A Massive Exoplanet Has Been Discovered By Group of Scientist

An international  team of astronomers has discovered a “ super-jupiter” so massive that it seems they are not quite sure whether to call it a planet or a low –mass brown dwarf( that is a star that fai to fire). Located roughly 170 light-years from earth, the host star is roughly 2.5 times more massive than the sun and it’s planet is about 13 times larger than Jupiter, making this the highest-mass star to ever host a directly imaged orbital companion-especially one of this size.
Let me leave the story here till when it has been  ascertained.
