CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Astronomers have discovered a close new world about the size of Earth, where a year lasts just under 10 days.

At a distance of 11 light-years, Ross 128 b is the second-closest planet to be detected yet outside our solar system with surface temperatures potentially similar to ours.

Look at the bright side.  You would not have to clean the snow off it would be gone in 2 or 3 days.   :lol:

So many things to ponder about a 10 day year. I wonder about a growing season and what could grow?

Whatever does make it, would have to be damned hearty. :biggrin:
Which is why I said I'd hate to see mosquitos in a place where extremes can't hurt them.

"Hey Jim, would ya look at that, a helicopter sitting on that huge mound, looks like it's refueling.

Bob, that's no chopper, that's a Mosquito sucking what appears to be, an elephant dry.
