SIX NEW planets DISCOVERED

Using the giant Keck 1 observatory in Hawaii, Astronomers have

discovered 6 new giant planets orbiting nearby stars. What's

exciting about their discovery; however, is the fact that five

of them are located in the habitable zone around their

stars - a distance where the temperature from the star

can help support life.

UK ESTABLISHES PANEL TO INVESTIGATE asteroid THREAT

In an effort to begin collaboration to help protect the Earth from

the threat of asteroid impact, the UK Government has set up a special

panel. Science Minister Lord Sainsbury wants to establish the

government's stance on the issue, and has organized a team to give

him the answers he needs. It's estimate that an asteroid large

enough to end humanity hits once every 100,000 to million years.
