NASA’S KEPLER AND ESA’S GAIA SPACE TELESCOPES DISCOVER 44 NEW EXOPLANETS

Scientists have discovered a trove of forty-four planets in solar systems beyond our own in one go, dwarfing the usual number of confirmations from extrasolar surveys.

The findings will improve existing models of solar systems, and may help researchers investigate exoplanet atmospheres.

Novel techniques developed to validate the find could accelerate the confirmation of more extrasolar planet candidates.

Astronomers pooled data from NASA’s Kepler and the ESA’s Gaia space telescopes. They confirmed existence of these 44 exoplanets and described various details about them.

A portion of the findings yield some surprising characteristics.
