[Instant News/Comprehensive Report] Astronomers recently discovered a huge gas giant planet with a density similar to cotton candy, orbiting a red dwarf star 580 light-years away from Earth.

According to comprehensive foreign media reports, this Jupiter-like planet is the least dense planet ever orbiting a red dwarf star, which is the smallest and faintest star.

And this marshmallow-like planet is so close to the red dwarf that it completes a full orbit 25 times faster than the closest planet to the sun, Mercury.

The size of this planet is also much larger than that of Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system, with a diameter of about 150,000 kilometers. Astronomers named him "TOI-3757 b".
