A team of Montreal University researchers recently discovered a planet about 100 light-years away from Earth, which is believed to be completely covered with water. NASA has named this planet as TOI-1452 b and it can be about 70% percent bigger than Earth. At the same time it is located in the ‘Goldilocks Zone’. The temperature here is neither too hot nor too cold, due to which water is expected to be present on the surface of the planet.
A team of researchers from the University of Montreal discovered
Using observations from NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, a team of researchers from the University of Montreal announced the discovery of a ‘super-earth’. The US space agency has said that further investigation may shed light on an interesting possibility, that is, this planet could be a ‘water world’.
Let us tell you that this planet is about five times bigger than our Earth and indicates that it has a ‘deep ocean’. At the same time, it is also speculated that this planet can also be a rocky planet with an atmosphere of hydrogen and helium. TOI-1452 b The planet orbits its red-dwarf star once every 11 days.
To determine whether TOI-1452 b is a planet with the presence of water, scientists will need to use the James Webb Space Telescope. Only James Webb Telescope can reveal the truth related to this planet. This planet is being said to be the best candidate so far for the discovery of scientists.
