Tess telescope detects two new planets

This artist's impression shows a view of the triple-star system HD 131399 from close to the giant planet orbiting in the system. The planet is known as HD 131399Ab and appears at the lower-left of the picture. Located about 320 light-years from Earth in the constellation of Centaurus (The Centaur), HD 131399Ab is about 16 million years old, making it also one of the youngest exoplanets discovered to date, and one of very few directly imaged planets. With a temperature of around 580 degrees Celsius and an estimated mass of four Jupiter masses, it is also one of the coldest and least massive directly-imaged exoplanets.

UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) – A five-month-old orbital observation telescope and probes of the worlds behind our solar system this week discovered two distant planets, five months after it was launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

The manufacture of the satellite survey cross-border “Tess” and the Department of Aeronautics and Space Administration ( NASA ) this early discovery of finding planets “super-Earth”, and “Hot-Earth” in the solar systems at a distance of not less than 49 light – years away, in the first His discovery since it was launched in April.

The task of the Tess satellite is to expand the list of astronomers known to astronomers, which revolves around distant stars for two years, costing $ 337 million.

While the planet’s heat is too high for life, she expects more and more of these discoveries, said Sarah Seger, WFP’s deputy director of science.

The “Tess” satellite was designed to continue the work of its predecessor Kepler, which discovered the largest number of about 3,700 outer planets documented during the last 20 years, whose fuel is running out.

NASA expects to accurately identify thousands of worlds that have remained unknown, perhaps hundreds of them the size of the planet or the size of what is known as the giant Earth, which is no more than twice the size of the planet.

These planets are thought to have rocky roofs or oceans, and are therefore the best candidate for life.

Scientists say they hope Tess will eventually help draw up a list of at least 100 out-of-the-way rocky planets for further study as it becomes one of the most modern exploration fields for astronomers.

With four cameras, the Tes telescope uses a monitoring method called “transit photovoltaic”, which monitors periodic interruptions in the visible lights of stars, which occur as a result of the passage of planets in front of them.
