Massive Exoplanet Found by Scientists, A Hulk Among Super-Earths

Astronomers have discovered a gigantic exoplanet just 200 light years away from Earth . The celestial object, -1075b, has a 1.8-time radius than Earth .

According to a study in the journal Astronomy, astronomers have discovered a gigantic exoplanet just 200 light years away from Earth.According to the article, the celestial object, which is named -1075b, has a 1.8-time radius than Earth.An exoplanet is a planet that lies outside the solar system.The large super-Earth was uncovered by the US space agency NASAs Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) spacecraft.

New evidence suggests that -1075 b is one of the most massive super-Earths ever discovered, according to NASA officials.According to studies, super-Earths the size of -1075 billion are likely to have a very thick atmosphere of hydrogen and helium due to the exoplanets' proximity to its parent star, a small, red-orange star.However, NASA further stated that this planet's dense composition and a scorchingly tight orbit makes such a state of affairs impossible.It said that the finding makes -1075 b one of only a handful of other planets so far with precise enough measurements of size and mass to help scientists fine-tune their planet formation models.
