Our Neighbors In Space 
In a remarkable step in understanding the evolution of planets in our galaxy, astronomers have spotted a nearby star with seven earth-sized planets. Some of these planets could harbor liquid water, the key to life as we know it. At about 40 light years from Earth, this system of planets, known as Trappist-1, is relatively close to us in the constellation Aquarius. This is the latest discovery in NASA’s search, which has yielded a catalog of over a thousand planets.

Join us in a discussion on the evolution of planets, how exoplanets are found and details on the first results of this discovery.
