Gliese 436 We discovered the first Neptune-size planet, Gliese 436 b, in 2004. We were delighted to find a planet of minimum mass 22 times that of Earth. At the time, this seemed to be an incredibly small planet. I personally spent two years developing the statistic basis for securing this discovery


Frost and Fire - Gliese 436 b (Exoplanet) - In the constellation of Leo 33.1 light years away, a Neptune-sized planet orbits a red dwarf star at a distance of 4.3 million kilometres—15 times closer than Mercury is to our sun. It’s no surprise that the planet, Gliese 436 b, has an incredibly hot surface temperature of 439 degrees Celsius, but it’s definitely a surprise that the planet is also covered in ice. Since the boiling point of water is 100 degrees Celsuis,
