‘All By Myself’: Lonely Planet Found Floating Around in Space
NASA has discovered a new planet floating freely around the galaxy proving the theory that in the dark depths of space, lonely planets outnumber stars in the Milky Way.
A recent study “provides new clues in this mystery of galactic proportions,” said NASA, after scientists found a free-floating, planetary-mass object within a young star family called the TW Hydrae association.
The newly discovered planet, called WISEA 1147 for short, is thought to be up to ten times the size of Jupiter.
