Astronomers are excited by the discovery, which suggests that some of these exoplanets — planets around stars other than the sun — could support life and may be awash in oceans.
As you might expect, I find this kind of thing absolutely fascinating. That there might be Earth-like planets … well, that’s a given as far as I’m concerned. That there might be some this close (and yes, in the grand scheme of things, this is close) is pretty cool. But that there might be seven of them? Holy crap!
#notallnewsisbad – some of it is downright amazing.
