You know how everyone says that the biggest learning from an internship is the exposure it provides? Well, looks like one intern found a better reward – a space discovery credited to him for eternity!

Wolf Cukier, a 17-year-old high school student, is an intern at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Centre. And, using NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Sattelite (TESS), he discovered a new planet that orbits around two suns.

Reportedly, Cukier made the discovery after just three days into his internship. The newly identified planet is a part of the Pictor constellation, has been christened as TOI 1388b and orbits two stars, one of which is bigger than our Sun by 15%.

The planet, which is 6.9 times larger than Earth, is only the 13th of its kind discovered so far. Talk about being a model employee!
