New Planets: With the help of US space agency NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, scientists have discovered four new planets. From which information about the early times of the earth can be found.
Scientists Discovered New Planets – Symbolic Picture
New Discovered Planets: Scientists have discovered four new planets, which are 130 light-years away from Earth. These planets are in their teenage years, which will help to find out how Earth’s early years were. The names of these four planets are TOI 2076 b, TOI 2076 c, TOI 2076 d and TOI 1807 B. At the same time, the names of their orbit stars are TOI 2076 and TOI 1807. These new planets are bigger than Earth in size. Their size is up to two or four times as big.
The lead author of the study, Christina Hedges, said that the planets are in their early stages. Christina is an astronomer at the Bay Area Environment Research Institute and NASA Ames Research Center (What is the Earliest Life on Earth). “The planets in both the systems are in transitional or teenage state,” he said in a statement. These are not newly formed planets but are not very old either. By studying about them, we will be able to get more information about the old planets of other systems.
How big are these planets from Earth?
The planets have been discovered by NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). The two stars found are K-type dwarf stars. They are more orange in color than the Sun and are between 3,500 and 5,000 Kelvin (How Was Early Earth Different From Today). TOI 2076 The innermost planet in the star system TOI 2076 b is about three times the size of Earth and orbits TOI 2076 every 10 days. In contrast TOI 2076 c and TOI 2076 d have orbits longer than 17 days and both planets are also four times the size of Earth.
400 times more light
On the other hand, TOI 1807 b is almost twice the size of Earth and orbits its star in 13 hours. TOI 2076 and TOI 1807 both have flares, which are more energetic than our Sun (Early Days of Earth). This can help researchers to know about the early days of the solar system. Researchers say that TOI 2076 b receives 400 times more UV light from its star than Earth and TOI 1807 b gets 22,000 times more. This study has been published in the Astronomical Journal.
