Planet Has Been Discovered That Should Not Be There

A planet has been discovered that should not be there. Astronomers have discovered a planet so strange that they say it should not even be in existence. It orbits its personal star at such an astonishing distance; it is causing some theories of planetary formation to be destroyed, stated researchers. It is unlike anything that is in our solar system.

The planet has a mass almost 12 times the size of Jupiter and an orbit over 650 times larger than the distance between the Earth and Sun. This newly discovered globe, with the “exciting” name HD 106906 b, is throwing quite a blow against existing planet formation concepts.

Research leader Vanessa Bailey stated that the planet is especially fascinating because no prior model of such a planet exists which can start to explain what it is that they are seeing. But she admitted that astronomers are extremely puzzled by the planet’s presence.

Bailey explained that scientists have always believed that planets which orbit too closely to stars have been created from dust, gas and debris from asteroids that enclose a fledgling star. They also thought this process was much too sluggish for tremendously large planets to be able to form so far away from a star in space.

The researcher and her associates’ have done much examination on the orb HD 106906 b, and all of it has been accepted to be printed in The Astrophysical Journal.

The planet known as HD 106906 b does not merge with any leading planet formation theories at this time. It is too far from its central star to have been created from any striking asteroid bodies when the star was first coming to life. The planet itself is much too large to have come from vapors in the ancient disk of its personal star.

It could have formed from a binary star system. These are made when two neighboring gas clumps collapse independently of each other and create stars. However, the stars are near enough to one another to apply gravitation attraction on each other and are bonded together in orbit. It might be possible that in HD 106906’s case, both a star and planet individually collapsed from clumps of gas, but the planet’s antecedent clump was hungry for material and was unable to become a star.

Bailey and her fellow researchers who have studied HD 106906 b and its sun believe the above scenario  is what might have happened, but they know it is just one theory.

The new planet is estimated to be about 13 million years old so it is considered young in space terms. It is still lightened from the remaining heat of its creation. In comparison, the Earth is believed to be around 4.5 billion years of age. This is about 350 the times of HD 106906 b. The high temperature that shows up from its formation is able to be seen from the Earth as ultraviolet energy. Researchers were able to use infrared cameras and also Magellan telescopes that are located in Chile to capture the planet’s imageries.

Since the planet was discovered in an area of space that has been watched before by other scientists due to another object, there is a lot of data to be found on that region. But even so, the discovered planet is so strange, it should not even be there.

    This “impossible planet” shares some aspects with the planet Gallifrey (where the Doctor, a Time Lord, is from,) being both bigger than Earth and orange, and the weird and impossible circumstances under which it was discovered. It would be an honor for us fans of the show if scientist could name it Gallifrey.

    I love me some Doctor Who but I’m not up to the history of the story so… why specifically is this planet being claimed as Gallefrey? Is it cause the planet exists where it isn’t supposed to? Or if it’s just the size of the planet that’s no fun~! There’s other stories that have giant planets..it could be Greecia…if it has water on it. :b

    (But if scientists actually named it Gallefrey that would be so freaking sweet)

      Don’t see how. Planets are not subatomic particles and the weak nuclear force isn’t what holds solar systems together, nor is gravity what holds atoms together. You need to get the Bohr model out of your head. Real atoms aren’t like solar systems and electrons resemble clouds more than planets.

          Actually, an idea not supported by much evidence is a hypothesis. Scientific theories are some of the most reliable and comprehensive forms of scientific knowledge. Your use of the word “Theory” is incorrect, and your animosity towards swagnebula is not only inappropriate, but is backed by ignorance, which makes it completely false. Far be it from me to tell you where you can and cannot comment, I will give you this piece of advice:

      Gallifrey is a fictional planet from the hit British science-fiction show Doctor Who, in which an alien species called Timelords, were destroyed in the Time War, along with their homeworld, Gallifrey. However, in the most recent episode that aired on Nov. 23, 2013, it was shown that Gallifrey was never destroyed at all, but instead is hidden away in a pocket universe after the Doctor, also a Timelord, called upon his past selves to freeze Gallifrey in a moment in time to save his people.

    Oh. OH. You are BRILLIANT! Yowzah!

So I ask her what it is, expecting it to be a joke or maybe one of those ridiculous cat pictures. But no, what have you humans done? Only gone and found Gallifrey! Imagine that! There’s me, expecting to wander round for years in my time machine, and you humans just point your funny little telescopes up at the sky, and just happen to see that microscopic fragment of the universe that I was looking for… you humans never fail to amaze me. So thank you. Thank you, people of Earth, on behalf of the citizens of Gallifrey. You are just FANTASTIC!

