'Super-Earth': New planet is 'best candidate' to support life beyond solar system

Lynsey_ADMIN_Lynsey_ADMIN_ Administrator
A US scientist says the discovery of "super-Earth" is "the most exciting exoplanet I've seen in the past decade".

Scientists searching for evidence of life beyond Earth say a newly discovered planet could be the most promising candidate they have found so far.

The so-called "super-Earth" is 39 light years away, outside the solar system, and, like Earth, thought to be around five billion years old - long enough for life to have evolved.

A light year is the distance light travels in a year - nearly six trillion miles.
