Ten new planets that could sustain life have just been discovered outside our solar system, NASA announced Monday.
The newfound planets are the size of Earth and circle stars similar in size to the sun – meaning they could be the right size and temperature to have life on them.
The new findings were part of a four-year search conducted by the Kepler telescope, which has detected a total of 49 planets located in the Goldilocks zone.
“Are we alone? Maybe Kepler today has told us indirectly, although we need confirmation, that we are probably not alone,” Kepler scientist Mario Perez said.
