    • The possible exoplanet is orbiting a star known as GQ Lup, thought to be similar to our own Sun, when it was younger.
    • Could it be an exoplanet in orbit around that young brown dwarf object at a projected distance of about 8,250 million km?
    • When astronomers study all those exoplanets and the systems they inhabit, it is natural to look to our own solar system as a template for other planetary systems.
    • Nevertheless, this unique observing technique opens a new phase in the exploration of exoplanets, or extrasolar planets, say astronomers.
    • Many of these exoplanets are large planets that resemble the gas giants of our solar system: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.
