NASA A transiting satellite for exoplanet exploration, a planet-seeking satellite that launched a SpaceX rocket last April 9, discovered three new worlds orbiting a nearby dwarf star. and smaller and cooler than our own Sun.
The newly discovered planets vary in size and temperature, but they are all larger than Earth and at a higher average rate – calculated only on the basis of their distance from the star they orbit and their energy, without factoring in any be atmospheric effects since it is not yet known if they have any atmosphere at all. At the bottom, there is a TOI of 270 d, which has an average tempo of 1
Both TOI 270 d, farthest from the central star of its own system, and TOI 270 c, its closest neighbor, are considered to be essentially gaseous and most closely resemble Neptune in our own solar system. They are not actually equivalent because they are much smaller, and NASA researchers say that they are actually more likely to be new species of planets that have not been observed anywhere in our own local solar court.
Planets in general are of interest to researchers because they are all between 1.5 and just over 2 times the size of Earth, which is actually an unusual size for planets when considered as whole. The TOI 270 system is also quite ideally positioned for study by the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope, so it provides a great opportunity for future exploration once the Space Observatory is up and running in 2021
