Scientists discover new Saturn like planet 60 times bigger than Earth
Astronomers have discovered a new exoplanet using NASA’s exoplanet-hunting space telescope, TESS. The exoplanet is said to be 60 times bigger than our planet and is five-billion-year-old planet. The exoplanet is dubbed TOI-197.0 or “hot Saturn” because of its size and hot temperature. The researchers at Aarhus University, say that this is “one of the best-described exoplanets of this type to date.” Scientists are gaining valuable insights into other solar systems by studying the data sent by TESS.
