NASA discovers Earth-sized planet

The area where the discovery occurred was identified as habitable.

The planet is called “TOI 700 d” and is relatively close to Earth, a hundred light-years away, the US space agency said.
The discovery belonged to the TESS satellite, “designed and launched specifically to find Earth-sized planets and orbiting nearby stars”, said Paul Hertz who is the director of NASA’s astrophysics division.
