NASA discovered 7 Earthsize worlds orbiting star
NASA, for the first time, discovered 7 Earth-size worlds orbiting star which could hold the life.This cluster of planets is less than 40 light-years away in the constellation Aquarius.The planets circle tightly around a dim dwarf star called Trappist-1, barely the size of Jupiter. Being a habitable zone, life might exist on the discovered new planet. Scientists said they need to study the atmospheres before determining whether these rocky, terrestrial planets could support some sort of life. But it already shows just how many Earth-size planets could be out there — especially in a star's sweet spot, ripe for extraterrestrial life.
