SCIENTISTS celebrated Sunday after finding more than 700 suspected new planets -- including up to
140 similar in size to Earth -- in just six weeks of using a powerful new space observatory.

Early results from NASA's Kepler Mission, a small satellite observing deep space, suggested planets
like Earth were far more common than previously thought.

Past discoveries suggested most planets outside our solar system were gas giants such as Jupiter
and Saturn -- but the new evidence tipped the balance in favor of solid worlds.  

Astronomers said the discovery meant the chances of eventually finding truly Earth-like planets
capable of sustaining life rose sharply.

The figures suggest our galaxy, the Milky Way (which has more than 100 billion stars) will contain
100 million habitable planets and soon we will be identifying the first of them, said Dimitar Sassselov,
professor of astronomy at Harvard University and a scientist on the Kepler Mission.

[They're coming closer to the Urantia revelation -- The revelation informs us that there are
10,000,000 inhabitable worlds in a local universe, and one trillion in a superuniverse. Either way
scientists are off but the evidence seems to support the fact that the universes are teeming with
human life, and that the universes abound with habitable planets, and moreover, the universe is
immense beyond our imagination.]
