A Boiling Planet is discovered by NASA’s TESS

Our universe is a puzzle yet to be solved. Each day our researchers try to find out something new to unveil the suspense of this. As a result, new satellite launches and studies are still half way through the holism of our magnanimous universe.

A stunning discovery by NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), an MIT-led mission identified a new planet which is too hot. It is an exoplanet approximately with the size of our neighbour planet where a year lasts for about eight hours. The planet is about the size of Mars, and vast as half the size of the Earth. This attribute makes it one of the lightest planets discovered till date. This new planet is named as GJ 367 b, and it orbits its star in just eight hours. Astrophysicists predicts from the known facts that the new planet’s dayside have a temperature of up to 1,500 degrees Celsius. Under such extreme temperatures the possibility of atmosphere and existence of life is indeed not imaginable!
