CSI member Lisa Kaltenegger is part of the team and an author of the paper. The paper can be found on the preprint server astroph: TESS DISCOVERY OF AN ULTRA-SHORT-PERIOD PLANET AROUND THE NEARBY M DWARF LHS 3844. LHS 3844b may even be orbiting a low-luminosity secondary star.

TESS just started observations in July. These first detections were part of the open TESS alert system
