Scientists may finally understand why large alien planets continue to transform into ‘super-Earths’

Air around a few planets beyond our solar system is escaping into space, making those worlds smaller, astronomers reported Nov. 15. And the atmospheres of these planets don’t get blown away by the strong winds from their stars like you might. wait, but rather by their own action.

It is known that about 90 tons of air from the Earth’s protective cover, responsible for sheltering life, escapes into space every day because our atmosphere is heated by the sun. However, at this extremely slow rate, scientists believe it would take at least 15 trillion years for our planet to be completely stripped of its atmosphere. So there’s nothing to worry about in that regard.
