What determines a planet to be a “Super Earth”? A mostly rocky planet with a relatively shallow atmosphere? This one is 12.9 times as massive as Earth, and has an “equilibrium temperature” of 293 deg. F. Balmy, say I!
I suppose that environment is, at least, pretty rough on the Coronavirus.
Boiled down, a super Earth is an exoplanet that is between the Earth (and actually smaller than than Earth, I’m guessin’) but smaller than the Uranian-Neptunian “ice giants”. Oh, and it has to wear the cape.
whoops, that should be "...an exoplanet that is between..."
