Curiosidad del día

El planeta más caliente

El planeta más caliente descubierto hasta ahora, según la revista New Scientist en 2008, es el WASP-12b. Este planeta tiene una temperatura de 2250º C, que quiere decir que es la mitad mas caliente que el Sol. Su masa es 1,5 veces mayor que la del planeta Júpiter. El hallazgo fue realizado por un grupo de astrónomos europeos y en él participó el Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias.