    Oh, and please sign this piece of the internet to convince your leaders to acknowledge the true name of my planet. What did they want to call us? HD 106906 b? That’s rubbish. Gallifrey is a much cooler name. http://www.change.org/petitions/international-astronomical-union-name-the-recently-discovered-planet-hd-106906-b-gallifrey-in-honor-of-doctor-who-s-50-years

    Why in the world is it in any way similar to Gallifrey? It is unusual in that it is hard to describe its placement using conventional theories of planet formation, but it’s not like it randomly miraculously popped into the existence. And what we know of Gallifrey, it orbits a binary star system, close enough to be habitable. It is terrestrial and has atmosphere to create day-night cycle we are familiar with. This planet literally has none of these things.

    To the one that left the note about it being a gas giant, if you read the article it says that the planet is still on fire from its creation. This does not necessarily mean that it is a gas giant. It means that the planet is still forming. So therefore we do not know if it is going to become a gas giant or a terrestrial planet until it is finished forming, so it could be called Gallifrey.

    I really want this planet to be named Gallifrey. Even if it just an honorary name, or a nickname, there really needs to be a Gallifrey out there in the universe. Doctor Who is legendary, award winning, record breaking, and global, and this planet deserves something special and supernatural as its name, How better to honor its existence than by dubbing it the home planet of our beloved time travelling alien, The Doctor? Years from now, when I have grandchildren, and I tell them about my favorite show growing up, I want to tell them that we found the planet that The Doctor was from. Do it for the fandom!

    Guys, stop making comments about how God created everything and science is wrong. I am Christian and yes it is true that God made everything. But even still, you have to respect other people. Science is not completely wrong. God made the resources, science made them to create wonderful things. Science brought us the tools that have helped us along through the centuries. Science brought us the computer you are using, the internet, cellphones, cars and so much more. Science helps us to reach out into the universe and see all of his wonderful creations. Although science’s theories disagree with our beliefs, we still need to accept theirs the same we expect them to respect ours.

    • Matthew Carpenter   December 7, 2013 at 9:32 am

      The thing is, so many of these “scientists” try to leave God out of it, which causes a lot of young people to leave the church completely the minute they go to college and get force-fed evolution.

      Science itself can be good, but it can be misused.

      Reply
      • Mathelete   December 7, 2013 at 11:20 am

        That’s funny, cause I don’t see many conflicts between science and religion. Science created us, but who created science? There’s still room for God. As for evolution, it only tells us that we evolved from more basic forms of life, but it does not tell us where the first life forms on Earth came from. You could say they were created. You could also think of creationism as God working on a “project”, and each step in evolution would be him making an “upgrade” to his creation.

        People have this misconception that science and atheism are the same, but they are completely different.

      • Sugna   December 7, 2013 at 11:23 am

        the thing is, you were being asked to give respect to those who believe otherwise. furthermore they arnt force fed information. they have a choice to believe what they learn in college, their goal is just to know what science says, not to believe it. iif someone chooses to believe god had nothing to do with the universe, then let them believe it, have some respect, or are you one of those fake religious people who believe in everything in the bible but think its ok to do/say what ever you want because someone died ages ago for your sins -_- so please, just have some respect, leave it at that. if you give respect, you get respect

    As a Chridtian and a believer that there must be a God, I do not fear science an discovery. I believe that is what man should do, discover how we can use for the good of mankind (albeit sometimes discovery is used for evil intent)what we have been given. It seems however science is used to always start from a point that there is no God and what we are left with is the superior mind of “man” along with his pride and desires for fame and honor who always seems surprised by new discovery not in agreement with previous “theory” such as Darwinism.

    Whaaat? a planet that is not supposed to be there??? W….@$#@%F. well we all know what is to be done. With the bravery and universal knowledge of Sarah Palin and the Mavericky Maverick fighter pilot John Mccain, we will send John with his own custom built fully loaded eco friendly ( due to fuel prices and contamination issues ) fighter jet to the space to find that planet and teach universe, that when a planet is not suppose to be there then it should not be there, and that will also warn the aliens from possible attacking the Earth when they learn that we still got guys and girls like sarah and john on earth. We might even warn God a little to get this game’s end together and John , Sarah’s mavericky maverick tell Him that America wont let another one play god and guardian. Get Him John.

    Proverbs 25:2 It is God’s privilege to conceal things and the king’s privilege to discover them.

    The “christians” who downplay these discoveries are only jealous. The humans who make these discoveries are privileged and they know it and they feel it. The person-of-faith should stand side by side marveling with the scientist. Unraveling the mysterious of the universe is the privilege of kings, don’t keep yourself from these amazing experiences. And don’t try to discourage them. Just because the “rabbit-hole” is without end doesn’t mean you should turn back.

    Could another theory that planet HD 106906 b shares multiple orbits in different surrounding solar systems meaning it’s being pulled in multiple directions therefore having a large orbit around 2+ stars. I’m curious to see what they’d find should they track its entire orbit God willing. Either way awesome find.

