The newfound exoplanets, known as HD 7924c and HD 7924d, are "super Earths" with masses 7.9 and 6.4 times greater than that of Earth, researchers said. They orbit the star HD 7924, which lies just 54 light-years from the sun.

New photos of Pluto and its largest moon, Charon, by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft have revealed tantalizing hints at surface features on the dwarf planet, including signs of a polar ice cap. See the photos from new Horizons here.
