NASA Finds 9 Planets Where Aliens Might Live
NASA scientists have discovered nine planets that could be home to alien life among 1,284 newly-validated planets located outside our solar system.
In the recent batch of planets discovered by NASA’s Kepler space telescope, nearly 550 could be rocky planets like Earth, based on their size. Nine of these Earth-size planets orbit in their sun’s habitable zone, which is the distance from a star where orbiting planets can have surface temperatures that allow liquid water to pool. With the addition of these nine, 21 known exoplanets could be suitable for alien inhabitants.
