    'Super Earth' Discovered at Nearby Star

    Neat!

    In a discovery that has left one expert stunned, European astronomers have found one of the smallest planets known outside our solar system, a world about 14 times the mass of our own around a star much like the Sun.

    .....

    Still, the discovery is a significant advance in technology: No planet so small has ever been detected around a normal star. And the finding reveals a solar system more similar to our own than anything found so far.

    Thanks for the article, Tombstone. We're finding many planets outside our solar system, one day I'm sure we'll find one with life.
