NASA Discovers 3 New Planets; 1 potentially inhabited "Super Earth"




NASA's Transit Planet Exile Satellite (TESS) has discovered three new planets, all of which orbit the same star.

The star which orbit is smaller and cooler than the sun.

2 of the planets are thought to be similar to Neptune at 260 degrees Fahrenheit, but one is considered to be potentially habitable.

It is currently called GJ 357 d and is also called Super Earth.

"This is exciting, as it is the first humanity's near superpower to harbor life ̵

1; discovered with the help of TESS, our small, powerful mission with enormous reach," said Lisa Kalteneger of Cornell, associate professor of astronomy, Carl Sagan Institute director at Cornell and a member of the TESS research team.

That's about 31 light-years away.

And much hotter than earth, about 150 degrees Fahrenheit.

"If GJ 357 d showed signs of life, it would be at the top of everyone's travel list – and we could answer the 1000-year question of whether we are alone in space," Kaltenegger said.
