There are different types of planets in our solar system. There is also another solar system in the universe in which strange planets are present. One of these looks like a ‘potato’. Some scientists are also describing this planet as a rugby ball. The name of this planet is WASP-103b which is present in the Hercules constellation. It also has a star named WASP-103. This potato-like planet is hotter and bigger than our Sun.

This planet takes less than a day to orbit its star. The European Space Agency said on Tuesday, ‘This is the first time that a planet with a distorted shape has been identified. This has given new information about the internal structure of such planets. The team of scientists has given this information about WASP-103b based on new data from the agency’s Cheops space telescope, NASA’s Hubble and Spitzer telescopes.

twice as large as Jupiter
Scientists have also published a paper in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics. This planet is twice the size of Jupiter and its internal structure is also filled with gas like Jupiter. Researchers were able to know from the Cheops telescope that the size of this planet is like a potato. Scientists said that it is filled with much more gas than Jupiter. This is probably happening because of the heating of its star too much.

Astronomer and lead research author Susannah Burroughs says, “If we can confirm the internal structure of the planet in future assessments, then it will be possible to know how it became so full of gas.” He said that by getting information about the size of the core of this planet, it will be known that it is very gaseous. The planet’s gaseousness isn’t the only mystery.

Stars eat up their planets over time
This planet is moving away from its star, whereas we expect it to move closer to its star over time. Scientists say that more analysis is needed to find out, but it is trying to avoid being finished like other planets. Stars eat away at their planets over time.
