Canadian Student Discovers 17 New Planets

BRITISH COLUMBIA: With the help of a Kepler space telescope designed by NASA for a planet, a student discovered 17 nearby planets, an unusual phenomenon.

Michelle Konimoto, a PhD student at the University of British Columbia, has discovered 17 beyond the solar system, some of which have precision and are suitable for "habitat" or living space. It is believed that water may also be present.
So far, only 15 planets have been found in habitable habitats, and finding a new planet a thousand light years away from Earth is great news, said Michelle.

Michelle has used crosses or transit, one of the commonly used methods of planetary exploration, in which the planet can be seen moving in front of its own sun. That is, when a planet passes in front of its sun, it shuts off some of its light. This lack of light helps to determine the size and orbit of the planet.

The planet that Michelle discovered is equal to one and a half times the size of our planet, and its orbit is slightly larger than Mercury.
