Two New Planets Found

Scientists have found two new planets (a Jupiter and Saturn mass) around a star half the size of our Sun. The duo was found by scientists at the Ohio State University using a technique called gravitational microlensing which has previously found four other planets.

The planets orbit the star OGLE-2006-BLG-109 and are designated OGLE-2006-BLG-109-b and c. A description can be found here.
