A teenage intern on his third day helping out at a Nasa program to find worlds beyond our solar system has discovered a previously unknown planet with two stars 1, light years from Earth away in the constellation Pictor, the agency has announced. Assigned to study how two stars would cross paths creating an eclipse, he focused on the solar system TOI , where he noticed something in the orbit of two stars that was blocking the light. His bosses spent several weeks verifying his observation, and ultimately concluded that Cukier had discovered a planet 6. At first I thought it was a stellar eclipse, but the timing was wrong. It turned out to be a planet.
