Wolf Cukier


During summer 2019, crazy Cukier decided to travel down to Greenbelt Maryland to join an internship program. As far he was so crazy, he opted for NASA's Goddard Space Center for this internship.

The first assignment for him was, to examine the variations in star brightness captured by NASA's Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, known as TESS. It is a part of the Planet Hunter TESS citizen science project. This project offers scope for any civilian to help NASA to discover new planets.

Mr. Cukier has shown his magic there in just three days of his internship. He discovered a new planet. Yeah, it's true and I am so sound and clear in all my senses to read and write this story for you.
