Looking into the Orion nebula, the closest star-forming area to planet Earth, scientists have detected a new form of celestial body: nicknamed “Jumbos,” short for JUpiter Mass Binary Objects, these huge objects are arranged in pairs and are not associated with any stars. Their formation is a mystery, and scientists have identified around 40 of these pairs.
