MASSIVE ASTEROID BELTS DISCOVERED AROUND VEGA

Vega is famous for being the fifth-brightest star in global skies, but it may soon also become famous for sporting two asteroid belts and, by extension, an entire system of exoplanets.

This discovery was made by astronomers using data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and ESA's Herschel Space Observatory -- both orbital telescopes that observe the Universe in infrared light.

Interesting that the structure parallels our own solar system.
