Kepler-90i is in fact the eighth planet to be discovered in the Kepler-90 system, a "mini version" of our solar system with its most distant planet located as close to its star as the Earth is to the sun. The new planet, known as Kepler-90i, is rocky and hot.
Google and NASA said on December 14 that advanced computer analysis identified two new planets around distant stars, including one that is part of the first-star system with as many worlds as Earth's solar system. Google CEO Sundar Pichai tweeted, "Kepler-80 g, and Kepler-90 i - which is in the first 8-planet system outside our own!"

"I became interested in applying neural networks to astronomy when I learned that the Kepler mission had collected so much data that it was impossible for scientists to examine it all manually", said Christopher Shallue, a senior software engineer with Google's research team.
Prince Harry, Meghan Markle set the date
According to the BBC , the wedding - including the service, music, flowers and reception - will be paid for by the Royal Family. Those keen to visit Windsor for Harry and Meghan's wedding are now being urged to contact hotels directly for bookings.
The Kepler system is an nearly picture-perfect image of our own with inner rocky planets and outer gaseous giants, NASA have said, but its capacity for life is not as high. Their assumption was that multiple-planet systems would be the best places to look for more exoplanets.
The discovery of Kepler-90i was possible using artificial intelligence technology from Google.
He also said that it "almost certainly won't be the last" system that has eight planets, suggesting our own solar system isn't really all that extraordinary.
Thanks to the discoveries it's made, astronomers now believe there may be at least one planet orbiting every star in the sky. Some planets are more obvious than others, and the goal here was to turn the algorithm loose on digging through past measurements for weak signals that had been missed.
Astronomers spot exoplanets when the celestial bodies move, or transit, in front of their stars.

That is, until Mary decides she is having none of it and tries to grab poor Jesus back from the sheep - a tussle ensues. The video that Tana posted on Facebook has been viewed more than 2 million times and shared by over 84,000 users.
It's called transiting and if the telescope spots repeated transits at regular times it must mean an orbit and therefore a planet.
"Instead scientists selected the strongest signals, which are the most likely to be actual planets, to receive the most attention".
And in October it said it had found 20 news planets that could support life.
Nibiru to hit earth THIS SATURDAY: could this be the end of days?. "The planet was discovered in data from NASA's Kepler Space Telescope", NASA explained in a press release.
