NASA has discovered more worlds in this universe. In this new world, only 11 days make a year. NASA named this world Super Earth. At the same time, astronomers said that this newly discovered world is four times the mass of our earth. And this super earth is only 37 light years away from our earth.

A year on Super-Earth in just 11 days

According to NASA, the new world discovered by astronomers is called 'Ross 508b'. It takes only 10.8 days for this Earth to go around its Sun once. That is less than 11 days. Our earth revolves around the sun once in 365 days. And the super-Earth's sun is an M-type star. Much redder, colder, and fainter than our Sun.

Life can be found on that planet

Astronomers believe that the newly discovered Earth 'Ross 508b' may be able to hold water on its surface. As a result, it is believed that life can be found on this planet. It orbits the low-mass M dwarf star. Astronomers also believe that future observations about the possibility of life on such planets are important.

Super Earth lives in the world of dwarf stars

Astronomers have also observed that red dwarf stars are scattered around us. Dwarf stars also form three-quarters of the stars in our galaxy. And this dwarf star has a world of its own. There are many exoplanets. There is a super-Earth larger than Earth in that galaxy.

A priceless discovery of space science

Space.com reports that this super-Earth has been found very close to our planet. To the researchers, it is considered to be an invaluable discovery of space science. Because life can be found here. Scientists in Japan first spotted the super-Earth in May this year. The location of that super earth near the habitable zone is also known.

Planets in favorable positions from star to temperature

According to research, exoplanets orbit their stars at a distance that is favorable for the formation of water on the planet's surface. Earth's environment is favorable for the formation and retention of water, as is the location of our Earth. That is, the position of that super earth is at a favorable temperature from the star. As a result, the planet 'Ross 508b' is assumed to be in the habitable zone.

Using Japan's Subaru Telescope

Researchers using the Subaru Telescope at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan in Hawaii as well as NASA observed the planet near a dim star. The star is smaller than the sun. And the planet bigger than Earth can come around it in just 11 days.
