Nasa is to host a major press conference on a “discovery beyond our solar system.” The event will see the revelation of major information about exoplanets, or planets that orbit stars other than our sun, according to a release. It made no further mention of the details of what would be revealed.
Exoplanets are the major hope for life elsewhere in the universe, since many have been found that resemble our own Earth and could have the building blocks of life. More of them are being discovered all the time.
A team of international scientists found a further 54 potential planets, meaning that in all the researchers might have discovered a full 114 planets.
And at least some of those might be like Earth, and able to support life, the researchers have said.
