Mars has lengthy been believed to were chilly, useless and dry for aeons, yet there's now impressive new evidence that not just was once Mars a comparatively hot and rainy position in geologically contemporary occasions, yet that even this present day there are significant reserves of water frozen underneath the planet’s floor. in addition to casting attention-grabbing new insights into Mars’ prior, this discovery can also be forcing an entire reconsider concerning the mechanisms of world planetary swap and the prospect that there's microbial existence on Mars.

69 g cm−2 ). However, these ‘close-in’ extrasolar planets are likely to be quite different from our own Jupiter, due to the fact that they are much closer to their stars. 38 AU), these planets are bombarded by radiation from their parent stars and are therefore expected to be hot (T > 1000 K). Jupiter, at 5 AU from the Sun, has a blackbody temperature of only 110 K. 5 Spectroscopy 27 composition of the hot Jupiters to be significantly different from that of Jupiter. For example, at low temperatures (T < 1000 K), chemical equilibrium calculations show that carbon is mostly present in the form of CH4 , while at higher temperatures it appears as CO (Burrows and Sharp, 1999).

This name is something of a misnomer, since the so-called hot Jupiters are quite different from our own Jupiter – because of the fact that they orbit at such small orbital distances, they are much hotter and therefore have different chemical species present in their atmospheres. 5 days) and are more massive than Jupiter. 1. , 2004). 5 Mass (MJ) Fig. 3.
