NASA finds 7 Earth-like planets orbiting nearby star

            

If you have grown tired of the state of affairs on Earth then you now have 7 other planets to choose from.

NASA announced on Wednesday afternoon that they’ve discovered “the first known system of seven Earth-size planets around a single star.”

And NASA states that 3 of the 7 planets are “firmly located in the habitable zone,” which means they have the highest chance of having liquid water which is an essential ingredient for life.

“This discovery could be a significant piece in the puzzle of finding habitable environments, places that are conducive to life,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington. “Answering the question ‘are we alone’ is a top science priority and finding so many planets like these for the first time in the habitable zone is a remarkable step forward toward that goal.”

The planets are about 40 light-years (235 trillion miles) from Earth and it was discovered by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope in the constellation Aquarius.

The surface of the planets may look like this.

Now Donald Trump has a new place to send all the illegal immigrants too. LMAO!! And for those butthurt people who take everything seriously, I'm going to set the record straight by saying that the statement I made at the beginning of this paragraph was just a joke.

Anyway, do any you reading this believe that there is life on other planets? Let me know on Facebook or in the comments section below.
