gabbo529 writes "A group of researchers have discovered a new class of planets in the Milky Way Galaxy and they don't have an orbital home. According to a study done by a group of international researchers, the planets are dark, isolated Jupiter-mass bodies located far away from any host star. The researchers, led by Takahiro Sumi of Osaka University, say the planets were most likely ejected from developing planetary systems. The researchers' study will appear as part of a paper appearing in the May 19th issue of the journal Nature."
