Celebrities React to NASA's New Planet Announcement

The scientists at NASA and European Southern Observatory have made a new discovery about outer space that could change the way we perceive life beyond earth. The discovery announced moments ago sets a new all-time record for the highest number of habitable-zone planets found around a single star outside our solar system.

The news of the exoplanets - meaning planets that orbit around a sun other than our own - was highly-touted by NASA this week.

As she went into her third song, "We Belong Together", she appeared to give up, lowering her mic and muttering, "It just don't get any better".

"Finding a second earth isn't just a matter of if, but when", Thomas Zurbuchen, NASA's associate administrator for science, said during a press conference Wednesday.

The seven exoplanets are orbiting TRAPPIST-1, an ultra-cool dwarf star approximately 40 light years (235 trillion miles) from Earth in the constellation Aquarius. That telescope is called The Transiting Planets and Planetesimals Small Telescope, hence "TRAPPIST". NASA has added a further video which imagines the surface of the fourth planet. The planets that orbit it are clustered more closely, and they probably only ever face Trappist-1 from one side.

The moves are being regarded simply as salary cap moves, as the team tries to free up some space ahead of the upcoming NFL Draft. Albert was the first guard taken in the 2008 NFL Draft , as well as the second Virginia Cavalier (behind No. 2 pick Chris Long).

Planets orbiting Trappist-1 are likely to be rocky planets. The other planets are less likely to host oceans of water, but the team states that liquid water is still a possibility on each of these worlds. While the details of the announcement is not known, there have been speculations about information regarding the existence of alien life forms - one of the biggest questions facing astronomers.

Most exoplanets discovered thus far are similar to Earth and researchers believe they possess organic matter, the building blocks of life. That makes its Earth-sized planets appear large as they parade past.
