The system, 100 light years away, has six planets, all about the same size. They've barely changed since its formation up to 12 billion years ago.
These undisturbed conditions make it ideal for learning how these worlds formed and whether they host life.
The research has been published in the scientific journal, Nature.
Dr Rafael Luque, of the University of Chicago, who led the research described HD110067 as "the perfect solar system".
"It is ideal for studying how planets are created, because this solar system didn't have the chaotic beginnings ours did and has been undisturbed since its formation."
