The international group of scientists has found the exoplanet with the high content of iron in the atmosphere. The gas giant KELT-9b because of the proximity to a parental star has extremely high temperature which allows to evaporate metal. The Science Alert edition reports about it. It is known that temperature of KELT-9b which is removed from Earth on 620 light years reaches 4300 degrees Celsius (temperature of a surface of the Sun reaches about 6000 degrees Celsius). The planet does a turn around a parental star of HD 195689 less than in 36 hours that is caused by small distance between two objects. It is known that the atmosphere of KELT-9b consists, generally from hydrogen. According to astronomers, high temperature of the planet not only promotes evaporation of metals, but also interferes with their condensation.
