This exotic planet may have ultrasonic winds in its vaporized rock atmosphere



Scientists think they have identified a world of lava so impressive that it may have a thin regional atmosphere of evaporated rock, where it is closest to the star.

That exoplanets was called K2-141b and was originally discovered in 2017. The world is half the size of Earth but orbits very close to its star, a layer smaller than our star, so that it completes a number of rings per day on Earth with the same surface permanently facing the star. Now, scientists predict those factors that mean 2/3 of the surface of K2-141b is permanently sunlit – so much so that not only part of the world is covered in lava oceanBut some of those rocks can even evaporate into the atmosphere.
