NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope shared an image of a growing planet

This image shows a huge planet outside the solar system feeding material around a young star.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Hubble Space Telescope gave astronomers the appearance of a rare Jupiter-sized planet still forming. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) shared an image of an exoplanet, a planet outside the solar system, on the official social media page of the Hubble Telescope. 

The exoplanet is called PDS 70b and it feeds on the material that surrounds the young star. NASA said on social media that the solar alien has grown 5 million years (“a fairly young age of the planets”) to its current size. The image shows a red-hot planet emitting electrical sparks, and its other end is connected to the surrounding halo as if the planet sucked in from the outside like a tube. 

“These Hubble observations have helped us understand how the gas giant planets formed around the Sun 4.6 billion years ago,” NASA added.

NASA explained that PDS 70b shows how it accumulates mass from the material that fell into its huge world. This system, the beginning of the exoplanet and its infancy, is located 370 light-years from Earth in the constellation Centaurus. NASA said in a blog post that these observations will provide information about the giant planets that formed around the sun 4.6 billion years ago. 


Jupiter may have accumulated in the disk of matter falling around it. NASA said in a blog that its main satellite also formed from the remains of the dish. NASA said it has recorded more than 4,000 exoplanets so far, but only about 15 of them have been directly captured by the telescope. 

These planets are so far apart and small that they only appear as dots in the best photos. However, scientists say it is hopeful that Hubble’s new technology could open up an entirely new field of research. A NASA report quoted Brendan Bowler of the University of Texas at Austin.
