After returning to the Milky Way Galaxy, scientists expressed surprise at the discovery of a new planet – among others

Some astronomers have raised concerns about the discovery of a planet that glows like “Chocolate Floss,” as they describe it, even though it appears larger than the gas giant “Jupiter,” insisting that the discovered planet was discovered outside our solar system.

Scientists said they were surprised by WASP-193b’s low density compared to the planet’s size, and they believe it is composed mostly of helium and hydrogen, according to a study published in the journal Nature Astronomy.

The planet “WASP-193b” is considered the second least dense planet, but it remains a mystery to scientists due to its large size, which is 50% of our solar system compared to Jupiter.

The thinnest planet

“This planet is very thin,” Khaled al-Barqawi, co-leader of the discovery team and postdoctoral researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), said in response to questions raised about the existence of this delicate planet.

Some scientists believe that this planet is so dense that it floats on the surface of water, making it an excellent model for studying the formation and evolution of other planets.

This planet is located outside our known solar system and is 1,200 light-years away, and one year is approximately equal to 5.8 trillion miles, and it orbits a star similar to the Sun, and it has been confirmed that there are other planets outside our current solar system.

Scientists believed that the intense heat from the Sun of the nearest planet WASP-193b would cause significant inflation in its atmosphere.

The scientists added that the planet “WASP-193b” could not be inhabited by humans and would not be habitable due to its extremely hot temperature and no water or liquids.

The appearance of the planet comes just days after researchers revealed a “massive attractor” that is pulling the Milky Way and its neighbors out of its path, causing great concern among scientists and the full details of how the Milky Way and its neighbors are still not known.
