Hubble finds planet orbiting pair of stars

Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, and a trick of nature, have confirmed the existence of a planet orbiting two stars in the system OGLE-2007-BLG-349, located 8,000 light-years away towards the center of our galaxy. The Hubble observations represent the first time such a three-body system has been confirmed using the gravitational microlensing technique. from Latest Science News -- ScienceDaily http://ift.tt/2d2O7bg via IFTTT
