CAMBRIDGE, MA - JANUARY 6: This artist's concept image, showing the farthest planet ever detected, was released by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics on January 6, 2003 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The planet named OGLE TR-56b, which is 5,000 light-years away, was discovered using a new technique that measures the minute decrease in light from a star as a planet transverses its face. Scientist hope this new technique will enable them to find more earth sized planets in the future. (Photo by David A. Aguilar, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics/Getty Images)
