Planetary system containing 7 planet candidate found in Kepler's data

http://arxiv.org/pdf/1310.5912v1.pdf
Code:
We report the discovery of 14 new transiting planet candidates in the Kepler field
from the Planet Hunters citizen science program. None of these candidates overlap with
Kepler Objects of Interest (KOIs), and five of the candidates were missed by the Kepler
Transit Planet Search (TPS) algorithm. The new candidates have periods ranging from
124 − 904 days, eight residing in their host star’s habitable zone (HZ) and two (now) in
multiple planet systems. We report the discovery of one more addition to the six planet
candidate system around KOI-351, marking the first seven planet candidate system from
Kepler. Additionally, KOI-351 bears some resemblance to our own solar system, with
the inner five planets ranging from Earth to mini-Neptune radii and the outer planets
being gas giants; however, this system is very compact, with all seven planet candidates
orbiting . 1 AU from their host star. We perform a numerical integration of the orbits
and show that the system remains stable for over 100 million years. A Hill stability test
also confirms the feasibility for the dynamical stability of the KOI-351 system.
*KOI => Kepler Object of Interest, mainly stars.

One of my strongest lifetime wishes is to be still around when we encounter the first evidence of intelligent life elsewhere.

I'd settle for evidence of intelligent life here on Earth.

Wish granted. However, whatever your opinion is on any subject, they have the opposite idea.

Well, my idea will be "let's fight against each other!"



Thinking to the paradox? :P
