'This Planet Tastes Funny,' According to Spitzer - 2 views

  •  
    Spectra of the atmosphere of the planet GJ436b in the constellation Loe show evidence for carbon monoxide. Theoretical studies using numerical models however predicted that this planet's carbon inventory should be stored in the form of methane rather than CO as its temperature is estimated to be 800K. Where this inaccuracy of atmospheric models comes from is not known and has to be investigated further.
