  1. It’s getting interesting.

    1. It’s. But it might still take a few years before that planet is actually found – if it exists.

      1. If it’s a rogue brown dwarf, we might be in for trouble.

      2. Well, it’s estimated to be about 5 tot 15 earth masses, so it’s very unlikely to be brown darf – which should about 12 Jupiter masses.
