WASHINGTON (AP) -NASA says its planet-hunting Kepler telescope has found 10 new planets outside our solar system that are likely the right size and temperature to potentially have life on them.

NASA announced Monday that it has seen a total of 49 planets in the Goldilocks zone for possible life. And it only looked in a tiny part of the galaxy.

Kepler scientist Mario Perez says that means "we are probably not alone" because four years of data show how common Earth-like planets can be. 

NASA says several of the 10 new potentially habitable planets circle stars similar in size to our sun
