NASA’s TESS telescope spots 6 exoplanets around ‘misbehaving’ toddler star

Astronomers have discovered a rare system of six young planets and a possible seventh that dance around a misbehaving infant star. 

Not only could this system provide much-needed insight into how planets form and evolve around an infant star, but its similarity to the solar system could provide astronomers with a snapshot of what our cosmic neighborhood could have looked like around 4 billion years ago.
