HD 98800 is a multiple star system about 150 light years from Earth -- right in our section of the Milky Way Galaxy. For years it has been known that HD 98800 consists of two pairs of double stars, with one pair surrounded by a disk of dust. Recent data from the Earth-trailing Spitzer Space Telescope in infrared light indicate that the dust disk has gaps that appear consistent with being cleared by planets orbiting in the disk. If so, one planet appears to be orbiting at a distance similar to Mars of our own Solar System. Pictured above is an artist's drawing of how the HD 98800 system might appear to a nearby observer.

What a joke.. we have a country with a universe that has a Sun and 89 planets known as the Jumbo Cabinet of Sri Lanka around it, not a big surprise for us. No universe can beat that either.

# Minister - This goes to prove a god, any so called god had nothing to do with this. Per the believers the earth is 6000 years old. This star system is 150 light years from Earth. Just imagine it, one light year = 9460730472580800 metres (exactly). Imagine how long the light from these two stars take to get to earth. Then you will realize how immense the universe is. And there is no heaven up there at all.
