Florida. Recently, a mission led by NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) discovered a strange planet that was only 16 hours long. Astronomers have named the planet TOI-2109b. Astronomers have so far discovered more than 4,000 planets outside the Solar System. Many of these planets orbit the Sun like the Earth. Although these planets are thousands of light years away from Earth.
The TOI-2109b Planet is full of gas
The new planet discovered by astronomers is a gas planet, also known as ‘Hot Jupiter’. Astronomers have not yet discovered such a planet. Over the past few years, astronomers have discovered several hot Jupiters. In fact, these planets are like Jupiter in our solar system. The peculiarity of hot Jupiter is that it orbits the Sun in less than 10 days.
Learn why the TOI-2109b Ultra Hot Jupiter
When the hot Jupiter orbits the Sun in 10 days, TOI-2109b is far ahead in this regard, so TOI-2109b calls it the Ultra Hot Jupiter because its surface temperature is 3300 C. In just 16 hours. OI-2109b is about the temperature of a small star.
TOI-2109b is the second hottest planet ever discovered
TOI-2109b is the second hottest planet ever discovered. In just 16 hours, NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) discovered the TOI-2109b orbiting the star. A report on this discovery was recently published in the Astronomical Journal. Ian Wong, the lead author of the discovery, says that in a year or two we will be able to provide information on how close the planet is to its star. However, Wong made it clear that we will not see this collide with our star in our lifetime.
