Astronomers discover the closest parallel to our own solar system yet found

A stunning solar system is discovered.

A major discovery from the team of astronomers in Europe:

“A team of European astronomers has discovered a second solar system, the closest parallel to our own solar system yet found. It includes seven exoplanets orbiting a star with the small rocky planets close to their host star and the gas giant planets further away. The system was hidden within the wealth of data from the Kepler Space Telescope.”
