Discovery of the first water-covered planet outside the solar system
First water-covered planet discovered outside the solar system. Researchers from the University of Montreal in Canada found this planet. Named TOI-1452, this planet orbits two stars. The planet is 100 light years away from Earth.
Scientists say that the climate, nature and environment of this newly discovered planet are similar to Earth. But the amount of water there is more than the world. BBC news.
Charles Cadieux, a PhD student in the Department of Astrophysics at the University of Montreal, said that it is not yet certain whether the planet orbiting TOI-1452 has an ocean. But it is more likely to happen.
He also said that the density of this planet is very low in terms of radius and mass. Like Earth in general, metals and rocks can be found in it.
The team of researchers hopes that the James Webb Space Telescope will be able to shed more light on this and open up new horizons in science.
