Solar system like ours discovered

London: A solar system arranged just like our own has been discovered a thousand light years from the Earth, the Daily Mail reported Thursday.

The planets, captured by the Kepler space mission, line up in a way similar to those in our solar systems, with their orbital planes aligned with the equator of their Sun.

Roberto Sanchis-Ojeda and colleagues at Massachusetts Institute of Technology analysed their transits over spots on the Sun-like star Kepler-30 and found they mirrored those round our Sun.

There are only three planets in the alien solar system, compared to the eight in ours, but it is the first time one with the same alignment as our own has been found.

The observation described in Nature sheds light on the conditions that determine the architecture of a planetary system, the newspaper added.
