Star's seven Earth-sized worlds set record By Paul Rincon Science editor, BBC News website 22 February 2017
Astronomers have detected a record seven Earth-sized planets orbiting a single star. The researchers say that all seven could potentially support liquid water on the surface, depending on the other properties of those planets. But only three are within the conventional “habitable” zone where life is considered a possibility. The compact system of exoplanets orbits Trappist-1, a low-mass, cool star located 40 light-years away from Earth. For more information CLICK HERE
