ASTRONOMERS DISCOVER EARTH-LIKE PLANET OUTSIDE SOLAR SYSTEM
Astronomers have discovered the most Earth-like planet outside our Solar System, pictured in an artist's rendering, an exoplanet with a radius only 50% larger than the Earth and capable of having liquid water, announced by the Eupropean Southern Observatory on April 25, 2007. Using the ESO 3.6-m telescope, a team of Swiss, French and Portuguese scientists discovered the planet about 5 times the mass of the Earth that orbits a red dwarf, already known to harbor a Neptune-mass planet.
