NASA today announced it has found another solar system just like ours with EIGHT planets… some of which could potentially support ALIEN life.

The historic discovery was made by new scientific analysis of data obtained by the Kepler space telescope, which is scouring the galaxy for planets like Earth.

Paul Hertz, Astrophysics Division director at NASA Headquarters in Washington, said: “We have found for the first time an eigth planet in a distant planetary system in the Kepler 90 system – this ties Kepler 90 with own solar system for having the most known planets.

“Kepler 90 is the first star to host as many planets as our own.”

The new planet – Kepler 90i – is a small rocky planet, but very close to the sun which is hotter than ours, and is 2,500 light years from Earth.

It would be scorching hot and unable to hold life itself, although some planets in the system may be able to.

A team of NASA scientists who have scoured the universe looking for planets that could potentially hold alien life today made the historic announcement in a briefing at 6pm British time.

It was to unveil the latest findings of the Kepler space telescope mission.

Previous announcements have included the discovery of several earth-like rocky planets that were at the right distance from their star to potentially house alien life.

The team has been searching for such planets since 2009, finding around 30 Earth-sized planets orbiting within the ‘habitable zones’ of their stars and another 20 ‘possibles’.

The space agency teamed up with Google to use artificial intelligence to search for exoplanets, which could support extraterrestrial organisms.
