The celestial body loses the weight record rates. From Earth it is at distance of 96 light years. The group of astronomers of Johns Hopkins University (USA) found the dying GJ 3470b exoplanet. By the sizes it is comparable to the Neptune. Its main feature - evaporation by record rates. Writes Phys.org about it. The celestial body is located in 96 light years from Earth and rotates around a red dwarfish star. The planet was found within the research Panchromatic Comparative Exoplanet Treasury program. The purpose of the program is observation of the atmosphere of exoplanets in three types of beams: infrared, ultra-violet and optical. Observations by means of Hubble Space Telescope showed that the planet already lost a considerable part of the atmosphere and continues to lose it. At the same time the speed of processes is a hundred times higher, than at other similar planets. According to data of experts, the celestial body lost about 35 percent of the weight. However completely the planet will evaporate through several billion years. Earlier it was reported that scientists found in a near star huge суперземлю - more largely than Earth by 3.2 times.
