This kid better get an “A.” A 17 year old high school intern has helped NASA’s planet hunter satellite TESS discover an exoplanet orbiting two stars instead of one. It’s been named TOI 1338 b and it is 6.9 times larger than Earth, almost the size of Saturn. The boy who discovered it is Wolf Cukier who was 3 days into his NASA internship. He said 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.”
