Youngest star ever found

Awwwwwww, how cute :)

A little baby star
Astronomers have found the youngest star in The Universe. It is 300,000 years old, but something indicates it can be 150,000 years old.
Beacause, it has grown in mass just a bit more quickly in it's earlier years

The star is called L1527, and it lies in the constellation Taurus, 450 light-years away
