Nasa – NASA discovers 715 new exoplanets; Kepler sent to find habitable planets #Space #videos #NASA #News



The US space agency NASA says it has made the largest exoplanetary discovery ever.

The agency says the Kepler Telescope team has discovered 715 new planets outside the solar system. The new findings have doubled the number of planets known to humanity. 95-percent of these planets are smaller than Neptune and only four of them are orbiting their suns’ habitable zones. But scientists say they are less likely to harbor life. NASA launched Kepler in 2009 with the mission of finding earth-like planets. To date, the telescope has helped find nine-hundred-sixty-one exoplanets.
