NASA Discovers 10 New Planets Like Earth, That Could Host Alien Life

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) has discovered 219 new suspected planets beyond our solar system. 10 out of these planets are rocky and could potentially have liquid water and support life. All the data comes from the space agency’s long-running Kepler exoplanet-hunting mission. NASA has launched the Kepler telescope in 2009 and it has already discovered 4,034 potential exoplanets.

Interestingly, these new 10 planets may have the same size and temperature as Earth has. According to the Business Insider, Susan Thompson, a Kepler research scientist at the SETI Institute said: “We have taken our telescope and we have counted up how many planets are similar to the Earth in this part of the sky. We said, ‘how many planets there are similar to Earth?’ With the data I have, I can now make that count.”

She further added: “We’re going to determine how common other planets are. Are there other places we could live in the galaxy that we don’t yet call home?”

Are We Alone In The Universe?

As per reported by The Guardian, Kepler program scientist Mario Perez said in a conference, “An important question for us is, ‘Are we alone?’” Perez further added: “Maybe Kepler today is telling us indirectly … that we are not alone.”

Countless Earth-Like Planets

Researchers suspect that there may be countless Earth-like planets which are waiting to be found. Kepler only covered 0.25% of the night sky and we need 400 Keplers to cover the whole sky.

With the help of the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite or Tess, NASA will continue its search in Galaxy as the Tess will spend two years observing the 200,000 brightest nearby stars for Earth-like worlds.
