Shrinking planets could explain mystery of universe's missing worlds

Flatiron Institute researchers have made a breakthrough in accounting for the mysterious lack of exoplanets roughly double Earth's radius -- an enigma called the radius gap. Using data from the Kepler spacecraft, the researchers found that the sizes of the 'missing planets' depends on the ages of the planetary systems. Specifically, the researchers propose that gas-shrouded exoplanets shrink drastically over billions of years, leaping over the radius gap to become relatively smaller rocky super-...
