Seven Earth-size Planets Have Been Discovered Orbiting A Potentially Habitable Solar System

An exciting discovery from NASA that the world is talking about (via Sparkonit)

Seven Earth-size planets that could potentially harbor life have been spotted orbiting a dim dwarf star called Trappist-1, which is located at 39 light-years away in the constellation Aquarius. According to NASA, all seven could potentially support liquid water, on the surface, but only three represent the “holy grail for planet-hunting astronomers,” because they are…
