The young massive Jupiters discovered with high-contrast imaging1–4 provide a unique opportunity to study the formation and early evolution of gas giant planets. A key question is to what extent gravitational energy from accreted gas contributes to the internal energy of a newly formed planet. This has led to a range of formation scenarios from ‘cold’ to ‘hot’ start models5–8. For a planet of a given mass, these initial conditions govern its subsequent evolution in luminosity and radius. Except… Expand
