NASA Discovers New Solar System That Could House Life

Nasa's 'holy grail': Entire new solar system that could support alien life discovered



Nasa has announced that Scientists have found a new solar system filled with planets that look like Earth and could support life.

At least three of the seven planets represent the “holy grail for planet-hunting astronomers”, because they sit within the “temperate zone” and are the right temperature to allow alien life to flourish, the researchers have said. And they are capable of having oceans, again suggesting that life could flourish on them.
No other star system has ever been found to contain so many Earth-sized and rocky planets, of the kind thought to be necessary to contain aliens.
The researchers might soon be able to find evidence of life on the planets, they have said. British astronomer Dr Chris Copperwheat, from Liverpool John Moores University, who was part of the international team, said: “The discovery of multiple rocky planets with surface temperatures which allow for liquid water make this amazing system an exciting future target in the search for life."
Any evidence of life is likely to be “strong, very strong or conclusive”, the scientists said. It will be done by looking for what molecules are in the atmosphere – if they were to find things like oxygen, and in the right amounts, then it would probably indicate that there was biological activity.
Life Exists Outside of Earth

But there is a big problem with this announcement: We already know much more than this, including that life exists outside of Earth.

“It’s the first time that so many planets of this kind are found around a same star,” Michaël Gillon, the lead author of the Nature paper announcing the discovery, said in a press conference. “The seven planets … could have some liquid water and maybe life on the surface.”

The seven exoplanets orbit a star in the constellation Aquarius called Trappist-1. And it’s a solar system said to differ greatly from our own.

Their sun, or ‘star’, has scientists fascinated because it is much smaller than our own, with an estimated one-tenth the mass of our sun and about one-thousandth its brightness. The good news for potential life on those planets is that the star’s low mass allows its planets to orbit it very closely and remain in the habitable zone.





The Challenge?

NASA seems to be holding back. Why? Information is obviously controlled and let out very slowly for specific reasons, and that could be a good thing. But at the same time, they have been hiding the truth from the public for a very long time.

This has been proven through the bevy of military, intelligence community, and even NASA whistleblowers who have come forth talking about this secrecy, as well as the known fact of life beyond Earth.
