Scientists discovered the biggest planet ever found. 10 times bigger than Jupiter, and thought to be impossible until now. The planet now called “b Centauri b” orbits a pair of massive, extremely hot stars more than 3 times larger than our Sun, an environment previously thought too inhospitable for a planet to form. Scientists have named the planet “b Centauri (AB)b” or “b Centauri b” as it is found at the center of a solar system in the Centaurus constellation widely orbiting a dual B type star (2 stars) with one of the largest orbits of any planet ever found. This challenges the way stars and planets are thought to be formed and has scientists scratching their heads again. #science #planets #stars #newplanet #hugeplanet #cantaurus #centaurib #discovery #dualstar #gasplanet #astronomy #space
