Multi-planet Star System Discovered

Scientists believe they have discovered a multi-planetary solar system around another star. They believe the star HD 10180 in the constellation of Hydrus may have five planets orbiting round the star. All the planets will most likely be gas giants like Jupiter so will not be supporting life forms. The star is 127 light years away so don't go volunteering to visit it. It was discovered by a group of scientists led by Christophe Lovis of Geneva University using the European Southern Observatory (ESO). For more on the story, read the BBC.
