Young hot Neptune migrated to its star

Analysis of observation data of ground and space telescopes for a young hot Neptune K2-25b showed that its unusual orbital characteristics can be explained by the mechanism of migration to the star, not the perturbing influence of another celestial body. This confirms the theory that exoplanets of the type of hot Jupiter and hot Neptune formed far from their stars, and then gradually converging with them.
