Earth-like planet discovered outside solar system

Astronomers have discovered an Earth-like planet outside the Solar System, 'shortening' the odds that alien life could exist. A new study of the planet, which orbits a star 500 light years away, has shown that its density is similar to Earth's, indicating it is a solid rocky world.

Known as COROT-7b, it was discovered in February this year by the European space telescope COROT, which had been tracking the star it circles.
