Senate may put off most anticipated Russian probe findingsWASHINGTON (AP) — With no firm conclusions yet on whether President Donald Trump's campaign may have coordinated with Russia, the Senate intelligence committee could delay answering that question and issue more bipartisan recommendations early next year on protecting future elections from foreign tampering.

Google discovers new planet which proves Solar System is not unique 

Google discovers new planet which proves Solar System is not unique Google has previously discovered lost tribes, missing ships and even an forgotten forest. But now it has also found two entire planets. The technology giant used one its algorithms to sift through thousands of signals sent back to Earth by Nasa’s Kepler space telescope. One of the new planets was found hiding in the Kepler-90 star system, which is around 2,200 light years away from Earth. The discovery is important because it takes the number of planets in the star system up to eight, the same as our own Solar System. It is the first time that any system has been found to have as many planets ours. Andrew Vanderburg, astronomer and Nasa Sagan Postdoctoral Fellow at The University of Texas, Austin, said:  "The Kepler-90 star system is like a mini version of our solar system. You have small planets inside and big planets outside, but everything is scrunched in much closer. The Kepler-90 star system has weight planets, like our own  Credit: Nasa “For the first time we know for sure the Solar System is not the sole record holder for the number of planets. “Maybe there are systems out here with so many planets they make ours sound ordinary. It’s very possible that Kepler-90 has even more planets we might not even know about. “There is a lot of unexplored real estate in Kepler-90 system and it would almost be surprising if there were not more planets in the system.” The new planet Kepler-90i is about 30 per cent larger than Earth and very hot Credit: Nasa  The planet Kepler-90i, is a small rocky planet, which orbits so close to its star that the surface temperature is a ‘scorchingly hot’ 800F (426C). It orbits its own sun once every 14 days. The Google team applied a neural network to scan weak signals discovered by the Kepler exoplanet-hunting telescope which had been missed by humans. Kepler has already discovered more than 2,500 exoplanets and 1,000 more which are suspected. The telescope spent four years scanning 150,000 stars looking for dips in their brightness which might suggest an
