Greg Laughlin, professor of astrophysics and planetary science at the University of California, said the discovery could turn our understanding of how planets appeared after the Big Bang on its head.

"This is an amazing discovery," he told SPACE.com

"These planets are very difficult to form using the currently accepted paradigm, and I believe that theorists will be going back to the drawing board to try to improve our understanding of how planets are assembled."

Now, scientists are expecting to find more such systems.

“If we get more data that confirms a third planet, then the sky’s the limit,” says Jerome Orosz from San Diego State University, who published the discovery of Kepler-47 in Science magazine.

"Most of the stars in the galaxy are in binary or higher-order multiple systems, so the fact that planetary systems can exist in these types of systems is important. If we were restricted to looking for planets around single stars, we would be missing most of the stars in the galaxy," says Orosz.

"Binary stars are extremely common," accounting for about half the stars in the sky, says Dan Fabrycky of the University of California, Santa Cruz, who was not on the study team. "Ostensibly, you can now double the population of habitable planets."
