Information from the NASA K2 mission has given an international team of scientists the data they need to confirm the existence of almost 100 new planets. This huge discovery brings the total number of exoplanets discovered on this mission close to 300.

U.S. doctoral student Andrew Mayo at the National Space Institute at the Technical University of Denmark elaborated on the findings, stating, “We started out analyzing 275 candidates, of which 149 were validated as real exoplanets. In turn, 95 of these planets have proved to be new discoveries…This research has been underway since the first K2 release in 2014.

Mayo’s research was actually conducted partly as a senior project during his undergraduate studies at Harvard College. The research has since expanded to include international collaboration with institutions like NASA, Caltech, The University of Copenhagen, UC Berkeley, and the University of Tokyo.
