The teenager who found a planet

A teenage intern at Nasa has found a new planet after just three days there. It was on his first assignment to examine variations in star brightness captured by Nasa's Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite that 17-year-old Wolf Cukier discovered the planet which is 6.9 times larger than Earth. Wolf Cukier told us about his discovery.
