In a very interesting discovery, NASA has found seven earth-like planets around a single star.
NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope revealed this significant information yesterday. Three out of these seven planets are located in the area where liquid water might be available.
This discovery again embarks new human aspirations to live and travel outside the earth.
Thomas Zurbuchen, Associate Administrator of the NASA Science Mission Directorate in Washington claimed that these newly identified places are conducive to live.
He aso claimed NASA is looking for an answer to the questions such as ‘are we alone’ and ‘are living organism present outside earth’.
These planets are nearly at the distance of 40 light years (235 trillion miles) from our planet earth and are outside of our solar system, known as exoplanets.
This exoplanet system is called TRAPPIST-1, named for The Transiting Planets and Planetesimals Small Telescope (TRAPPIST) in Chile.
