HOUSTON, TX – NASA’s Kepler space telescope has discovered yet another planet. But this isn’t just any ol’ planet; it’s one that is 17 times bigger than earth!

It’s name is Kepler-10c.

NASA scientists are describing it as a ‘mega-earth’ because it’s too gargantuan to fit into the category of super-earths; which are about 10 times bigger than our planet.
