Fourth planet found in distant star system

Los Angeles -- U.S. astronomers say a giant planet found outside our solar system is highlighting the remarkable resemblances between a distant planetary system and our own.

"We decided to discuss among ourselves what happened," Hill told the Dallas Morning News. "That was the first time we agreed to do that or had been willing to do that. We had all kept silent for 47 years."
