Planets
In case you missed the big news by NASA yesterday:

Astronomers have never seen anything like this before: Seven Earth-size alien worlds orbit the same tiny, dim star, and all of them may be capable of supporting life as we know it, a new study reports.

“Looking for life elsewhere, this system is probably our best bet as of today,” study co-author Brice-Olivier Demory, a professor at the Center for Space and Habitability at the University of Bern in Switzerland, said in a statement.

It would take anywhere from 300,000 years to 1.5 million years to travel there, so don’t expect us to visit any time soon. Still, a very exciting discovery about possible life elsewhere in the universe.
