Discoverer of a new planet.
Tom Wagg, 17, made a discovery that was out of this world; literally! He discovered a new planet about 1,000 light years away orbiting a star in our galaxy. While studying at Keele Univeristy in Britain, for only a short “work experience” tenure, Thomas discovered what appeared to be a dip in the light, the signal for an orbiting planet.
This newfound planet, which is the size of Jupiter and has been catalogued as WASP-142b, is an amazing find for somebody of his age. It’s up for discussion to name the planet after him. Now 17, Tom is continuing his education and looks forward to studying physics.
Tom is heading to Harvard in the fall, where he looks forward to studying physics.Back To Ambassadors
