The world is not enough…or so it seems!

The astronomers who use the Hubble Space Telescope announced that they have located the fastest moving and most distant planets ever found. Among these, there are as many as five that orbit their home stars in less than a day. By comparison, Mercury, swiftest in the our solar system, races around the Sun once every 88 days.

According to earthtimes.org, “these planets are called exoplanets or extra-solar planets because they are found beyond our solar system although within the Milky Way galaxy. These 16 planets were spotted in ‘the Bulge’, a space that is approx. 26,000 light-years away in the center of the Milky Way and believed to be rich in stars and planets.”

Well done boys! Now the next mission should be to locate a planet where we can shift a portion of humanity who does not believe in living with peace!!!
