A planet from another galaxy has strayed into the Milky Way, making it the first discovery of its kind.
Slightly larger than Jupiter, the planet is orbiting a star 2,000 light years from earth. The star, called H-I-P 13044 is part of a stream of stars that were engulfed by the Milky Way several billion years ago.
An astronomer from the UK Royal Astronomical Society explained to the BBC the significance of the discovery.
Dr. Robert Massey: “There’s every reason to believe that planets are really quite widespread throughout the Universe, not just in our own galaxy…but this is the first time we’ve got hard evidence of that.”
The discovery won’t just give insight into the rest of the universe; RT reports it could also give clues to the workings of own solar system.
“Scientists say this alien planet is now nearing the end of its life and could help us better understand the ultimate fate of earth and the demise of our solar system.”
Scientists thought they understood how planets were formed from stars, but the composition of this planet and the age of its star have astronomers questioning some of their former ideas.
“According to National Geographic, the planet’s composition is radically different from other planets in the Milky Way and lack of heavy metal suggests it never should have been created.” (WHDH)
Wired explains the star is older than it should be.
“Also unusual is that [the star] is old enough to have exhausted its supply of hydrogen fuel… A star in this phase of evolution … has never been found to have a planet.”
With all sorts of new questions being raised TIME Magazine says one thing is for sure.
“The field of planetary science, which seemed so tidy and settled as recently as the 1990s, is still full of surprises.”

A message of hope for humanity for 2012...many profound changes are about to happen in this leap into a Golden Age....Enjoy !
Take a zoom across the Milky Way Galaxy to our little Solar System.
In the future, the Milky Way Federation has decided to respond to political uprising on planet Graceland by bombing its population. "Mister" and his coyote pirate crew have only 5 days to get to Graceland before it is destroyed, and two women from the opposite ends of the law in hot pursuit!
This animation depicts a spiral galaxy like the Milky Way where hot X-ray-emitting gas emanates from regions of recent star formation in the galaxy's disk
I have made a blues piano video,but im a beginner.I want to dedicate the video to the jewish people.Im not a important person,but i hope it is ok that i dedicate this video to the jew.I have some friends that are jew and they are great people.MARK TWAIN SAID ABOUT THE JEW.If the statistics are
right, the Jews constitute
but one percent of the human race. It suggests
a nebulous dim puff of star dust lost in the blaze
of the Milky Way. Properly the Jew ought hardly
to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been
heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any
other people, and his commercial importance is
extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness
of his bulk. His contributions to the world's list of
great names in literature, science, art, music, finance,
medicine, and abstruse learning are also away out of
proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has
made a marvellous fight in the world, in all the ages;
and has done it with his hands tied behind him. He
could be vain of himself, and be excused for it. The
Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled
the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to
dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the
Roman followed, and made a vast noise, and they
are gone; other peoples have sprung up and held
their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and
they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew
saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he
always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities
of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his
energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind.
All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass,
but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?
In this video game trailer, Rayman watched TV and discovered that Earth is taken over by rabbids, he is abled to consult Betilla the fairy and she agreed to let him fight them and bring a few friends along the way. Meanwhile, the rabbids wage war on both humankind and on foreigners from the other side of the milky way galaxy with their weapons like carrots and plungers.

Watch the season 4 premiere of THE UNIVERSE with the new episode "Death Stars" on Tuesday, August 18th at 9pm/8c. For most, it's the deadly centerpiece of the film Star Wars. But in truth, real death stars are in the final stage of life before they explode into supernovae and, occasionally, the biggest blast in the universe--the gamma ray burst (GRB). One death star, named WR104, lurks 8,000 light-years from Earth and some believe its GRB arrow is aimed directly at us. A death star galaxy named 3C321 is a terrifying vision of what could one day befall the Milky Way galaxy: a companion galaxy's black hole is hammering it with a constant blast of high-energy particles, wreaking havoc with its celestial bodies. Nearby, Death Stars Eta Carinae and Betelgeuse burn through their fuel supplies as they hurtle toward extinction--and possibly a violent ending that's too close for comfort.
Part 3 – *******www.timeline2012**** This video includes: Ivan/Evon Stein providing a detailed understanding of the galactic equator; when and how Earth passes the galactic equator; what kind of energies exist there; what are the possible causes to Earth and the solar system; and how the galactic equator may be responsible for the polar shift, reversal of Earth’s rotation, and the coming ice age. This video includes scientific examples of how energy is released on the galactic equator, along with deep space photos from the Hubble telescope of galaxies and visual energy being released by a galaxy. Ivan demonstrates the path that Earth takes around the Milky Way galaxy and the frequency of passing the galactic equator.
*******www.hd-fractals**** A magnification of the infinity deep and vastly complex Mandelbrot fractal set with colour cycling. The final magnification is e.130. Want some perspective? A magnification of e.12 would increase the size of an actual single particle to the same size as the earths orbit! e.21 would make that particle look the same size as the milky way! e.42 would be equal to the universe! This zoom is over double that. If you were actually traveling into the fractal, your speed would be faster than the speed of light.
