A video introducing a recently published paper on possibility of inversions in atmospheres of hot super-Earths. Abstract: We show that in extremely irradiated atmospheres of hot super-Earths shortwave absorption of CN can cause strong temperature inversions. We base this study on previous observations of 55 Cancri e, which lead us to ...
