Caption NASA's Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite has confirmed the tiniest planet in its catalog so far -- one of three discovered around a bright, nearby star called L 98-59. As shown in the illustrations in this video, all could occupy the "Venus zone," the range of distances from the star where a Venus-like atmosphere is possible. The outermost planet also has the potential for a Neptune-like atmosphere.
