Astronomers have discovered the first exoplanet completely devoid of clouds, according to a paper published on Monday in Nature. WASP-96b described as a “hot Saturn” for its toasty temperature of 1,300 Kelvin (1,027 degrees Celcius or 1,880 degrees Fahrenheit) and a similar mass to Saturn, is located about 980 light years away …
Hmm. Gas giant sized but with no clouds.....
And therefor with the potential for maximal learning.
Lots of learning, yes. But this object is clearly different (heh, pun intended) from others we know, so while it might give us a lot of data, that information may not be relevant to other gas giants.
