“The Kepler-90 star system 2,545 light-years from Earth, is like a mini-version
of our solar system. You have small planets inside and big planets outside,
but everything is scrunched in much closer.”
- Andrew Vanderburg, Ph.D., Astronomer, Univ. of Texas-Austin


NASA Kepler: “The newly-discovered 8th planet in the Kepler-90 system is dubbed "Kepler-90i" —
a sizzling hot, rocky planet that orbits its star once every 14.4 days. This 8th planet was found
using machine learning from Google. Machine learning is an approach to artificial intelligence
in which computers “learn.” In this case, computers learned to identify planets by finding
in Kepler data instances where the telescope recorded signals from planets beyond
our solar system, known as exoplanets.”

So crazy what these scientists are able to do! Consider this: 1 light year is 6 trillion miles.......this is 2,545 light years away! It's gonna be just a matter of time until we discover something so great it will change the way we think of the universe.

Already have imo., dark matter. Whatever it is and however much there is, and whatever it means to the universe.
