Just 34 hours to become a year! WD 1856 + 534

How long does it take to be a year on earth; Not 365 days, but on the planet WD 1856b, discovered by American scientists, it takes 34 hours, or 10 hours a day a year, that is, if anyone lives there, they have a birthday every day. How many birthday cakes will they have to buy?

Not only this. The planet revolves around a white dwarf star. You know that our earth revolves around the sun. The diameter of the Sun is 109 times the diameter of the Earth. But in the case of this planet, the opposite is true.

The planet is ten times larger than the white dwarf star. Therefore, in 10 days a day on Earth, the planet orbits the star once. Remember that it takes 365 days for the earth to orbit the sun.

It is located 80 light-years from Earth in the constellation Draco. It would take 80 years for light to leave this planet and reach Earth. That’s it. It was discovered by a South American country using a powerful telescope in the Atacama Desert in Chile.
