Water World 🏖

Water World

NASA has discovered a planet that is 70% larger than earth and is completely covered by water. This planet, which is called TOI-1452, is 100 light years away and astronomers are describing it to be “fairly close.” So far, scientists think that this water planet could potentially support life and since the planet is larger, it is assumed to have very deep oceans. NASA also says the planet could be an enormous rock with little atmosphere, or it is made up of hydrogen and helium. The planet actually orbits around the sun so fast that a year lasts only 11 days.

The host star of the planet is smaller than our sun but has two stars of similar size in their orbital system. Due to the distance of the star, the temperature is neither too hot nor too cold for water to exist. The international team of researchers was led by Charles Cadieaux, a PhD student at the University of Montreal and a member of the Institute for Research on Exoplanets. He describes using the OMM, a telescope with a camera attached to it, as playing a crucial role in confirming the size of the planet. That, in addition to other telescopes called the TESS and PESTO’S, helped with different factors such as light and resolution to differentiate the objects from each other. The findings of the planet were confirmed by a Japanese team but more research still needs to be done.
