02. The Loneliest Planet HD 106906 B
There is always a “forever alone guy” present in every community due to the reserved nature of it. Same is the case with the community of planets. This planet is the loneliest of them as it hangs out all by him giving lift to none. It revolves around its host star at a distance of 60,000,000,000 miles, over 20 times the space between Neptune and the Sun. Located nearly 300 light years away from the Earth, the “Super-Jupiter” class planet which is above 11 times larger than the Jupiter, is thus too far away from the host to gather raw material needed for its formation. Astrophysicists hypothecate that it is a failed star, thus challenging the binary star theory, since it is too small for binary formations.
