Astronomy Science ~ COROT-7b is exoplanet orbiting around the star CoRoT-7 is located in the constellation Monoceros.

And here are some interesting facts about the planets COROT-7b

1. Corot 7b is a exoplanets within 489 light years from Earth.

2. The planet was discovered in 2009 by using the transit method of detection.

3. This is the first rocky planet found outside our Solar System.

4. Corot 7b orbits a yellow dwarf star similar to our sun despite the star slightly smaller and cooler.

5. The planet orbits very close to its star, therefore the surface of Corot 7b has turned into molten lava.

6. Corot 7b very hot with a surface temperature of about 2.500C (4.500F).

7. The astronomers suspect that the planet was originally a giant gas planet with strayed too close to its star, making it evaporate atmosphere and only a stone. Gas giant exoplanets lost their atmospheres are classified in such a way as chthonian planet, but Corot 7b is still classified as a Super Earth.

8. A year on this planet lasts only 20.5 hours. This is because Corot 7b orbits very close to its star, about 1.6 million miles (2.6 million km) from its star. The distance is 22 times more than the distance between Mercury and the sun.

9. Corot 7b is estimated to have a mass of about 5 to 8 times that of Earth da radius 1.58 times larger than the Earth. Therefore, this planet is one of the smallest exoplanets ever found.

10. The planet is in the suspect does not have the atmosphere because it has been vaporized by the heat of its star. If there is any atmosphere, it must be very thin.
