Sensational Solar System Discovery

Watch this and other space videos at Amazing news from ESO. Astronomers working with the super planet finding HARPS instrument at the La Silla Observatory in Chile, have discovered a remarkable extrasolar planetary system that has some striking similarities to our own Solar System. At least five planets are orbiting the Sun-like star HD 10180, and the regular pattern of their orbits is similar to that observed for our neighbouring planets. One of the new extrasolar worlds could be only 1.4 times the mass of the Earth, making it the least massive exoplanet ever found.
