>>Fifty new exoplanets discovered. <<
[link to www.bbc.co.uk]

Astronomers using a telescope in Chile have discovered 50 previously unknown exoplanets.

The bumper haul of new worlds includes 16 "super-Earths" - planets with a great mass than our own, but below those of gas giants such as Jupiter.

One of these super-Earths orbits inside the habitable zone - the region around a star where conditions could be hospitable to life.

"Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves."
