    Today marks one of significance for space exploration and planetary understanding. This year, Professor Stephen Hawking suggested that humans will need to vacate Earth within the next 100 years in order to survive as a species, as he claimed our planet may soon face a natural doomsday.

  • NASA Announcement - 7 New Planets?

    Yesterday, NASA announced their latest discovery through a live-stream news conference via their website. All eyes were on NASA this morning and the pure jaw-dropping news that stunned many quickly catapulted into the headlines. As they casually announced the discovery of seven habitable planets, all a similar size to planet Earth, they also mentioned that these planets circulated around one single star.

    The newly-found system has been named Trappist-1, which stands for Transiting Planets and Planetesimals Small Telescope. Within this system you are able to see the other planets that are up close, just like those fantasy films you and I dream of being real. It could be a matter of making a fantasy a reality this time round. With space technology thriving, we may begin to see a lot more during the next few years with the potential of the industry to grow even more. With a consistent growth in the space sector over the past few years, we are hoping that it could be time for us to not just leave the country, but leave the planet.

    The planets have been listed as B, C, D, E, F, G and H and NASA are already picturing what life might be like. It's definitely something to be excited about, however it's just a small step into uncovering the significant answer to our question of whether life exists elsewhere already. Due to these exoplanets being trillions of miles away, it's debatable whether or not the atmospheres could potentially be sustainable or not.