    Really? People still try to bring the “God” argument into science? Even in this day and age when things can be scientifically proven and yet the Bible is still nothing but a book with no evidence or proof whatsoever? Even with the known existence of the missing books of the Bible with go against the very teachings of the Bible in its present form? It’s amazing to me the ignorance of some people in the face of undeniable facts…

      the bible isn’t what that is questioned as your argument is very weak at best.
      you do not know real science and neither do most scientists because science is simply the observation of and not the explanation of but discussion to determine…the possibilities…so take your biases and leave them in the weak argument that you presented as science does not prove the bible nor can it but the science of the bible is amazingly accurate. you are the bit of dust blowing in the breeze of weak science….

        Look guys, I’m also Christian and through I believe in God’s creation of everything, you cannot just through away science. it has brought us many wonderful things through God’s resources. If you are a true Christian you will not throw away everything the science finds, but will instead marvel at it in the same way scientist do. It is an amazing thing and though we cannot agree with scientists on everything, we can at least find a common grounds such as a new discovery.

      Hmm. I feel you should look into this topic more before making such a remark. When you say the “missing books of the Bible” are you referring to the nag Hammado codices? Gnosticism was a cult that arose after the formation of the early Christian church. They believed that Jesus taught something other than what the eywitnesses and their disciple taught, and thus wrote their books accordingly. Notice that the rise of Gnosticism is now dated in the second century, whereas current sayings for the books of the New Testament range between 50 an 100 CE. It is also demonstrated that the books make claims which are inconsistent with historical fact and thus untenable. If you are referring to the apocrypha, they do not “go against” what the Bible teaches; there are usually just a couple questionable details that demonstrate a potential lack of divine inspiration.

      And if you want to talk about ignorance in the face of undeniable facts, try this out for size: creationists have been arguing for perhaps decades now that the universe is far too fine-tuned to have just started. People like you laughed at us. But do you even realize that the current understanding among prominent physicists is that there is no way a universe as ideal as ours could have been created in a spontaneous reaction. So they admit that we were right all along. And yet they cannot accept the idea of a creator…instead they propose something which cannot be called a theory because it’s not falsifiable: the idea of an infinite or near infotech number of alternate universes. At lest claims made by Christianity can be more or less tested (the veracity f the Bible, etc.).

    The planet is there because there is an ultimate creator who does what he pleases. God created the universe. Its not that the planet shouldn’t be there, its just that scientist, though smart in human or worldly terms, will never have the answers or ability to explain the wonders and work’s of God… Especially when they deny his existence. They are blind and without understanding as God has shown over and over when they are stumped without “answers”. We may think we know, they may believe they have made discoveries and found answer’s about the universe… but we’re all clueless …unless we have the mind, wisdom, understanding and almighty power that God has. Done.

      Love how God continually keeps evolutionary scientists baffled and backpedaling. His marvelous Creation is always throwing their worldview into a tailspin. They can’t understand because they are not God. Pride keeps them from Faith in His awesome mysteries. Praise You Father in Heaven for confounding the foolish wisdom of man.

        And this is why religious people are dangerous. Lets not try to figure anything out and just worship God. Have you ever thought that maybe God make the universe and all thing observable and eventually understandable so that we will learn and evolve? The computer you are typing on to share your dumb thoughts was made possible by millions of years of human beings studying nature and learning from it to become something more than cave dwelling berry eating cavemen. You should put down you fairy tale book and do some thought exercises for the good of everyone.

      ALewis, I’m glad that this situation is figured out. Next topic. We should never consider looking into other alternatives or research because of this reasoning. Oh dang, my shoe laces are untied, I hate when god does that to me. It definitely wasn’t the fact that I stepped on my shoe lace. Now that this dilemma is figured out we should also point out all the other things scientific that we haven’t figured out and give god credit. We as human beings aren’t capable of researching, it is much easier to just give god credit. I’m glad we never figured out other phenomenon like electric fields, magnetic fields, forces, etc. we are obviously too dumb and shouldn’t even try.

        Way to misunderstand his comment…I love your this is just a failed reductio ad absurdum. He’s merely saying that if realized that a Creator IS the cause of all this, we would more or less expect these unexpected occurrence, because we would realize the limitation of our own knowledge and understanding. Few Christians would tell you we shouldn’t conduct scientific research…as we believe that creation is good, so do we believe that exploring and understanding that creation is good. We’re not frickin’ Gnostics or anything.

      Or maybe this is a pretty normal thing and we just weren’t there to see it? I wonder if the first time a newborn baby sees the faint outlines of it’s mother’s face, it believes itself to have discovered God. If you want to have a conversation about how we “know” something, then that is a conversation for philosophy, not theology. To invoke “God” in this context is just a not-so-clever way of saying, “I don’t need a reason.” But what the heck does that have to do with gravity? Or is that just something silly scientists made up?
