Spectrographic analysis yields empirical benchmark for newborn 'hot Jupiter'

The knowledge base about how stars REALLY develop grows:

'CI Tau b is a paradoxical planet, but new research about its mass, brightness and the carbon monoxide in its atmosphere is starting to answer questions about how a planet so large could have formed around a star that's only 2 million years old.

At today's meeting of the American Astronomical Society, astronomers Christopher Johns-Krull of Rice University and Lisa Prato of Lowell Observatory presented findings from a four-year near-infrared spectroscopic analysis of light from CI Tau b, a close-orbiting giant exoplanet, or "hot Jupiter," in a nine-day orbit around its parent star about 450 light years from Earth in the constellation Taurus.

"The exciting thing is that we are able to detect light directly from the planet, and it's the first time that's been done for a close-in planet around a star this young," said Johns-Krull, professor of physics and astronomy and co-author of a study that's slated for publication in AAS's Astrophysical Journal Letters. "The most valuable way to learn how planets form is to study planets, like CI Tau b, that are either still forming or have just formed."

For decades, most astronomers believed giant planets like Jupiter and Saturn formed far from their stars over periods of 10 million years or more. But the discovery of dozens of "hot Jupiters" led to new theoretical models that describe how such planets might form.

"At about 2 million years old, CI Tau b is by far the youngest hot Jupiter directly detected," she said. "We now have a mass and brightness for it—the only directly measured mass and brightness for a young hot Jupiter—and that provides very strong tests for planet-formation models."

I wonder, will the Blunderbolts/Electric Loonyverse cult members reject and find conspiracy hidden in this study too?
