A stunning new discovery some wild 280 light years from earth has scientists astounded and eagle-eyed space lovers curious. According to reports, scientists and researchers have discovered TOI-561b aka earth ‘s near-like twin that has surprisingly the same density as the planet in which we live on.
This is unusual because most of the exoplanets found in recent years either have drastically smaller or far larger density levels.
“TOI-561b is one of the oldest rocky planets yet discovered,” University of Hawaii postdoctoral fellow and team lead Lauren Weiss said in the statement according to Travel & Leisure. It’s existence shows that the universe has been forming rocky planets almost since its inception 14 billion years ago.”
