The newfound exoplanet b Centauri b is extreme in more ways than one.

A newfound alien world may force scientists to rethink some of their ideas about planet formation.

An exoplanet 11 times more massive than Jupiter resides in b Centauri, a young binary star system about 325 light-years from Earth, a new study reports.

The planet, known as b Centauri b, is among the heaviest ever found.

And combined, the two stars in b Centauri are six to 10 times heftier than our sun, making the system by far the most massive in which a planet has been discovered to date.

b Centauri is also the hottest known planet-hosting star system, researchers said.

Artist's illustration showing a close up of the newfound planet b Centauri b, which orbits a binary star system with mass at least six times that of the sun.

This is the most massive and hottest planet-hosting star system found to date.

The planet is 11 times more massive than Jupiter and orbits the two-star system at 100 times the distance Jupiter orbits the sun.

This image, captured by the SPHERE instrument on the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope in Chile, shows the most massive known planet-hosting star pair, b Centauri (at left), and its giant planet b Centauri b (arrow).

The bright dot in the upper right is a background star.
