Astronomers discovered Earth-sized planet only 72 light years away

There are many such mysteries in space about which information is difficult to find. A team of astronomers has discovered an exoplanet the size of Earth. It is being called K2-415b and it is revolving around an M dwarf star. Its distance from Earth is only 72 light years.

published in the Astronomical Journal Report The discovery was made by an international team of astronomers led by Teruyuki Hirano of the Astrobiology Center in Japan. Hirano explains, “Some small planets around the M dwarf are important for the search for rocky planets and any planet with habitable conditions. This is a planet about the same size as Earth. It will be an interesting target for further findings.” ” Astronomers discovered this planet while analyzing data from the Kepler telescope.

After studying about this exoplanet, the researchers came to know that its size is almost similar to that of the Earth. It takes only four days to make one revolution. It is likely to have an atmosphere, so it could be important for further research. The James Webb Telescope, the world’s largest telescope in space, has been giving us new information about the universe since last year. recently this telescope Discovered a planet outside the solar system. For the first time, this telescope has discovered a planet (exoplanet) outside our solar system, which is almost like Earth. The term exoplanet is used for planets that do not revolve around the Sun. This planet named LHS 475 b is similar to our Earth. Its diameter is 99 percent as much as the diameter of the Earth.

This planet was first detected by NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) and then it seemed that it could be a planet. This was confirmed after inspection from the James Webb Telescore. LHS 475 b is 41 light-years away from Earth in the constellation Octans. However, it is difficult to say how likely this planet like Earth is to have life. <!–
