NASA’s Kepler Mission has reportedly discovered three exoplanets, planets that orbit a star in a solar system other than that of Earth.
These newly-found exoplanets have been designated the names- KIO-961-1, KIO-961-2 and KIO-961-3 which orbit around their star ‘KOI-961’.
The KOI-961 star is a red dwarf with a diameter one-sixth that of our sun, making it just 70 percent bigger than Jupiter in our solar system.
NASA had launched Kepler Mission on 23rd April 2009 to discover new planets revolving around the stars outside our solar system in the universe.
“NASA has discovered the smallest solar system ever...,” said Divyadarshan Purohit, a space scientist.
It is believed that this discovery substantiated the possibility of presence of aliens in the space.
Divyadarshan Purohit further remarked, “The ways in which new planets are being found consistently, the possibility of life on other planets have been increased. I do believe Kepler will disclose many secrets of the universe and in the near future we might be able to communicate with the aliens.”
Prior to the discovery of these planets, only six other planets were previously discovered outside our solar system through Kepler missio
