The Search Engine Google is showing an Animated Doodle for celebrating the Discovery of the Seven Earth-size Exoplanets.
NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has revealed the first known system of seven Earth-size planets around a single star. Three of these planets are firmly located in the habitable zone
This exoplanet system is called TRAPPIST-1
And liquid water could exist on any of the seven planets given the right conditions. TRAPPIST-1 system is located around 40 light years away i-e 235 trillion miles away. In space terms, that practically makes us next-door neighbors!
