100 light-years from Earth, scientists uncover ocean planet
An 'ocean planet' resembles Kevin Costner's 1995 post-apocalyptic action flick Waterworld. The 100-light-year-away planet is covered in water, like Jupiter's and Saturn's moons.
It's larger and heavier than Earth and distant enough from its star to host life.An multinational team of researchers identified the exoplanet TOI-1452 b in the Draco constellation.
NASA's 'planet hunter' spacecraft has four cameras that can see 85% of the sky as it hunts for exoplanets fewer than 300 light-years distant.
By investigating brighter objects than Kepler, TESS may find fresh signs of alien life.Four wide-field cameras will examine 26 sky segments individually.
The observatory measures 4 feet wide (1.2 metres) without the folded solar wings and weighs 800 pounds (362 kilograms).NASA claims it's between a refrigerator and a washer-dryer stack.
NASA's TESS telescope, which searches for nearby planetary systems, led astronomers discover the exoplanet. Click Here KFCs Chicken Sandwich Collaboration
