If even one percent of these turn out to be real, it would suggest that planets could be far more common than we have ever imagined.

I find the thought that, in such a small sample of the stars in our galaxy, seven planets would just happen to be in the perfect alignment to where they could be observed in a period of just 43 days to b extraordinary

In recent years, planets have have moved back into the the probably very common column -- especially with so many being found in unexpected places (like whipping around their star in less than a day).
