Exoplanet NAM post

I’ve written up a new post about today’s NAM announcement of the discovery of an embryonic exoplanet. The first paragraph is below:

“Astronomers here in Belfast have just announced that they have discovered what they believe to be the youngest ever planet observed. So young that it may have not completely formed yet. They used radio telescopes in the UK (the MERLIN network) and in the US (the VLA) to study the star system of HL Tau, a star in Taurus about 520 light years from Earth”
