NASA Planet Hunters Found Earth Sized Planet having Habitable Environment and Water

NASA scientists have been successful. Scientists have discovered the first planet Earth-sized habitable environment, where liquid water is present. The best part of it is that this planet is close to our solar system.

The NASA TESS wing, which has discovered the planets, has discovered this Earth-sized planet. NASA announced this during the 235th edition of the American Astronomical Society meeting in Honolulu. NASA said that the planet is orbiting a star TOI 700, which is not more than 100 light years away from us.

This planet is one of the three planets orbiting the star and is also at an ideal distance from its star to hold the ability of water on the surface. With the help of the Spitzer Space Telescope of the Space Research Organization, astronomers have ensured the planet's potential.

Scientists have named this planet 'TOI 700 d'. This planet is orbiting the outer orbit of its star compared to the other two planets. It is neither too far nor too close. The planet is at a distance where water can exist in fluid conditions. One of the other two planets that is closest to the star is rocky and the other planet is in gaseous state.

According to NASA, it is 20 percent larger than the Earth and revolves around its star in 37 days. This planet gets 86 percent energy from its star compared to the energy the Earth receives from the sun. So far it is not known what this planet is made of. Researchers are currently preparing models about the atmosphere and surface temperature and texture of DE.
