NASA announced yesterday that they have discovered five new planets orbiting distant stars dubbed Kepler 4b, 5b, 6b, 7b, and 8b. All of the planets are much larger and hotter then those in our own solar system ranging from 2,000 to 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit and Kepler 7 is the most dense planet ever found.
