HD 106906 b: the most mysterious planet in the Milky Way

Publicado por Prieto en

The exoplanet HD 106906 b, is so far from its star that it takes 13,539 years to return around its star something that takes the earth 365 days.

If you ever thought that you are alone or that maybe you just feel lonely let me tell you that there is a planet that is much lonelier than you and that scientists thought this was impossible but it turns out that it was not.

HD 106906 b is known as the loneliest planet of all and it is not for less since it is at 650 astronomical units, which means that it is 738 times the distance from the sun to the earth that was believed impossible because this challenges any type of hypothesis about the origins of the planets.

The problem that arises is that in addition to being practically exiled from its solar system it is too large to be so far away since it is 11 times the size of Jupiter, which makes it an extremely large exoplanet.

It is located at a distance of 300 light years from Earth and its orbital period is 13,539 years, which means that what takes the earth 365 days to complete a return around its sun to HD 106906 b takes 13,539 years. This is due as I mentioned earlier to the incredible distance in which it is located from its star.

Fun facts

Jupiter is 318 times larger than the earth which means that inside Jupiter fit about 318 planets earths, but it is that in the exoplanet HD 106906 b fit 11 Jupiter which is already telling you how immense HD 106906 b is.

A curious fact is that if for some reason you managed to live on that planet your birthday would be every 13,539 years which you would live and die without reaching your first year.

HD 106906 b is about 350 times younger than our planet earth, it has a surface temperature of about 1500 ° Celsius, this due to the residual heat of its recent formation. But what is a fact is that no one can yet explain how this planet was formed.

Although it is not known how the planet HD 106906 b was formed, there are 2 theories and one of them says that the formation of giant planets is due to a rapid collapse of a planetary disk. But nevertheless this theory is very little credible because the planetary disks do not contain enough mass to be able to afford the existence of a planet with 11 times the size of Jupiter.
