Scientists have spotted a gigantic exoplanet that they believe is hiding deep at the center of the Milky Way, about 22,000 light-years away from Earth, a large team is reporting in a paper recently posted on the physics pre-print server arxiv and submitted to The Astrophysical Journal. The new planet orbits a star a little smaller than our own sun at about twice the distance that Earth orbits the sun. The exoplanet has been given the clunky label OGLE-2016-BLG-1190Lb, but don't let the name bore you. It's a little bigger than 13 Jupiters smooshed together, which means that for a planet, it's really, really big—in fact, it may actually be large enough to be a tiny little star, what's called a brown dwarf, instead. read more Disclaimer: Chances are that this post was requested by an advertiser.
