Big Hit Webb Telescope, Planet Bigger Than Jupiter Found Outside Solar System, Images Have Surfaced



Strong points

A large planet found outside the solar system named HIP 65426 b
The exoplanet is about 12 times the mass of the planet Jupiter
It is 15 to 20 million years older than Earth at 4.5 billion years old

Washington. The Webb telescope of the American space organization National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is a great success. The Webb Telescope has detected and photographed a planet larger than Jupiter outside the solar system. Photos of this exoplanet were also taken and sent to Earth. Exoplanets are planets that orbit the Sun or any other star outside the solar system. These images are seen all over the world.

It was said in the news that the most powerful spacecraft in the world observed this newly detected planet in four different light filters. The mass of the newly discovered planet is about 12 times the mass of Jupiter. It is a gaseous planet and the rock was not found here. There is no life on this planet. NASA said the new planet has been named HIP 65426 b. For the first time, direct photos were taken of it. Although the number of exoplanets has exceeded 5000.

Learn more about exoplanets than ever before

Posting a photo of the newly discovered exoplanet, NASA said the spacecraft’s capability will reveal more information about the exoplanet than ever before. It can easily see the distant planets of the solar system and gives information on the path of future observations. Different images are expected from the Webb Telescope. The web started sending new photos from the 12th of last month. It was launched on December 25. It is jointly operated by NASA, the European Space Agency, the Canadian Space Agency and the Space Telescope Science Institute.

The new planet is filled with gas, not rocks
NASA said the only information about the new planet is 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, the planet is about 12 times the mass of Jupiter and about 15-20 million years older than our 4.5 billion-year-old Earth. The planet was first observed in 2017 using the SPHERE instrument of the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope in Chile.
