This planet smells like rotten eggs, revolves around the Sun in 2 days, know more

There are thousands, millions of planets outside our solar system, about which scientists are slowly gathering information. Scientists have discovered a planet that smells like rotten eggs. Scientists from Johns Hopkins University have discovered this feature of the planet. The name of the planet is HD 189733 b. There is presence of hydrogen sulfide in its atmosphere. This is the compound that causes the smell of rotten eggs. The findings of scientists have been published in Nature magazine. Some more information has also been found about this planet.

HD 189733 b has been of interest to scientists for a long time. It is 64 light years away from Earth and is known for its extreme weather conditions. It revolves around its star very closely. It completes one revolution around its star in just two Earth days.

Being so close to its star, the temperature of the planet reaches 1,700 degrees Fahrenheit and winds blow at a speed of 5 thousand miles per hour and glass rains. This is why it is an inhospitable world.

With the help of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), the largest observatory deployed in space, scientists got more information about this planet. With the help of data received from Webb, scientists detected hydrogen sulfide on the planet. They also found out the sources of oxygen and carbon on the planet.

Scientists also found the level of heavy metals on this planet, which weigh as much as the planet Jupiter. According to reports, it is impossible for life to flourish on HD 189733 b because it is too hot. Despite this, the presence of hydrogen sulphide on the planet can be very important for future research.
