NASA has discovered eighth planet in distant star system

NASA’s Kepler space telescope has discovered an eighth planet in a distant star system called Kepler 90 – the first time a faraway star has been found to have the same number of planets orbiting it as our own sun.

Although the Kepler 90 solar system is not new, the eighth planet, Kepler 90i, is, after it was found using AI software in a groundbreaking project between Google and NASA.

The discovery of a system similar to our own raises hopes of finding alien life elsewhere in the universe.

The Kepler-90 planets have a similar configuration to our solar system, with small planets orbiting close to their star and the larger planets found farther away.

According to NASA, this confirms for the first time that distant star systems can be home to ‘families as large as our own.’

The new planet, estimated to be about 30 percent larger than Earth, is ‘not a place you’d like to visit,’ said Andrew Vanderburg, astronomer and NASA Sagan Postdoctoral Fellow at The University of Texas, Austin.

‘It is probably rocky, and doesn’t have a thick atmosphere’. And, temperatures at the surface are ‘scorching.’

According to Vanderburg, the average surface temperature is likely around 800 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Kepler planet hunting satellite has been searching the stars for distant worlds using Google’s AI system, which used machine learning to ‘find’ planets in the Kepler data with up to 96 percent accuracy.

Neural networks can be trained on huge amounts of data to determine the difference between objects with great accuracy, the team explained in the teleconference.

Much like an AI can learn to spot the difference between cats and dogs, it can spot the difference between patterns associated with planets, and other types of patterns in the cosmos that could be false positives.

‘After showing our model 15,000 signals, the neural network learned how to distinguish patterns from actual planets from patterns that are caused by other objects,’ said Christopher Shallue, senior software engineer at Google AI in Mountain View, California.

He worked on the system as part of his ’20 per cent time’ at the company, where employees are allowed to work on anything they want.

We used our model to identify two new planets from a set of 670 stars,’ Shallue explained.

‘One of these two planets is called Kepler 80g.

‘The planet we are focusing on today is called Kepler 90i, which is the eighth planet in its star system.’

‘This is a really exciting discovery, and we consider it to be a success,’ in the use of neural networks in the search for distant worlds, the expert explained.

The star system sits roughly 2,545 light-years from Earth in the constellation Draco, and of the new planets found, Kepler 90i is the ‘smallest of the bunch.’

The new planet orbits its star once every 14.4 days.

But, all of the planets in this system ‘tightly’ orbit their star, which is thought to be cooler than our own sun, meaning their orbital periods are relatively short.

Before the latest AI-guided results, ‘Kepler 90 was tied with Trappist-1, with 7 planets each,’ says Jessie Dotson, Kepler project scientist at NASA’s Ames Research Center in California’s Silicon Valley.

‘But now, it ties with our own system with the most known number of planets’ around a star.

The Kepler 90 system was first discovered back in 2013. It was the first seven-planet system identified with the telescope.

But, the eighth planet remained undetected for years – until Google’s AI picked up on its ‘weak’ signal.

The AI uses light readings from distant stars to identify potential signs of a planet – and, after training on thousands of previously vetted signals, it was able to spot the previously missed patterns of the elusive eight planet.

‘We get lots of false positives of planets, but also potentially more real planets,’ Vanderburg said.

‘It’s like sifting through rocks to find jewels. If you have a finer sieve, then you will catch more rocks, but you might catch more jewels as well.’

The latest discovery is not just a planet candidate; according to NASA, the latest exoplanet has been confirmed to be ‘almost certainly,’ an exoplanet, with 1 in 10,000 false positive probability.

While the discovery is exciting, this particular system isn’t the most promising for the possibility of hosting life.

All of its planets are packed close to the star.

Nibiru Planet X latest Updates Breaking News

There are now five different lines of observational evidence pointing to the existence of Planet Nine,” said Konstantin Batygin, a planetary astrophysicist at Caltech in Pasadena.

Some of these clues relate to the gravitational tug of Planet Nine, which appears to be disturbing the distant Kuiper Belt, which is made up of icy objects and stretches from Neptune out into deep space.

Its believed Planet Nine is a “super-Earth”, the name for a type of large world which appears to be very common in the universe.

Doom-mongers have consistently claimed that a hidden world called Nibiru will crash into Earth.

Nasa has denied this theory, previously writing: “The planet in question, Niburu, doesn’t exist, so there will be no collision.

“The story of Niburu has been around for years (as has the ‘days of darkness’ tale) and is periodically recycled into new apocalyptic fables.”

However, it’s feared Planet Nine will eventually destroy the solar system by causing a devastating “death dance”.

It could one day hurtle through our solar system, sending planets “pinballing” into outer space or plunging into the Sun.

There is evidence that NASA knows where the X-Nibiru Planet is located and is monitoring with the collaboration of the Vatican.

The real story of Nibiru (Planet X)

First we go once again back to the creation story of Mesopotamia

The SUMERIANS always described their Gods as planets starting with Pluto, then Neptune, Uranus, etc., as if they were seeing the planets from a heavenly body (or spacecraft ?) that was entering our solar system from the outside.

The Sumerian seal (below), with the planets Mercury, Venus, Earth, Moon, Mars, Unknown ( about size of Uranus/Neptune), Jupiter, Saturn, Indeterminate (about size of Mercury), Uranus, Neptune, Pluto.

The SUMERIANS also mentioned a “twelfth” planet called “NIBIRU”, one whose elliptical orbit brought it close to Earth for a brief period about every 3,600 years.

The Sumerians and later also the Babylonians mention about a long time ago in Ancient times in which Nibiru (Marduk), until that time a stranger in our solar system, had a fight in heaven with Tiamat and Kingu. At that time, millions of years ago, the satellites of Nibiru (Marduk) collapsed with Tiamat (a planet at least two times the mass of Earth) and broke it in 2 parts.

In accordance to the theory of Zecharia Sitchin and others, the 2 parts of Tiamat were forced to another orbit around the Sun, One part was broken in small parts and are now called The Asteroid Belt (between Mars and Jupiter) and Asteroids Meteorites and Comets. The other part was forced into his new orbit between Venus and Mars and became the Earth. Kingu became the Moon of the “new planet” Earth. Nibiru was forced into an elliptical orbit around the Sun and its new orbit was from that time on a cycle of 3,600 years around the Sun.

Before I unfold my theory about the timeline of the above events and what happened afterwards I like to honor first the writer of “The Earth Chronicles” Zecharia Sitchin for his great in depth study of the Sumerian and Babylonian history and his theory of which most I agree.
