1284 New Planets Discovered

The Kepler mission has discovered 1,284 planets, the most exoplanets announced at one time, according to Princeton associate research scholar Timothy Morton during a NASA press conference. This more than doubles the number of previously confirmed planets from Kepler.

''Kepler is the first telescope for detecting small rocky planets in the habitable zone of their stars,'' said Paul Hertz, Astrophysics Division director at NASA. ''Thanks to Kepler, we know exoplanets are common, most stars in our galaxy have planetary systems and they are potentially habitable planets. Knowing this is the first step to addressing whether we are alone in the universe.''

So, just how many exoplanets do we estimate are out there in the galaxy for NASA to study and discover? Tens of billions of Earth-sized habitable planets, Batalha said. In the future, NASA wants to increase its understanding from the habitable zone to habitable environments and living worlds.

''With this discovery, we're going to change the way we see the universe,'' Batalha said. ''You'll look up at the sky and see pinpoints of light and think of them as planetary systems, not just stars. We're going to know how life manifests itself in the galaxy.''
