Serious kudos and praise to Wolf, a year old intern at NASA, who discovered a planet. He studied some data pertaining to a binary star system and determined that additional information indicated something more than just two stars. After being double checked and more, Wolf has co-authored a scientific paper of this discovery with some other NASA nerds. I imagine that someone in Human Resources will be hiring this intern quickly.

NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite has found its first circumbinary planet, a world orbiting two stars. Called TOI 1338 b, the planet lies 1,300 light-years away and is 6.9 times larger than Earth.
