Shocking Announcement Made by NASA
A couple of days ago NASA announced a press conference in order to inform us in regards to a recent discovery. Since then many speculations were fired on the internet, and some people thought that alien live could be confirmed.
Unfortunately NASA did not confirmed the existence of alien life but they come with huge news, they discovered more than 1200 new planets, that could house alien life. So far, they didn’t released at one time such a big number of new planets. They stated that around 550 planets could be rocky planets, just like Earth, based on their size. Nine of them are also in the sun’s habitable zone therefore they could have a temperature that allow liquid water to pool. Here’s the statement of Ellen Stofan, chief scientist at NASA:
“This gives us hope that somewhere out there, around a star much like ours, we can eventually discover another Earth,”
These discoveries were made by Kepler Space Telescope, also called NASA’s planet hunter, launched 7 years ago in 2009.
Since the astronomers discovered so many new planets, they now think it is possible that there may be at least one planet orbiting every star in the Universe. A NASA spokesman said: “When Kepler was launched in March 2009, scientists did not know how common planets were outside our solar system. Thanks to Kepler’s treasure trove of discoveries, astronomers now believe there may be at least one planet orbiting every star in the sky.”
