NASA's TESS spacecraft finds its first Earth-sized exoplanet

This newly identified planet is the smallest world outside our solar system discovered by TESS. The spacecraft data shows that the HD21749c orbits its star every 7.8 days, which means that orbit has a tight orbit that would result in surface temperatures of up to 800 degrees Fahrenheit. TESS has now found ten planets smaller than Neptune, and his ability …
