A massive world 2,500 times the size of Earth has been discovered by an international team of astronomers.

Named MOA-2011-BLG-322, the planet is around eight times the size of Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system.

Astronomers believe it orbits a star 25,000 light-years away and has a mass that is one third that of our sun.

The giant planet, reported by Ian O’Neill at Discovery News, was found using a technique known as ‘microlensing’.

Microlensing uses Albert Einstein’s theory of general relatively which suggests what we perceive as the force of gravity actually arises from the curvature of space and time.

Einstein believed that although Earth appears to be pulled towards the sun, it is in fact the shape of space-time around the sun that changes the way Earth moves.
