The exoplanet named Au Mic b, is way too sizzling to host life, say astronomers.

Its solar is just 20 to 30million years outdated — roughly 180 instances youthful than ours.

Nasa’s Dr Tom Barclay mentioned: “Finding out this planet may give us perception into how our personal photo voltaic system fashioned.”

About 30,000 miles broad, Au Mic b is more likely to be primarily comprised of gases — and would be the form of a teardrop.

Co-author Dr Jonathan Gagne, of Montreal College, mentioned AU Microscopii has a powerful magnetic area – and will likely be very lively.

He mentioned: “It’s a small star – with solely about 50 per cent of the Solar’s mass.”


Astrophysicists have been trying to find exoplanets on this photo voltaic system for greater than a decade.

Dr Gagne added: “It took practically 15 years to seek out AU Mic b.

“The quite a few spots and eruptions on the floor of its solar hampered its detection – which was already sophisticated by the presence of the disc.”
