The team was led by Abhijit Chakraborty from the Physical Research Laboratory (PRL), Ahmedabad. Even more, the scientists calculated that the planet completes a full orbit around its star in only about 20 Earth days. The surface temperature of the new planet is around 600°C as it is very close to the host star.This might make it uninhabitable, but such a discovery is of importance for understanding the formation mechanism of such super-Neptune or sub-Saturn kind of planets that are too close to the host star.
The exoplanet is reported to be smaller than Saturn but bigger than Neptune.
EPIC 211945201b's mass is around 27 times that of Earth's and it's estimated to be around six times greater in radius.
Otherwise, the planets are probably inhospitable: they are very close to their star and therefore very warm.
The researchers discovered that one system was 160 light years away from the sun; it presumably comprises at least three rocky planets, with their radii approximating that of Earth, and their mass equaling 1.4, 0.9, and 1.3 of Earth's mass, respectively.
The Indian team from the PRL employed their "PRL Advance Radial-velocity Abu-sky Search" (PARAS) spectrograph with which they measured the mass of the new exoplanet. The host star is named EPIC 211945201 or K2-236. These type of spectrographs exist mostly in the US and in the Europe that can do such precise measurements.
The scientists observed the target over a time 420 days or about 1.5 years.
Importantly, this discovery could help scientists understand how these types of planets form so close to their host star. It is expected to be launched in 2020.
The first exoplanet was discovered in the early 1990s.
According to Phys.org, the important discovery of these new planetary systems was made possible by the K2 mission that was undertaken with the use of NASA's Kepler satellite, with work that began in earnest in November, 2013. Significantly, the discovery was made using a PRL-designed spectrograph, PARAS, to measure and confirm the mass of the new planet.

The game will feature updated visuals, refined gameplay, and support for 16:9 4K in this incredibly hard-to-forget journey. The trailer for the game, revealed at Devolver's frankly mad E3 conference, doesn't make a lot of sense, if I'm honest.
We did the exact opposite. "It was a momentum game based on possession". "They (South Africa fans) have always got plenty to say. England suffered a fourth straight test loss and fifth overall. "There is no reason we can't turn it round, no reason at all".
Italy's new interior minister has refused to let 600 migrants disembark in Italy, leaving rescue ship in limbo in Mediterranean. That stance "confirms the latest unwillingness of Malta and, thus, of Europe, to intervene and take care of the emergency".
