NASA`s Spitzer Space Telescope has revealed the first known system of 7 Earth-size planets around a single star. 3 of these planets are firmly located in the habitable zone. This exoplanet system is called TRAPPIST-1 and liquid water could exist on any of the 7 planets given the right conditions. TRAPPIST-1 system is located around 40 light years away i.e. 235 trillion miles away. In space terms that practically makes us next-door neighbors.

The star is so small and cold that the seven planets are temperate.
