Kepler 10b

since earth is no longer suitable we need a new place right?

THE FACTS!

The diameter of Kepler-10b is only about 1.4 times the diameter of Earth.
  • The maximum temperature on Kepler 10b is around 1,400C (2,500F), which is hot enough to turn its surface into molten lava. Kepler-10, the star that hosts Kepler-10b, is located 560 light-years from our solar system in the Draco constellation. It was the first rocky planet to be detected outside our solar system.

did u know?

  • Kepler 10b orbits a star very similar to our own sun but it is around 7 billion years older.
  • The effect of solar wind is constantly stripping material from Kepler 10b, leaving a trail of debris as it orbits its star.
  • Kepler 10b has a very high density, meaning it must have a huge amount of iron in its composition.
  • The force of gravity is around twice as strong on Kepler 10b than it is on Earth.

ARE U READY TO COME NOW!?!?!?!

after all that.. lets ditch earth and lets go!
