Astronomers Find a Whopping 32 New Planets
WASHINGTON — European astronomers have found 32 new planets outside our solar system, adding evidence to the theory that the universe has many places where life could develop.
Scientists using the European Southern Observatory telescope didn't find any planets quite the size of Earth or any that seemed habitable or even unusual. But their announcement increased the number of planets discovered outside the solar system to more than 400.
I personally find this news promising. The more new planets we find, the more we have a chance of finding intelligent life somewhere in the Universe. Seeing there is none here on Earth, it would be refreshing to find it somewhere.
Seriously though, what are your thoughts? Is there other life in the Universe? Is this life intelligent? More intelligent than us? Or, are we alone?
Curious as to what others think.
