New Earth-Like Planets Discovered
Seven new Earth-sized planets have been discovered orbiting a (relatively) nearby star. The star, called Trappist-1, is much smaller than our sun, and is classified as an ultra-cool dwarf.
To this stunning announcement we only add this observation: Ultra-Cool Dwarf would be a great name for a rock band.
The newly discovered exoplanets very likely have liquid water, meaning they may host alien life forms not yet in the Trump Administration.
