam running across its meridian ,like a two halves of a walnut shell.This is not a real moon as far as Im concerned its very much suspiciously looks artificially made .I find any new information about this particular body of mass fascinating .The true facts about this device wont be revealed until the mainstream and powers that be finally reveal disclosure of our Earth being visited by an extraterrestial presence to the public masses.In the meantime I hope it doesnt suddenly come out of its parking space to destroy our planet, da big KABOOM!

Maybe we need to drop in for a visit.. Tell them we are the Fuller Brush man!
