Astronomers Discover Planet of Other Galaxies

WASHINGTON - Astronomers claim to have discovered a planet filled with hot gas content, is orbiting rapidly among the stars in the galaxy.
Scientists claim if the discovery of planetary astronomy who came from outside this galaxy is the first time. This outer planet discovered by astronomers from the Max Planck Institute.
Launched by the Straits Times, Friday (19/11/2010), this planet has a size larger than the size of Jupiter. In fact Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system. Not to mention, the outermost planet is orbiting at a distance of 2000 light years from Earth, and is expected to enter into the ranks of the Milky Way galaxy.

Exoplanet is believed to be part of Helmi, a group of stars that remained after the mini-galaxy merging with the Milky Way galaxy, approximately six to nine billion years ago.
"This discovery is very interesting because of distance planets far enough, there is no confirmation that detect other planets outside the galaxy. But this cosmic merger has brought distant planet from the galaxy is in our reach," said Rainer Klement of the Max Planck Institute
