Location, Location, Location – NASA finds 10 New “Earth-Like” Planets! [Video]

Yesterday our neighbors down at NASA announced they had found 219 new planets:

10 of the planets are rocky, Earth-like planets that are in the so-called “Goldilocks zone”, not too hot…not too cold…just right for the possibility of containing water!

NASA’s statement said:

“This carefully measured catalogue is the foundation for directly answering one of astronomy’s most compelling questions – how many planets like our Earth are in the galaxy?” said Susan Thompson, a research scientist at the SETI Institute, which searches for signs of extra-terrestrial life.

And, in a statement, Nasa said: “There are now 4,034 planet candidates identified by Kepler. Of which, 2,335 have been verified as exoplanets. Of roughly 50 near-Earth size habitable zone candidates detected by Kepler, more than 30 have been verified.”
