Hey Whyville! I logged onto MSN messenger today, and this annoying news-ish
thing popped up when I fully logged on. Usually, I don't give these things much
time, but something caught my eye. It said, "13 billion year old planet
discovered." This got me interested, and I clicked the link, which brought me to
an article. I got pretty interested after reading it, and did more research, and
now I'm writing this article. Enjoy!
This planet, astronomers say, is twice the size of Jupiter. Jupiter is 318
times as large as the earth, with an equator of 142,984 km. Think about that
and let it sink in. There's a 13 billion year old planet that's 2x the size of
the our solar system's largest planet, and they just now discovered it?
