There’s no such thing as a ‘habitable Super-Earth’
Ethan Siegel

So these rocky super earths may not even be composed in a terran type accretion? Is it possible that they could be a burned out core of a Neptonian or Jovian planet that failed to keep its hydrogen / helium atmosphere? Could that explain the distribution of planetaery mass /size demographics better than questioning “why our solar system doesn’t have a super earth?” that is tainted by our Sol perspective bias?

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
