Rogue planet follows it's own path
Is the latest planet discovery individually free-floating 100 light years distant within our Milky Way galaxy, which seems to be traveling with a set of young stars referred to as the AB Doradus Moving Group. It appears to be traveling in the proximity of the AB Doradus star but as far as cam be detected, not orbiting any of them, and research astronomers are yet to determine if our bad boy is part of that family.
Although researchers at ESO say its comparative proximity, and the absence of a bright star very close to it, have allowed the team to study its atmosphere in great detail. The video here reveals an artist's impression of the free-floating planet,entitled CFBDSIR J214947.2-040308.9 courtesy of space.com
