#2023. W 27 D 4 GMT +08:00. Indicate #178 days to go in 2023. Thanks to James Webb Space Telescope, scientists can now examine silicate clouds in the atmosphere of the exoplanet VHS-1256b, which is located at a distance of 40 light years. Scientists discovered water, methane, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and other molecules that are ever identified simultaneously on a planet outside the solar system. In support, Beth Biller from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland ever mentioned,” Small silicate granules in the atmosphere most likely look like tiny particles of smoke.” Due to the low gravity, the silicate clouds of the exoplanet VHS-1256b are high enough above the surface. This allows scientists to observe it directly without using the transit method or chronograph.
