17-year-old helps NASA find planet in habitable zone

Just three days into his internship, little did 17-year-old Wolf Cukier realise that he is going to make history — in helping NASA discover its first Earth-size planet resting in its star’s habitable-zone — the way our Earth rests in its Goldilocks zone. In 2019, when Cukier finished his junior year at School  , he joined NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, as a summer intern.
