http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/7-earth-size-planets-identified-in-orbit-around-a-dwarf-star/ar-AAndYYq?ocid=spartanntp

NASA has announced that they have found a dwarf star barely larger than Jupiter, with 7 roughly Earth-sized planets orbiting, 3 of them within the system's habitable zone.

That's big news.

The problem with these planets in the TRAPPIS-1 system is that they appear to all be tidally locked. That means humanity might make a small colony on land, or a station similar to an oil rig out in the ocean right at the dusk region of the planet and be able to survive without an artificial atmosphere, but any hope of major colonization is pretty slim.

What's bigger news? Where there is one system like this, there are more.

In the future, dwarf systems will be looked at much more closely because up until this point dwarf systems were dismissed as largely unremarkable. This proves that belief wrong, and now suggest they might be the most likely place for us to look for a truly habitable world.

It is huge news and if there are planets in a habital zone there may even be life in those oceans. Big news and it is exciting for sure.
Y'know what?....It's really fucking hot here in Africa. Who knew?....Well me, I have been doing this for almost 5 years
