A group of space scientists found the oldest star in the universe. It's more than two times older than our sun. This star has five planets, but they are too close to their sun for living. The scientists say this solar system likely formed when the universe started, 13.8 billion years ago. Our solar system is much younger, around 4.5 billion years.

The scientists discovered this old star and its planets using a spacecraft called Kepler from NASA. They studied it for four years. The star is now called Kepler-444, and it's in the Lyre constellation. Astronomers from Europe, Australia, and the United States worked together on this discovery.
