    Amazing

    Note to the moderators, please change the title of the thread to "young planet"

    "An infant planet just a million years old is puzzling astrophysicists - it is simply too young to exist, according to the standard model of planet formation.

    Evidence for this precocious planet comes in the form of infrared radiation from the Taurus Molecular Cloud, about 400 light years away, detected by NASA's Spitzer space telescope."
