PLANETS…LOST IN SPACE!!! NASA astronomers just discovered the existence of about 10 Jupiter sized planets floating through Space, not circling a star. These lone wanderers are thought to have been rejected from the place of their birth by dueling forces of gravity from nearby planets and stars which occurred during early formation of planetary systems. These loners, know as orphan planets, seem to suggest that there are many more outcasts out there, maybe twice as many as there are stars! Hundreds of billions of lost planets drifting through Space.
But! In a month you will be able to adopt a planet, they might not have a star to circle, but you can be the light in their life 🙂
