Scientists say TOI-1452b, exoplanet 100 light years from Earth, may be covered with deep ocean

A team of researchers have discovered an exoplanet about 100 light years away from Earth in the Draco constellation.

They say the world appears to be covered in a deep ocean.

The exoplanet -- called TOI-1452b -- is slightly larger than the Earth.

It is located in a "Goldilocks zone," where temperatures are neither too hot nor too cold for liquid water to exist.

Therefore, astronomers think TOI-1452b could be covered in an ocean.

University of Montreal researcher Dr. Charles Cadieux led the international team in the discovery.
