Well-Known Planet Hunter Has Just Discovered Its First Alien World

The well-known planet hunter Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) has found its first alien world better to say “Super-Earth” in the Universe. TESS was launched on April 18, 2018 atop a Falcon 9 rocket. During its primary mission, it is expected to find more than 20,000 exoplanets, compared to approximately 3,800 exoplanets known when it launched.

We have learnt that the planets are rocky; the temperature is corresponding to the state that may be existed life there. So, to know all this fact, you will probably have a great eager to find out the mystery and in the end see them (if really they exist).

WASP 96b is Considered as the Cloudless Exoplanet

WASP-96b is the first-ever cloudless planet discovered, with its uniquely clear signature. The astronomer Nikolay Nikolov from the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom, discovered WASP-96b, using the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope in Chile. Being the first of its kind, the exoplanet is now considered “a benchmark for characterization,” Nikolov said in the statement.
