A new milestone in the space world by researchers is the discovery of the alien world. The discovery of Wolf 503b as new alien planet is really exciting. Wolf 503b is double in size of planet Earth. This cosmic neighbor planet is present at a distance of 145 light years in the patch of sky from where Virgo is visible. The climatic conditions and the surface of this planet are unknown so far.
NASA’s Kepler telescope was used by the student of master’s degree Merrin Peterson with some other scientist from America, Canada and Germany. Through this Kepler telescope they study planet Wolf 503b in May 2018. Peterson with her advisor Bjorn Benneke drives a sequence to get some interesting facts about exoplanet candidates. Exoplanets are actually those which can host Alien life possibly. He was studying in the University of Montreal at the institute for research on exoplanets (iREx).
