Hi All,

I'm a new member so I don't know how to link a page as of yet.

I found on under the science subjects that scientist have found new planets.

To post a link, you just hit the little Earth icon under the text options. A pop-up will come up and you type in the title, and then the link (include the http://).
Here I recommend you read the ATS hand-book to lean more information about how to post. ATS Handbook

Oh, also make sure you do a search before posting because someone could have beaten you to it.

I think this is what you might have read

New Planet Search Methods Push Tally Near 300

Astronomers have struggled for centuries to find our solar system's planets, let alone any outside of our relatively puny cosmic neighborhood.

Yet during only the past 13 years, observers have tracked down nearly 300 distant bodies beyond our system thanks to rapid advances in ground-based telescope technology and methods.

Ten worlds alone were identified by a group of astronomers in the past six months using earthbound instruments, and another team of scientists just announced they have found the youngest-ever planetary infant. The hunt for the first Earth-like planet, however, is still on.

The number of extra solar planets are increasing with new technologies; there are Billions of stars and planets within our Milky way and thinking of life exists only on earth is totally negative; Launching of Kepler will reveal more about extra solar planets, just can't wait.

They found one back in 2007, named 'Gliese 581', the first they found that they believed could house life. I believe that we need to focus more on our own solar system, Uranus and Neptune would be a good place to start

Perhaps it was this article you saw? Astronomers find new planets, and a baby
Thursday Apr 3 12:20 AEDT

Astronomers using robotic cameras say they have found 10 new planets outside our solar system, while a second team believes it has found the youngest planet yet.
The findings add to a growing list of more than 270 so-called extrasolar planets, they told a meeting of astronomers in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The robot team is called "SuperWASP," for Wide Area Search for Planets, and the cameras look for planets transiting, or crossing in front of, their stars.

BTW cnm1976, welcome to ATS ! Check out the 3 links in my signature for valuable ATS info.

@gauncents - you may want to check your link.

Nah, that's the name of the star. But that is the right star. There are at least 3 planets in orbit around it.

My bad.

Sorry guys. I copied the wrong link. It happens. You guys are already on it.

I feel like I'm opening new threads, but there's an update in the "New Planet Found" field. Here's a link:

I Googled: 9th planet japanese

to summarize it, Japanese scientists at Kobe University made computer simulations of our solar system and claim that they have the math and the simulation to prove that there's a "Planet X".
