Astronomers Discover Non-Habitable Earth-Sized 'Pi Planet' With A 3.14-Day Orbit by Macsjebs: 5:14pm On Sep 23, 2020
The planet zips around its star every 3.14 days - a number famous for being the first three digits of the universal mathematics constant, pi

Astronomers have discovered a new Earth-size planet dubbed the ‘pi planet’, due to its 3.14-day orbit.

The planet was discovered by researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, using data from NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope.

The planet zips around its star every 3.14 days - a number famous for being the first three digits of the universal mathematics constant, pi.

Prajwal Niraula, a graduate student who led the study, said: “The planet moves like clockwork.”

The researchers estimate that the planet has a radius of 0.95 that of Earth’s, making it very similar in size to our planet.

It orbits a cool, low-mass star that’s about one-fifth the size of the sun, according to the researchers.

But while it takes Earth 365 days to orbit the sun, the planet circles its star ever 3.14, at blistering speeds of 181,000 miles per hour.

While the planet is likely terrestrial, the researchers don’t think it’s habitable.

Its tight orbit brings the planet close enough to its star to heat its surface to temperatures of around 176°C.

Mr Niraula explained: “This would be too hot to be habitable in the common understanding of the phrase.”

The researchers believe that there could be many more planets like the pi-planet out there, which could be discovered with the James Webb Space Telescope.

Mr Niraula added: “There will be more interesting planets in the future, just in time for JWST, a telescope designed to probe the atmosphere of these alien worlds. With better algorithms, hopefully one day, we can look for smaller planets, even as small as Mars.”

The Events of the times have Overwhelmed our Scientists..
They have been Rattled.
Many of them Cannot Define or Explain what is Happening..

The Truth is that Man cannot know or Explain beyond the Capacity God Almighty allows..

Whatever Scientist or anyone Says that is not in the Handbook (The Holy Bible)God gave to Humanity is Simply guess work. It Cannot Stand ! Neither will it Come to Pass.

What God Gave to Man is this Earth. This Earth is Coming to a Close. It is Sinking..

The Rapture of the Saints is the Event that will Mark the Beginning of the End .
After the Rapture, the 7year Tribulation period will follow , which will be a period of untold Suffering and Destruction on Humans and the Earth respectively..

This Great Tribulation period will make The State of Isreal to Know and Believe The KING of Kings, Jesus Christ as the Messiah.

The Event of Isreal Accepting and Believing on JESUS Christ is what will usher a Whole New World. Then We will see New Earth.
Then we will see Heaven on Earth..

Anything apart from these Truth is a Figment of the Imagination ..

Everyone says the earth is special.

Yes it is. To life as we know it. Suppose there exists another form of life, our special planet may be hostile to it and to it, earth will just be one of the non-special planets in the galaxy. The point is planet earth is special to us because its our only home.

Space travel is not possible for now. The space is so vast that it will take the fastest space probe more than 50 thousand years to reach the NEAREST star.

Think about it. You do not know anyone that live 50 thousand years ago. Human have not discovered AGRICULTURE 50,000 ago. There were no Villages or empires 50,000 years ago. Human were living as hunters and gatherers and one of our cousins Homo Neanderthals were living in europe.

I love astronomy.

There are starving children all over the world, but they are moving to develop the planets and moon and stars.
In the next 100 years, no one would have moved to the moon or any planet to live.
We'd be dead - you, me, the astronauts, billionaires, everyone else!
Let's live at the moment people, let's make the world a better place for you and I!

Until this world folds up, no science can rival an inch of the wisdom of God, they just keep on discovering new things and marveling and God is up there looking like "oh! Una never even start sef"

Science sometimes contradicts itself. Geography books told us of only 9 planets. We crammed them. Suddenly, more and more planets are revealed everytime, implyingthey weren't sure of the 9 planets they made us cram so, how many planets are there now? No indisputable answers yet.

The science of space is so interesting!

I know one day science will ensure that man will live in space, because at the rate climate change is evolving, the earth would be unsuitable for man to live some day or peradventure the earth get hit by a monumental astronomical object.
