New planet formation hypothesis places giant hidden worlds everywhere

Where does this quote come from? Masses of 10 MJ are not exactly rare but near the planet/brown dwarf boundery (~ 13MJ) - the NASA news release does not mention any planetary masses, the two linked papers describe models between 1 and 6 MJ.


Wow - I came to ask where that line is, and Mister Science already has it covered. Good job!


It came from Randy, Describing Eternity.

Every thousand years

This metal sphere

Ten times the size of Jupiter

Floats just a few yards past the earth

You climb on your roof

And take a swipe at it

With a single feather

Hit it once every thousand years

'Til you’ve worn it down

To the size of a pea

Yeah I’d say that’s a long time

But it’s only half a blink

In the place you’re gonna be


“enormity”? Don’t think so…



Enormity != Enormousness
