JWST spots jupiter size Floating Planets they do not revolve around any star

Till now we have been reading that every planet revolves around its star. All the planets of our solar system revolve around the Sun. But a discovery is offering new evidence. James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), the largest telescope ever deployed in space, has seen Jupiter-sized 'planets'. These objects are floating independently in space and are not connected to any star. These objects have been named Jupiter Mass Binary Objects or ''JuMBOs''.

The James Webb Telescope identified about 40 such pairs while surveying the Orion Nebula. According to NDTV report, these objects are too small to become stars. At the same time, the definition of a planet is also being challenged. It is not in the orbit of its star. Nor do they revolve around any star. These discoveries have surprised scientists. Scientists want to understand what these things are.

The European Space Agency (ESA) has given two possible arguments for the formation of these objects. The first argument is that these objects developed in areas in the nebula where the material present was insufficient for the formation of a star.

The second possibility is that when these objects were formed, they were around the stars, but the gravity of the stars moved them away from themselves. At present scientists do not have any clear answer regarding these objects. Even he himself is not able to understand why these objects are floating in space. Why don't they revolve around a star?

Talking about James Webb Space Telescope, this space observatory built at a cost of about Rs 10 thousand crores was launched in the year 2021. It started its work in space from July last year and since then this telescope has given many new information to scientists.
