科学家发现下岩浆雨、有岩浆海的“地狱星球”

Scientists discover bizarre hell planet where it rains rocks and oceans are made of lava

如果你认为2020年生活在地球上与地狱相当,那么行星K2-141b会证明你错了。

If you thought living on Earth in 2020 was comparable to hell, planet K2-141b is here to prove you wrong.

在这颗几百光年之外的炽热的星球上,海洋是由熔岩构成的,风速达到超音速,雨水是由岩石构成的。科学家们称这颗奇异的、地狱般的系外行星是迄今为止发现的最“极端”的行星之一。

On the scorching hot planet, hundreds of light-years away, oceans are made of molten lava, winds reach supersonic speeds and rain is made of rocks. Scientists have referred to the bizarre, hellish exoplanet as one of the most “extreme” ever discovered.

根据发表在英国皇家天文学会月刊上的一项最新研究,来自麦吉尔大学、约克大学和印度科学教育研究所的科学家们发现了一颗最新的“熔岩行星”的——这个星球围绕其主恒星的轨道非常近,以至于它的大部分由流动的熔岩海洋组成。

According to a new study published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, scientists from McGill University, York University and the Indian Institute of Science Education have uncovered details of one of the newest “lava planets” — a world that so closely orbits its host star that much of it is composed of flowing lava oceans.
