NASA Discovered New Planets like Earth

NASA's Kepler Telescope Detects 150 Earth-Sized Worlds.

NASA Discovered New PlanetsJust outside of our solar system, NASA has discovered more than 100 new Earth-like planets, sparkling new hopes for those interested in extraterrestrial life.

The agency said that its Kepler spacecraft has gathered six weeks of data on more than 156,000 stars in search for signs of planets orbiting them.

The data revealed five new solar systems within the Milky Way as well as 700 bodies that could be new planets, among which 140 are considered to be similar to our planet, meaning that their composition could support the development of simple life forms.

Prior to NASA’s report, about 450 planets had been found outside the solar system over the last 15 years. Yet most would be inhospitable for known forms of life and have very high surface temperatures.

The Kepler probe was launched in April 200,9 and in June reached its position for monitoring space outside the solar system. The spacecraft is on a four-year mission to examine the structure and diversity of planetary systems in the Milky Way using a 95-megapixel camera.

“While an exhaustive study remains to be done, the implication is that many planetary systems have multiple planets,” William Borucki, the mission's principle investigator, told Mail Online.

Sorry, I put your link in but must have not saved it. It is now in and listed in the upper blogroll in the sidebar. Sometime because by blog list are so long I don't show all of them and one must hit the show all button at bottom of list to see their link. I must do this because of loading time. I really am sorry, but glad you brought it to my attention.

its amazing that a earth like planet was found its worth spending money on technology to explore possible life because it would be selfish of us to think were the only life. Please prove to every one that were alien to.
