Terrestrial Worlds Found

NASA has announced the discovery of seven terrestrial worlds in orbit around the star TRAPPIST-1 in the constellation Aquarius, located 39.13 light years from earth. Three of the planets are located within the habitable zone, which means they may contain water and be capable of sustaining life as we know it. The star takes its name from the Transiting Planets and Planetesimals Small Telescope located in Atacalma, Chile, which was used to observe it.
