[SysBP Img]

Star that is only 100,000 years old that contains a protoplanet 14 times as massive as Jupiter and the youngest planet so far discovered. It was spotted as a clump and beat the previous youngest planet record holder (TW Hydrae) found earlier that year by a long shot, which was 10,000,000 years old.
