Blue Exoplanet Is Not Like Earth At All

USA Today :

Data from the Hubble Space Telescope has helped determine that a planet orbiting a nearby star likely shares Earth’s deep-blue tones, but the similarities stop there, astronomers report.

It’s a Jupiter-sized planet 372 trillion miles away, and it’s likely colored blue because of an atmosphere full of melting glass particles.

The fact that we’re able to observe this sort of thing is pretty amazing. It’s too bad we seem to have no time or money for the good things we have learned to do.
