Astronomer Derrick Pitt says it’s the way the new planet was discovered that has scientists buzzing and makes their jobs easier.
"The Google AI system has been able to search through that pile of information much faster that humans have been able to dig through it.,” Derrick Pitts, astronomer and Planetarium Director at Franklin Institute, said.
“If you think about the analogy of the number of stars in the galaxy being like the number of sand grains on a beach, it's as if we've been asked to search through all the sand grains on the beach to find just the red sand grains."
With our current rocket technology, it’s estimated it would take us millions of years just to reach Kepler 90-I. The new planet also orbits its star about every 14 days, which means you’d have a birthday there just about every two weeks.
