Astronomers discover a pitch black planet that reflects nearly zero sunlight

Taylor Bell, lead researcher of the study says , "This new Hubble research further demonstrates the vast diversity among the odd population of hot Jupiters". The new Hubble data indicate that the exoplanet's atmosphere is composed of atomic hydrogen and helium. "This is in contrast to the Bond albedo , which describes the total amount of energy reflected across all wavelengths and always falls in the range of 0 to 1", the researchers explained.
