Very interesting (understatement) piece of news back nearly a week ago now, apologies if this has been posted earlier by someone.

'This link follows the discovery of a remarkable solar system 2,000 light years away. It breaks the rules and will not be easy to explain, according to scientists studying the find.'

To think at that distance in this vast cosmos, we are but scratching at the surface, goodness knows what lies beyond?
