VIDEO: 42 Alien Planets Found -- Reality or Hoax..?

Forty two (42) alien planets have been discovered by a team of amateur astronomers, according to a new report out by, and the discovery also includes a Jupiter-size world that could potentially be habitable, by going through data collected by the NASA Kepler spacecraft.

According to details; 40 volunteers with the crowd-sourcing Planet Hunters project found the new planet candidates, including 15 planets which might probably have the signs of life and PH2 b, a huge planet compared to the size of Jupiter that the team confirmed to be in the habitable zone of its parent star.

The group of amateur researchers is now awaiting confirmation from professional astronomers, according to a Live Science report on Friday, January 11, 2013.

Chris Lintott, an English astrophysicist at the Department of Physics in Oxford University and works atZooniverse, explained that “These are planet candidates that slipped through the net, being missed by professional astronomers and rescued by volunteers in front of their web browsers. It’s remarkable to think that absolutely anyone can discover a planet.”
