While interning at England's Keele University, teen Tom Wagg found a new planet 1,000 light-years away.
Here's an artist's rendition of the distant world, which has been classified as a "hot Jupiter," meaning its orbit is very close to its star.
Meanwhile, Tom has aced all of his school exams and wants to study physics at university.
Way to go, Tom!
