‘Monster’ planet discovery challenges formation theory

Quote

A giant planet – the existence of which was previously thought extremely unlikely – has been discovered by an international collaboration of astronomers, with the University of Warwick taking a leading role.

New research, led by Dr Daniel Bayliss and Professor Peter Wheatley from the University of Warwick’s Astronomy and Astrophysics Group, has identified the unusual planet NGTS-1b - the largest planet compared to the size of its companion star ever discovered in the universe.

Maybe the Red Dwarf is hiding something inside that we haven't discovered yet? Are we sure of the mass of the planet?  Maybe it isn't as dense as we think?  just asking.
