Boy and a planet - level 1
This news is about a teenager. He is from Great Britain. He is fifteen years old. He helps at a university. He studies data.
This data is from cameras. These cameras pick up light. The light comes from distant stars. Sometimes, a planet is in front of the stars. When there’s a planet, the light changes.
The boy sees this in the data. He finds a planet like this. Experts say that he is right. His planet is 1,000 light years away. It does not have a name yet.
The boy plans to study physics.
Difficult words: data (information), pick up (to catch; to know when there is or isn’t light), distant (very far away).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
