CNN: (Newser) – Scientists have spotted five new planets orbiting stars in our galaxy that are close to the size of Earth and are located in a “habitable zone,” according to researchers. They’re the right distance from their stars that make the existence of life-essential liquid water possible. The planets are among a treasure trove of more than 1,000 new planets located by the space-traveling Kepler telescope. Another 49 planets beyond our galaxy—ranging from twice the size of earth to as large as Jupiter—are also located in habitable zones. The findings, as well as the promise that many more planets remain to be discovered, boost scientists’ hope that life has gained another foothold somewhere else in the stars, notes CNN.

“It’s very likely that life is common in our galaxy,” said William Borucki, chief scientist of the Kepler mission at NASA’s Ames Research Center in California.
