Kepler Has Discovered Over 1,000 Alien Planets

"Today astronomers believe there are planets around almost every star in the night sky.
And that perhaps one in ten stars have Earth-sized planets that orbit in the zone where life could exist.
That comes to billions of planets in just our own galaxy."

These words are taken from the video below about the Kepler mission. NASA's Kepler spacecraft has produced data confirming the discovery of more than 1,000 alien planets since it's launch in March of 2009. It's goal is to search for Earth-like planets throughout the galaxy, but it can also be an unexpected opportunity to discover intelligent life unlike the life we know on Earth.
