Molten Iron Rain on an Exoplanet

In A Trekzone Conversation

Across Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays (with the occasional Saturday) we’re diving into the Talkin’ Science Stories of the Week.

Today, Dr Brad Tucker and Matt discuss a newly discovered exoplanet that’s not only tidally locked to it’s star (so one side always faces it) but contains iron in the atmosphere on the darkside, and molten iron rain on the hot side!
