Astronomy Science ~ Gaia, a European satellite that was recently launched into space could reveal tens of thousands of new planets in the next few years.

This discovery could give scientists a much better understanding of the number, variety and distribution of planets in our galaxy.

This vehicle can detect at least 21 thousand exoplanets in 5 year mission, researchers from Princeton University in the United States and the Lund University of Sweden. If extended to 10 years, Gaia could detect exoplanets about 70,000.

Satellite instruments can reveal objects that are considered rare in the Milky Way as it can detect 25-50 time planet Jupiter orbiting a dim, low-mass stars known as red dwarfs.

"It's not just about numbers. Each of these planets will be known the specific details and many other interesting things," said Michael Perryman of the Department of Astrophysical Sciences who was involved in the study.

The researchers hope the Gaia satellite can detect a planet like Earth, which is where it is still hard to find twin.

The study was published in the Astrophysical Journal.
