Gravitational microlensing finds second planet

05/24/2005 3:45 PM

Astronomers at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts, US, have found a second planet beyond our solar system using a technique know gravitational microlensing. Based on a theory by Einstein, put forward in 1905, the technique reads bending of light as caused by the gravitational pull of large solar bodies.
