What is the smallest known Earth-like planet?


Scientist recently discovered the smallest earth like planet known to humankind. An international team of astronomers used the mircrolensing technique to find this new planet.

The planet by the name of OGLE-2005-BLG-390Lb is not in our solar system, has five times the Earth’s mass and is around 25,000 light years away in the Milky Way. It orbits a red dwarf star. The planet is very cold and unlikely to have any life. It takes around 10 years for it to orbit the red dwarf star, which is not like our sun in the fact that it is smaller than our sun and much cooler.
