NASA’s Kepler mission has verified the existence of 1,284 new planets, marking the single largest finding of planets to date. The newly-discovered planets include 9 that are rocky planets like Earth and orbit in their sun’s habitable zone, which means they could theoretically be home to life.

Ellen Stofan, chief scientist at NASA Headquarters said that this announcement more than doubles the number of confirmed planets and this gives us hope that somewhere out there, around a star much like ours, we can eventually discover another Earth.
