    hello neighbor

    Australasian researchers have helped discover a new planet in the Milky Way, and they believe it's just a matter of time before more are discovered. The gaseous planet is about 1000 times the size of Earth and is about halfway to the center of the galaxy, or about 25,000 light years away, researchers said Tuesday. The project used a little-known technique called micro-lensing -- using the gravitational pull of a star to act as a giant lens -- to help astronomers to look for new planets. Its incredible we are still finding planets in our own galaxy. Just imagine what exists in other systems. If we happen to be on one planet, in a galaxy of thousands of stars, who is to say that another galaxy cant support life. And what if the Discovery Channel had already been there........
