Discovery of a new exoplanet, one hemisphere of which is probably molten

Scientists have discovered a new planet that is roughly the size of Earth, has a completely burning hemisphere, and is 73 light-years away. NASA’s Transiting Extrasolar Survey Satellite (TESS) has discovered a new planet that’s about the size of Earth, but only one-tenth the age of our planet, and half of its surface is likely covered by burning molten material.According to available reports, this exoplanet orbits a sun-like star named HD 63433, which is 73 light-years away from Earth. Another noteworthy point is that this planet named HD 63433 d rotates in a time equivalent to 4.2 Earth days.
