Mysterious exo-planets

The story in Science we read this morning shows us that we have very much to learn about the formation of exo-planets which do not fit our models based on our solar system.

I find it inspiring that the great feats of science and engineering by which we explore distant stars and our solar system open so many new puzzles to be solved. Many endless frontiers.
