An ambitious quest by space scientists is to find another Earth-like planet. According to the report of Cosmos Magazine, now an astronomer has introduced the theory of Super Earth i.e. giant Earth between Mars and Jupiter. Which tells that if a super earth comes in our solar system, to what extent it can affect the balance of the solar system. According to this theory, if this happens then life on earth may end. How? They also know.
An experiment has been conducted at the University of California, Riverside (UCR). With the help of computer, a new planet has been created between Mars and Jupiter. Since there is a considerable distance between Mars and Jupiter, this place was chosen. But will this affect other planets in the solar system?
Professor Stephen Kane at UCR says that Earth is the largest of the cosmic planets. While Neptune is the smallest gaseous giant. But in width it is 4 times bigger than the earth and 17 times heavier. Outside our solar system, there are planets larger than Earth that are similar in composition to it. These are called super earths. At the same time, a big gap is considered between Mars and Jupiter. Astronomers say that there could have been another planet between these two planets. But right now there are many asteroids in between which have a complete belt.
By making a planet between these two, Kane and his team tried to know what would be the effect on the earth if the 9th planet existed. In the experiment, he found that this 9th planet could affect the orbit of all the other planets in the solar system. Its impact was going to be negative on all the planets. After the experiment, scientists found that it is good that no other planet is present in between them. That can greatly affect the solar system.
It has been said in the study that the mass of Jupiter means that the mass is 318 times that of the Earth. Even if all the planets of the solar system are combined, then Jupiter is heavy on all. Therefore, if the 9th planet had come and affected Jupiter’s orbit even a little bit, then it was sure to have a wide impact on the entire solar system. Scientists say that if this had happened, life on earth could have ended. Because if the imaginary planet named Super Earth had had a slight impact on the Earth’s orbit, then the conditions here would have been different, which would not have been favorable for life. Life here could also end completely.
Professor Kane says that a small-sized super-Earth may remain somewhat stable between Mars and Jupiter. But if there is a slight change in the position of the planet, then its consequences can be bad.
