Illustration of the planet 55 Cancri e,also called Janssen.This is an exoplanet orbiting 55 Cancri A.Its mass is thought to be around 8.6 Earth masses,making it a so-called 'Super-Earth'.The planet orbits its star so closely that it completes an orbit in less than 18 hours.Its proximity to its star - only 0.015 astronomical units,or 1 20th of the Mercury-Sun separation - means that the planet is exceptionally hot and likely volcanic,as this depiction shows.
