An Earth-Like Planet That  Discovered by Nasa

Rains Lava Has Been

Nasa has discovered

an Earth-like planet thought to be covered in oceans of lava.

Nasa's renowned James Webb Telescope

 is expected to give scientists a closer look at 55 Cancri e, a lava-covered planet

"Planets that orbit

this close to their star are assumed to be tidally locked,"

If the planet is not

 tidally locked, the space agency suspects that "the surface would heat up, melt

and even vaporize during

 the day, forming a very thin atmosphere that Webb could detect.

In the evening, the vapor

would cool and condense to form droplets of lava that would rain back to the surface
