Gliese 436 b ,The Strangest Exoplanet Ever -The Neptune-sized planet orbits a cooler, less luminous red-dwarf star (dubbed Gliese completing one full orbit in just 2 days and hours.

Frost and Fire - Gliese 436 b (Exoplanet) - In the constellation of Leo 33.1 light years away, a Neptune-sized planet orbits a red dwarf star at a distance of 4.3 million kilometres—15 times closer than Mercury is to our sun. It’s no surprise that the planet, Gliese 436 b, has an incredibly hot surface temperature of 439 degrees Celsius, but it’s definitely a surprise that the planet is also covered in ice. Since the boiling point of water is 100 degrees Celsuis,

The most remarkable things happen when you push the laws of physics to their extremes. Such a place where this happens is space: Far away in the Gliese 436 star system is a Neptune-sized planet called.

The University of Central Florida has detected what could be its first planet, only two-thirds the size of Earth and located right around the corner, cosmically speaking, at a mere 33 light- years away. The exoplanet candidate called UCF

Frost and Fire In the constellation of Leo light years away, a Neptune-sized planet orbits a red dwarf star at a distance of million times closer than Mercury is to our sun.

exoplanet Gliese 436 b has a tail. It is located at a distance of 33 light years from Earth, and its mass comparable to the mass of Neptune. Presumably Gliese 436 b is composed of water, and its atmosphere - helium. The tail is formed by hydrogen evaporating from the atmosphere due to too close to the orbit of the star. exoplanet period of rotation around its star just 2.6 days.

This artist illustration compares the sizes of exoplanets GJ and GJ with Earth and Neptune. Hubble Space Telescope observations suggest the exoplanets are blanketed with clouds.

A Planet of Burning Ice - Gliese b is made almost entirely out of ice at 439 degrees Celsius. The water stays solid because the gravity pulls it all to the core keeping the molecules so densely packed they can not evaporate.

Gliese 436     We discovered the first Neptune-size planet, Gliese 436 b, in 2004. We were delighted to find a planet of minimum mass 22 times that of Earth. At the time, this seemed to be an incredibly small planet. I personally spent two years developing the statistic basis for securing this discovery
