NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) has discovered a super-Earth exoplanet in the habitable zone of its star, making it a potential candidate for hosting life. The exoplanet, named TOI-700 d, is about 100 light-years away and has a radius about 20% larger than Earth’s. It receives about 86% of the energy that Earth receives from the Sun, making it a promising target for further study in the search for extraterrestrial life.
