Capturing the first image of two giant planets around a 'Young Sun'

Even though thousands of exoplanets have been detected in our galaxy during the past decades, only a small fraction of these distant worlds has been imaged. New observations with the Very Large Telescope enabled us to take the first image of two gas giants that are orbiting a young, solar analogue.
