Baby gas giant: it's the little pink one towards the left of the picture

NASA HQ - (Ass Mess): Scientists at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration have warned that predatory molesters are ready to cash in on images of a newly discovered 'baby planet'.

The nascent celestial body is orbiting the star HL Tau on the edge of space bordered by constellations Gemini and Taurus, a sector that famously spawned the Greek half-man half-bullshit legend the Minotaur.

"The little monster is destined to become a gas giant," NASA's Dr V Hokum, Halliburton Visiting Professor of Cryptocosmology said today.

"We must get our claws into it first before anybody else gets the idea of exploiting it."

NASA's concerns come amid reports that Russia's Gazprom energy corporation is readying to fit a huge pipeline from the embryonic proto-planet into a relay pump at the International Space Station from where shuttles will transport endless supplies of the cosmic LNG back to earth.

Vladimir Putin is 69.
