Astronomers Discover Seven New Worlds

22 Feb 2017

Is there life in space? Astronomers on Wednesday made a statement that gives more substance to the possibility that there is. NASA and a Belgian led research team announced that they have discovered seven, potentially habitable, earth-size planets orbiting a star in the constellation Aquarius. More studies need to be done to determine if the atmosphere for these planets are able to hold life, but this is massive discovery for the scientific community, because as one of the researchers, Amaury Triaud states, “We’ve made a crucial step toward finding if there is life out there.”
