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.

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

So is the rest of the Universe. Nothing exists.

Wish not granted. Referencing the corrupt a wish thread.

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