Announcements made by the US Space Agency (NASA), according to which they were detected water vapor in its atmosphere exoplanet TOI-674b, which is about 150 light-years from Earth in the constellation of Pump. He is one from the few exoplanets where water in the form of water vapor has been detected until today.

The planet, which is considered relatively close to Earth, was discovered and studied by the American space telescopes Hubble, TESS and Spitzer, according to the APE-MPE. Is slightly larger than Poseidon and moves around a relatively cold red dwarf star, less than half the size of the Sun. The exoplanet is needed less than two days (the duration of his year) for a complete orbit around his star.

It remains unclear how much water vapor is in its atmosphere, something that scientists will try to investigate with further observations, including A newly launched new James Webb space telescope and will “get a job” this year.
