WASP-18b is huge: astronomers discover this planet so hostile that it cost them to believe it.

When the news of an exoplanet recently studied with an atmosphere begins to appear in the headlines, it is usually because the distant world is potentially similar to Earth, causing the possibility of extraterrestrial life or even a future potential home for humanity. WASP-18b is not one of those types of exoplanets. In fact, it is so incredibly hostile to what we know about life that researchers had a hard time explaining its existence at all.

WASP-18b is an absolutely huge planet, with a mass of the order of 10 times that of Jupiter, and it is also incredibly hot. The planet orbits its star at a very short distance, which is not at all strange for exoplanets, but what makes the strange world so strange is that it has a thick atmosphere that left scientists scratching their heads. After observing the planet several times, the data revealed that the atmosphere of WASP-18b is full of poisonous carbon monoxide. That is not just a rarity among known planets; It is essentially unheard of. The composition of WASP-18b defies all expectations. We do not know of any other extrasolar planet where carbon monoxide completely dominates the upper atmosphere.

The research, which was published in the Astrophysical Journal Letters, also reveals that the disconcerting atmosphere of the planet is devoid of water and, therefore, of oxygen. The combination of no water, no oxygen, incredible heat and a lot of carbon monoxide means that WASP-18b is not the kind of place you would like to spend a day, or even a few seconds. Deadly conditions also suggest that there really is no conceivable way of life, since we know that it could be formed or exist there. That’s fine anyway, since the world is about 325 light-years away, so visiting it is out of the question.

That said, discovery is important for a number of reasons, one of which is that it totally rewrites what scientists thought they knew about how atmospheres form around planets. This particular example is obviously hostile to life, but it could raise the possibility that certain exoplanets form much friendlier atmospheres in ways we had not yet considered. More research on WASP-18b is planned for later, and scientists hope to use the new James Webb Space Telescope to get a better view of it.

    Scientism and fiction..The only thing "scientists"/anything to get my name known frauds, find in the sky are plasma formations and nothing solid. Pure BS sold as science.

Nibiru today – But it

There are now five different lines of observational evidence pointing to the existence of Planet Nine,” said Konstantin Batygin, a planetary astrophysicist at Caltech in Pasadena.

Some of these clues relate to the gravitational tug of Planet Nine, which appears to be disturbing the distant Kuiper Belt, which is made up of icy objects and stretches from Neptune out into deep space.

Its believed Planet Nine is a “super-Earth”, the name for a type of large world which appears to be very common in the universe.

Doom-mongers have consistently claimed that a hidden world called Nibiru will crash into Earth.

Nasa has denied this theory, previously writing: “The planet in question, Niburu, doesn’t exist, so there will be no collision.

“The story of Niburu has been around for years (as has the ‘days of darkness’ tale) and is periodically recycled into new apocalyptic fables.”

However, it’s feared Planet Nine will eventually destroy the solar system by causing a devastating “death dance”.

It could one day hurtle through our solar system, sending planets “pinballing” into outer space or plunging into the Sun.
