3 Earth-Like Planets “Best Chance Yet Of Finding Extraterrestrial Life”

Three Earth-like planets have been discovered by scientists which offer the best chance yet of finding extraterrestrial life.

A groundbreaking report, published in Nature, revealed that the Earth-sized planets that orbit around a small star nearly 40 light years away could represent astronomers’ best chance yet of finding life outside our Solar System.

The planets orbit close enough to their host star to maintain temperatures comparable to those on Earth, opening up the possibility that water could pool on their surfaces.

Study author Michaël Gillon said: “This is the first time we have planets we can study in extreme detail and are really like the Earth in terms of size, temperature, and composition.”
