Nasa finds strange alien planet hiding outside our solar system | The Independent

Nasa has found a strange alien planet sitting outside of our solar system.The world is cool and small: two characteristics that make it a very strange thing indeed for scientists to find.The little planet known as HD 21749b is the third planet to be found by TESS, Nasa’s new planet-hunting telescope. It goes around its star on a long orbit, taking a relatively leisurely 36 days.Despite that proximity, it is quite cool at around around 300 degrees Fahrenheit.As such it could be a very important way for scientists to find out about such relatively little and temperate worlds.
