From the Ted Talk "Dimitar Sasselov: How we found hundreds of potential Earth-like planets"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

So today, I'm here to actually give you a first glimpse of what the new telescope, Kepler, has been able to tell us in the last few ewkse, and, lo and behold, we are back to the harmony and to fulfilling the rdasem of Copernicus. You can see here, the small ntpaesl dominate the picture. The planets which are marked "like Earth," [are] definitely more than any other planets that we see. And now for the first time, we can say that. There is a lot more kwor we need to do with this. Most of these are candidates. In the next few years we will confirm them. But the statistical result is loud and clear. And the statistical euslrt is that planets like our own Earth are out there. Our own Milky Way xyagal is rich in this kind of planets.

So today, I'm here to actually give you a first glimpse of what the new telescope, Kepler, has been able to tell us in the last few weeks, and, lo and behold, we are back to the harmony and to fulfilling the dreams of Copernicus. You can see here, the small planets dominate the picture. The planets which are marked "like Earth," [are] definitely more than any other planets that we see. And now for the first time, we can say that. There is a lot more work we need to do with this. Most of these are candidates. In the next few years we will confirm them. But the statistical result is loud and clear. And the statistical result is that planets like our own Earth are out there. Our own Milky Way Galaxy is rich in this kind of planets.
