There has been a discovery of seven, closely Earth-sized planets found orbiting a star near the constellation of Aquarius. It is said that the star is so small and cold, that it makes the planets temperate. Temperate planets may be suitable for life and water, and it is even possible for them to hold earth-like atmospheres.

Sadly, we are not certain we can live there, for just because the planets are suitable to hold liquid water, does not mean they have any. Scientists have also discovered that the planets are so close together, that if a meteor were to impact a planet, it could hit its neighbor.

The seven Earth-like planets are only forty light years away and, according to many scientists, may be able to host and sustain life. These planets may even hold extraterrestrial life. By continuing research, scientists hope to uncover and discover future life-holding planets.
