Two habitable planets discovered. The planets have a mild climate year-round.

According to the news in; NASA has also set up a division to study planets outside our galaxy. NASA’s exoplanet division continues its studies for other earth-like planets. Professor Amary Triaud, who is researching on the subject, announced that two planets with a temperate climate have been detected, together with a team of international astronomers.

It was stated that this planet pair, which is about 100 light-years away from Earth, is orbiting a star called Speculoos-2. It turned out that this star, named after the telescope, Search for Habitable Planets Eclipsing Ultra-cool Stars, has two habitable planets around it.

Researchers have previously captured one of the discovered planets by NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite.

Speculoos stepped in to make scientists believe that this celestial body is a planet.

At the end of the analysis, the researchers stated that the planet, named LP 890-9b, is about 30 percent larger than Earth and completes its orbit around its star every 2.7 days. It has been said that the planet is quite fast.

The other planet, named LP 890-9c, is a little more hidden at the moment. This previously unknown planet was determined to be about 40 percent larger than Earth after some tests and data tracking. LP 890-9c completes its orbital period in about 8.5 days.


Researchers thought both planets were habitable. Stating that the star around which the planets revolve is neither too hot nor too cold, the researchers stated that this is very important for water, which is the biggest source of life.
