Could There Be Life Somewhere Else in Space?

planet-581239_640On February 23, 2017, NASA discovered seven new earth-sized planets orbiting the same star 235 trillion miles away.  Three of these planets lie in the middle of what scientists call the habitable zone.  All seven planets could have liquid water but only three are possibly habitable.  Unlike our solar system these planets happen to be very close together.  If you were to visit one of these planets, you would be able to see its neighboring planets pass by on their orbital journey.  Hopefully in the future scientists will find out more about these planets and possibly find extraterrestrial life.
