Twitter was sent into a tizzy after Grimes revealed that Lil Uzi Vert had allegedly bought a whole planet! As her post went viral, people rushed to the platform to learn more about the same while many had questions about the planet WASP-127 b, which according to Elon Musk’s girlfriend now belongs to the rapper.

While Lil Uzi responded saying he’s “still working on it”, Grimes went on to say that the legal documentation for the purchase of the extra-terrestrial body was “almost complete”, thus claiming that the rapper will be the “first human to legally own a planet.”

It was first discovered in 2008

Even though people are curious to know more about WASP-127 b after Grimes claimed that the rapper had bought it, its discovery dates back to more than a decade ago. It was discovered by the SuperWASP planetary transit survey in 2008. Its discovery was announced in 2016.

To simply put it, WASP-127 b is an extrasolar planet orbiting the star of the same name. And, unlike Earth that takes 365 days to orbit sun, the rapper’s alleged planet only takes a little more than a day to orbit the star.

How big is the planet and where is it located?

The exoplanet is said to be located about 522.6 light-years away from the Solar System. To simply put it, 1 light year is equivalent to 5.87 trillion Miles.  This means, WASP-127 b is really far away, beyond one’s imagination.

And, as far as the size of the planet is considered, the tweet re-shared by Grimes states WASP-127 b  is “a gas giant exoplanet 1.4x larger than Jupiter orbiting a yellow dwarf star”. Per NASA, its mass is 0.1647 Jupiter.

Meanwhile, no alternate name has been given to the planet yet. Perhaps, the rapper can come up with one if the reports about him allegedly buying this planet are true!

Twitter erupts on seeing Grimes’ tweet!

The news surrounding Lil Uzi allegedly buying a planet has gathered the most funniest of reactions. While some seem genuinely surprised to know that the rapper has his own planet, the other simply used the opportunity to share some good laugh.

One tweeted “My only question is if he is the first to own a planet who is he paying for the planet and why? I also have an ocean front property in Idaho for sale if you want to buy that as well @LILUZIVERT”

Another added, “If Lil Uzi Vert is allowed to just randomly buy a planet I think I want to opt out of society”

Adding to the above tweets, one said, “The person who sold Lil Uzi Vert a planet is the master of finesse”
