The KMT-2018-BLG-0029L Exoplanetary System
KMT-2018-BLG-0029L is a star with 1.14 times the mass of the Sun, and 1.1119999999999999 times its radius. It is located 11024.07 light years away from the solar system.
KMT-2018-BLG-0029L is known to have 1 exoplanets in orbit around it.
KMT-2018-BLG-0029L b was discovered by the KMTNet observatory using the microlensing method. Its discovery was announced in 2020-02. Its semi-major axis is 4.27 astronomical units, as compared to Earth's which is 1 astronomical unit.
The mass of KMT-2018-BLG-0029L b is 7.59 times the mass of Earth. At 7.59 Earth masses, KMT-2018-BLG-0029L b is a so called Super Earth. Super Earths could be terrestrial worlds like Earth, but they could also be ocean worlds or terrestrial worlds wrapped in a substantial atmosphere, in which case some refer to them as Mini Neptunes. No Super Earths are known to exist in our solar system, but if it exists, the so-called Planet Nine could very well be a super Earth, as it is hypothesized to have a mass between five and ten Earth masses.
