Do you believe in aliens? If you don't, you might want to rethink that philosophy because over 100 potential new alien planets have been found.

Astronomers have found a whole heap of new possible exoplanets thanks to 20 years of data gathered from the Keck Observatory in Hawaii.

The researchers found 60 planet candidates and 54 others that require more investigation before they can be considered candidates.

One of the 60 is actually relatively close at 8.3 light years away from the sun. This means it's part of the 4th farthest star system from the sun.

Designed by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen, it is being made under license from Oy Polykem of Helsinki by a Lancashire firm (Waterside Plastics Ltd, of Todmorden) and is described as the leisure home of today and tomorrow.
