Astronomers discover a multiplanet system nearby

astronomers have found that it hosts at least two terrestrial, Earth-sized planets. 

 scientists are excited about this system because the proximity and brightness of its star will give them a closer look at the properties of the planets 

The new planetary system was initially identified by NASA's Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite

The process of classifying and subsequently confirming new planets can often take several years.

HD 260655 was also listed as part of another independent survey by CARMENES

"Every planet orbiting a star is going to have a little gravitational pull on its star

The researchers also estimate, based on their short orbits, that the surface of the inner planet is a roasting 710 kelvins
