Researchers Find 32 New Planets Outside Of Our Solar System

October 19, 2009

(ChattahBox) – An estimated 32 new planets have been found outside of our solar system this week, many that appear to have several similarities in size and mass to Earth.

The new findings, made by a team with the European Southern Observatory, have raised hopes further that habitable planets may be found.

“I’m pretty confident that there are Earth-like planets everywhere,” Stephane Udry of the University of Geneva said in a web-conference.

“Nature doesn’t like a vacuum. If there is space to put a planet there, there will be a planet there.”

The fact that 32 planets were found at the same time points to a huge advance in the procedures that lead to such discoveries, and marks an all time record.
