The planets, which were discovered around a star called K2-239, are incredibly close to Earth in overall size, with radii measuring between 1.0 and 1.1 times that of our own planet. It is closer to Neptune, he added.
The first exoplanetary system is located about 160 light years from Earth.
The gravitational pull caused by a planet on its host star makes it wobble around their common center of mass, which can be measured using high resolution spectrographs such as the PARAS.
NASA's Kepler satellite, which was launched in 2009 as part of the K2 mission, has uncovered three Earth-sized planets in another solar system. The mass and the radius of the planet help to suggest that 60%-70% of the total mass consists of ice, silicates, and iron contents. This is the first of its kind spectrograph in the country, which can measure the mass of a planet going around a star. "Very few such spectrographs exist around the world (mostly in the US and in Europe) that can do such precise measurements", the official statement said. This is what they have so far discovered. The scientists have used a PARAS spectrograph for calculating the mass of the planet.
The planets are a close match to Earth in size, but they're positioned much, much closer to their star than Earth is to the Sun.
Though unique in its own way, this "epic" planet is one of 22 other confirmed exoplanet systems with the same dimensions.
