Today NASA and Google found another planet in the Kepler-90 solar system, making it a solar system with eight planets, just like ours.
According to Business Insider:
That finding is due to the discovery of a new planet, Kepler-90i — a hot, rocky orb circling a sun-like star called Kepler-90, which is 2,545 light-years from Earth. The planet was found using a machine-learning system from Google, which was put to work sifting through data from NASA's Kepler spacecraft...
It appears to be the third planet from the sun-like star, and orbits roughly every 14 days. The temperature on Kepler-90i surface is likely around 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit.
"Kepler-90i is not a place I'd like to go visit," Andrew Vanderburg, an astronomer at the University of Texas at Austin who helped find the planet, said during a press briefing.
Vanderburg was aided in the work by Google AI software engineer Christopher Shallue.
