Planets have been born, lived and died long before Earth even existed. Now astronomers have detected the ruins of ancient planets around two unusual white dwarf stars, including an Earth-like world that existed almost 10 billion years ago.It’s easy to forget our place in the universe, but planets have been born, lived and died long before Earth even existed.
