ISRO Discovered a Bigger Planet than Jupiter

ISRO has discovered a planet bigger than Jupiter in space. This planet orbits a star outside the solar system.  There may be a change in the chapter on the solar system in schools for children. Maybe soon, when it comes to the largest planet in the solar system, children will be told the name of another planet instead of Jupiter. Actually, ISRO has discovered a planet bigger than Jupiter in space. At present, there is no information regarding whether it will be included in the solar system or not.

 

Let us tell you that a study group from Ahmedabad-based Physical Research Laboratory has discovered a planet bigger than Jupiter orbiting a star outside the solar system. Indian Space Research Organization i.e. ISRO has shared this information. In the information received so far, it has been found that this planet orbits a star outside the solar system. Giving this information, ISRO issued a statement saying that the discovery was made using the PRL Advanced Radial-Velocity Abu-Sky Search Optical Fiber-fed Spectograph mounted on PRL’s 1.2 meter telescope at Mount Abu Observatory.

 

It was said that this planet is located 725 light years away outside the solar system. At the same time, the mass of this planet is 1.4 times that of Jupiter.
