Scientists have found two planets similar to Earth

Ученые нашли две планеты, похожих на Землю

They rotate around a red dwarf tigarden, which gives the mass of the Sun ten times.

An international team of astronomers has found two “Earth-like” planet orbiting the star at a distance of only 12.5 light years from our planet. The results of the study were published in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, writes Newsweek.

The researchers used several tools around the world, including the office CARMENES at the Observatory Kalar Alto in Spain, Muscat 2 the instrument with the telescope Carlos Sanchez in the Observatorio del Teide (also in Spain) and the Observatory of the Las Cumbre in California.

The work involved researchers from the University of Goettingen in Germany, and the Institute of astrophysics of the Canary Islands (Spain). Open the planets revolve around the star tigarden in the constellation of Aries. They’re a little more Land and are in the so-called “habitable zone”.

They are also a little more Land in size and can contain on its surface the water.

The star around which these planets revolve is a red dwarf and its mass is only one tenth of the mass of the Sun. The temperature on its surface reaches 2704 degrees Celsius.

Earlier it was reported that astronomers have discovered a planet with clouds, composed of iron and silicate.
