Astronomers have discovered a baby world that’s the youngest planet ever spotted out in space.

The newly-found planet is called K2-33b and is aged between five and ten million years old.

This infant world makes Planet Earth look like a clapped out old timer, because our home has been around for a whopping 4.5billion years.

The junior planet is about the size of Neptune and is set in a star system that’s 500 light years from Earth.

It is one of the few ‘baby’ planets to have been discovered to date and could shed light on Earth’s evolution.
