Using the Subaru Telescope, scientists have discovered a “super-Jupiter” that orbits around the star Kappa Andromedae. The planet, which is about 13 times the size of Jupiter, walks the line between planet and star due to its tremendous mass.
It’s 170 light-years away from Earth and is also very young, as its parent star is only 30 million years old.
Only 30 million years old. The Earth isn’t that old. What a bunch of junk.
Not everything is judged based on the Earth.
I find this interesting. Don’t just think about the mass think about the gasses inside. If we could mine it it would be an industrial amazement!
This also brings up the space elevator. A point I made is that it’s speed would be similar to a regular elevators speed. But if we mined this gas it would go much faster!
30 million years old !?! Space is not even 10,000 years old!
The Universe (you might be thinking me but this is just a nickname)is 14.7 BILLION years old and counting! Yes, we are including zeptoseconds.
