    When a planetary object has a mass about twice that of Jupiter, it can collapse into a small, hot star because of the sheer gravity.. and at 700k, it basically is a dead/dormant, star

    But that's neat nonetheless, how we can see this kind of thing

    Planets don't have to have stars, but this kind of bends the meaning of what people think a planet is. When people think of a planet, they think of a spherical object that orbits a star in a pattern with neighboring planets, unless there are no neighbors. This changes the stereotypical meaning of a planet. Nice discovery.

    Pretty cool if you think about it, the galaxy is still maturing even after such a long time.
    No essentially thats what a certain type of asteroid is... a collection of space debris just circling around (im not referring to solid asteroids)
