‘Super-Earth’ Planet With An Orbital Period Of Less Than 7 Hours Discovered

‘Super-Earth’ Planet With Orbital Period Of Less Than 7 Hours Discovered

Kepler’s K2 mission has revealed the presence of another ‘Super-Earth’ planet. The newly discovered planet, designated EPIC 246393474 b (or C12_3474 b), is 'more than' five times more massive than the Earth and orbits its parent star every 6.7 hours, making it the planet having the shortest orbital period known to date with a precisely determined mass.
