Representations made to a planetary system of five world basically revealed that there is a planet for every star in the galaxy.
“Basically, there is a planet for every star”, is what Jonathan Swift said the California Institute of Technology after publishing a study that says that the Milky Way has at least a hundred billion planets .
“There are at least 100 billion planets in the galaxy, just in our galaxy,” says John Johnson, assistant professor of planetary astronomy at Caltech and a coauthor of the study, which was recently accepted for publication in the journal Astrophysical Journal . “That’s amazing.”
This conclusion is the result of the study of a planetary system , which contains five worlds , called Kepler 32, which is located 915 light years from Earth and was discovered by the Kepler space telescope at NASA.
These are sized planet similar to Earth and is located close to the star, which is a red dwarf, a type of star that occupies 75 percent of a hundred billion stars in the galaxy has.
Such planetary systems are common in our galaxy, according to the observations of Kepler. But they are really different from our solar system, as red dwarfs are much cooler and smaller than our Sun
This only shows that our solar system is an extremely rare formation in the galaxy, the researchers said in a NASA statement.
