The first exoplanet discovered by the TESS mission was announced in the 235th meeting of American Astronomical Society, and it is called TOI 700 d. This newly discovered planet is a part of the Dorado constellation and found orbiting around its star TOI 700. NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope infrared abilities help astronomers prove the discoveries with corresponding observations. In the initial result, the star was misidentified by the reason that the three planets orbiting were too near and hot to be habitable. However, a high school student, Alton Spencer, working with the TESS team, attests that it was an error.

Along with it, a planet with two suns known as TOI 1338 b has been detected by the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). The TOI 1338 b orbits around the zone where the liquid form is present at the surface and is 1,300 light-years away from the Pictor constellation. Also, the planet TOI 1338 b has the size of Neptune and Saturn in between with two eclipsing star systems that bring forth its resemblance to Luke Skywalker’s home, the Star Wars’ Tatooine. “I was looking through the data for everything the volunteers had flagged as an eclipsing binary, a system where two stars circle around each other and from our view eclipse each other every orbit. About three days into my internship, I saw a signal from a system called TOI 1338. At first, I thought it was a stellar eclipse, but the timing was wrong. It turned out to be a planet.” – according to Wolf Cukier, the intern at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
