Allien Solar System Found But Their Arrangement is tighter

Filled under:

Solar systems are everywhere, but this one is like our own. According to the researchers, the circling of the planets around the HD 10180 is in regular pattern, though their arrangement is comparatively more compact. The discovery marks the highest tally of alien worlds that have ever been spotted around a single star.

The researchers point out that, the orbit of the five planets around the HD 10180 is in regular pattern, much the same as our own solar system, though comparatively their arrangement is tighter.

"We have found what is most likely the system with the most planets yet discovered," astronomer Christophe Lovis, lead author of the study, said in a statement Tuesday. "This remarkable discovery also highlights the fact that we are now entering a new era in exoplanet research: the study of complex planetary systems and not just of individual planets.
