Icy Exoplanets


Too cool. Large, icy rock planet around a red dwarf star, which is the stellar type most prevalent in the galaxy. Planets and systems of this type may be far more common than was once thought. Our own system, with its gas giant planets, is apparently not a common one -- but we knew that already since we're here and aren't hearing anything from anyone else in the nieghborhood.
