The scientists at NASA research institute reported that they are at least 100 billion other planets in our Milky Way galaxy. They came to this conclusion because the Hubble Telescope took a picture of the galaxy and the scientists at NASA said that there is at least 1 planet for every star. So this means that there are 100 billion planets in our Solar System. And this means that there are 1,500 planets within 50 light years away from Earth.
