The Youngest Planet?


Astronomers have discovered signs of a planet outside our solar system which even they acknowledge may be less than two thousand years old. This finding is challenging assumptions about planetary evolution, which claims that gravity pulls dust and gas together and eventually assembles a planet.

Scientists say that this yet-to-be-confirmed planet formed about 1,600 years ago. If confirmed, this might suggest that some planets were not part of God’s initial creation but were allowed to form later through His continuous upholding power.
