NASA Discovers New Planet 1300 Light Years Away. Fans Think BTS and Ariana Grande Found It First
NASA found a Neptune-like exoplanet and named it as TOI-1338. As per the NASA website, The planet TOI-1338 orbits an F-type star. Its mass is 33 Earths and it takes 95.2 days to complete one orbit of its star. It is 0.4607 AU from its star. Recently, someone released a few bot-generated images of TOI 1388b that took the internet by storm. They are not the real images of the planet.

In these generated images, the planet appears to have a pastel colour appearance, featuring bubblegum pink, soft purple, lavender, and light green shades. The post has garnered over 1.2 million likes and more than 224 thousand retweets!
But BTS ARMY feels that it was the K-Pop group that discovered the planet and so did Ariana Grande fans. The fans compared the bubblegum coloured new planet to the OST image of BTS song ‘Heartbeat’. The song came out in the year 2019. Ariana Grande fans cited that the singer found the planet first as the colour scheme featured in her music video ‘God Is a Woman’ which came out in 2018.
