NASA scientists were able to determine the temperature prevailing on the surface of the exo-planets 55 Cancri-E. Unfortunately, rather certainly will not find its traces of life.
55 Cancri-E orbits its parent star at the time only 18 hours. It is not difficult to guess that the nights are very hot or even hotter. It has been estimated that the temperature on the surface of more than 2400 degrees Celsius. Conditions are truly a hell leaving small room to imagine any life form existence.
However, for more information on this very interesting world manage to get just a few years, when work will begin the James Webb Space Telescope, successor to the Porsche contribution into Hubble Project.
