Caption: Landscape of an alien world. Computer artwork of the view from the surface of a alien (extrasolar) planet orbiting the star Beta Pictoris (orange). A moon is also seen at upper centre. In 1995 it was announced that possible evidence for the existence of a planet around the star Beta Pictoris had been discovered. Fluctuations were noted, which may have been caused by a planet passing in front of it. Beta Pictoris, 50 light years from Earth, is known to be surrounded by a large disc of gas and silicate dust, and is thought to be a solar system in the making.
