Does this mean it’s going back in time?

Retrograde Orbit Planet

For the past five years, astronomers have been trying to figure out why this planet’s rotation would be going “backwards.” Apparently, in physics, every planetary body in a star system should be rotating in the same direction. So, this little mystery had them baffled. Obviously, the real question here is whether or not this world is going backwards in time. This might mean we’ve found the fountain of youth! Perhaps if we travel there we can turn back the clock on our own aging and become young again. I know one or two people who could really use this.
