Rogue planets, the planets that roam in interstellar space without orbiting around a star, were spotted by a team led by astrophysicist Takahiro Sumi from Osaka University in Japan in 2011, where it is now believed it could be, the Daily Star reported. There are billions or even trillions of those planets in our galaxy.
The newspaper pointed out that a rogue planet the size of Earth has now been identified by researchers, as this planet is the smallest object of its kind that has ever been cataloged, and it is called a planet, OGLE-2016-BLG-1928, as it will have a gravitational field similar to the Earth field.
It is unlikely that there will be sources of life on this endless, dark planet, which is very likely frigid, but recent discoveries have shown that nothing is impossible when it comes to life outside of the Earth.
The planet, named OGLE-2016-BLG-1928, is the shortest object ever recorded, lasting only 42 minutes.
