100 billion planets similar to Earth

Researchers have developed new ways to discover specific planets orbiting around its stars far enough to be suitable for life, these orbits are called “Habitable Zone”.

It is difficult to notice these planets because of their relatively small size compared to the star they orbit around.

Scientists from the University of Auckland said that the integration of the information from the NASA telescope with a technique called gravitational microlensing, which relies on the use of mechanical telescopes to detect the optical aberrations from stars which orbits around it small planets, enables us to detect small Earth-like planets in suitable circumstellar.

They have estimated the number of these planets in more than 100 billion planets in the Milky Way galaxy.

scientists hope to use a network of telescopes deployed through Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network, three of which have been deployed in Chile, South Africa, Australia, one in Hawaii and one in Texas, and thus collecting data from this network and others as well as Kepler measurements to see the small planets revolving around the stars on a distance that supports the existence of life on them.
