    Hello Iban3z. This is a very interesting news story. 715 planets around 305 stars. This is just over 2 planets per star, and some appear to be in the habitable zones for life as we know it. We may never know if there is life on these planets, but knowing that they are there is a great foundation to build on. Thanks for finding and sharing this link with us iban3z, and best of regards.

    NASA should sell the naming rights. I would pay to have a planet named after me.

    It's very exciting to know about the discovery of other planets and stars far from here <3 Inaf, (Torino's astronomy observatory), has discovered really far new galaxies recently, as written in an italian astronomy article: Astronomia: scoperte due nuove remotissime galassie
    For who don't understand it, the article says that some scientists from all over the world, have discovered 2 really far galaxies, the most weak sources of light ever remarked within the first billion years since the origin of the universe. Eros Venezzella, (an italian researcher), said this: " taking advantage of the effect of the gravitational lenses and the potentiality of the Large Binocular Telescope, we can discover a very far and almost uncharted part of the Universe" , but How can we find the furthest galaxies of the universe? "With a big telescope, obviously. But if they are too far for the most modern telescopes, we can't do anything right? Wrong, we can use two telescopes. The second one isn't on Earth, It's not made of glass or lenses but it's made of a lot of matter, sometimes dark matter. A great cluster of galaxies is needed to deflect and gather the weak light of really far galaxies lined up between us and the fortuitous gravitational lense, taking advantage of the theory of general relativity made by Albert Einstein. Marco Galliani (another italian researcher) said. "This astral bodies are extremely weak and inaccesible with our actual telescopes. We can see further things taking advantage of the gravitational lense effect, as happened in our discovery", Eros Vanzella tells us, from Bologna's observatory, who guided an international team to find and "certificate"-thanks to some spectroscopic surveys- two ancient and weak galaxies, born when the Universe was "only" 880 million years, that is the 6 percent of its actual age, estimated of about 13,6 billion years.
    I actually made the complete translation of the document, , excuse me if I did some english grammatical mistakes!!
