31345575 story Nearby Star May Have More Planets Than Our Solar System 102 Posted by Unknown Lamer on Friday April 06, 2012 @05:08PM from the told-you-space-lizards-were-real dept. The Bad Astronomer writes "HD 10180 is a near-twin of the Sun about 130 light years away. It's known to have at least six planets orbiting it, but a new analysis of the data shows clear indications of three more, for a total of nine! This means HD 10180 has more planets than our solar system. And whether you think Pluto is a planet or not, all nine of these aliens worlds have masses larger than Earth's, putting them firmly in the 'planet' category."
