The researchers spotted a Jupiter-like planet, 39 times more massive than the Earth, orbiting around a distant star with temperature lower than the Sun; the planet is located around 730 light years away from Earth.
This is the first ever planetary core to be found by the astronomers.
The study was made by the team led by Dr David Armstrong from the University of Warwick’s Department of Physics.
TOI-849b was found in a survey of stars by NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS).
This planet will enable the researchers to get a better understanding about the gas planets like Jupiter.
The atmosphere around the solid cores of the planets consist of Hydrogen(H) and Helium(He).
