Astronomers discovered a ‘marshmallow’ world orbiting a red dwarf star

580 light-years from Earth, astronomers found a peculiar "marshmallow" planet.

The WIYN 3.5-meter Telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory spotted the odd planet, which NOIRLab depicted above.

Astronomers observed that the marshmallow planet, as many call it, was far less dense than other gas giants.

Astronomers call this a marshmallow planet because the gas giant has a marshmallow-like density.

They have, however, offered an explanation for the density of the Marshmallow Universe.

Planets like Jupiter, which are also gas giants, may have become so huge by consuming smaller planets.
