This new free-floating planet has six times the mass of Jupiter, 100 billion times the optical wavelengths than Venus and currently floats alone without a sun orbiting around to provide heat.
Formed 12 million years ago, this young planet is made up of a collection of young stars called the Beta Pictoris. Beta Pictoris also moves and harbors around the planet Jupiter.
