New Delhi: NASA's discovery of what seems like a whole new 'solar system' on Wednesday has the world's space enthusiasts in a tizzy.

The seven Earth-like planets orbiting a small star in a far away galaxy has turned out to be one of the most promising hunting grounds so far for life beyond our solar system.

According to NASA, the discovery sets a new record for greatest number of habitable-zone planets found around a single star outside our solar system.

 

Well, looks like Google couldn't hide its excitement on the news either, since it immediately came out with an interactive exoplanet doodle!
