The name of the largest planet found outside the Solar System is HIP 65426 b. Is placed
An exoplanet is about 12 times the mass of Jupiter
It is 15 to 20 million years older than the Earth 4.5 billion years old
Washington. The Webb Telescope of the US space agency National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has achieved great success. The Webb Telescope has detected and photographed a planet larger than Jupiter outside the Solar System. Photos of this exoplanet have also been taken and sent to Earth. Exoplanets are planets that orbit the Sun or other stars outside the Solar System. These pictures are being seen all over the world.
According to the information, the world’s most powerful spacecraft saw this newly discovered planet in four different light filters. The material of the newly discovered planet is about 12 times the mass of Jupiter. It is a gaseous planet and rocks are not found here. There is no life on this planet. NASA has said that the new planet has been named HIP 65426 b. For the first time its direct pictures could be taken. However, the number of exoplanets over 5000 is incorrect.
Find out more about exoplanets than ever before
Releasing images of the newly discovered exoplanets, NASA said the spacecraft’s capabilities will reveal more information about exoplanets than ever before. It can easily see planets away from the solar system and can provide information about the path of future observations. These images are expected separately from the Webb telescope. The web has started sending these new pictures from the 12th of last month. It was launched on 25 December last year. It is jointly operated by NASA, the European Space Agency, the Canadian Space Agency and the Space Telescope Science Institute.
There is no rock, there is no rock:
NASA has said that there is only one information about the new planet that it is a huge reservoir of gas, that is, there is no rocky surface on it. It can’t be impossible to live here. Dubbed HIP 65426 b, this planet has a mass of about 12 times the mass of Jupiter and is about 15 to 20 million years older than our 4.5 billion year old Earth. The planet was first observed in 2017 using the SPHERE instrument on the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope in Chile.
