The Spitzer Space Telescope found seven Earth-sized planets around a single star, which sets a new NASA discovery record for the largest solar system around a single star.

NASA reports in a news release that while all seven planets could have water, there are three in the habitable zone which includes a rocky planet that "is most likely to have liquid water."


"This discovery could be a significant piece in the puzzle of finding habitable environments, places that are conducive to life," Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of the agency's Science Mission Directorate, said in the release.

"Answering the question 'are we alone' is a top science priority and finding so many planets like these for the first time in the habitable zone is a remarkable step forward toward that goal."

The solar system -- TRAPPIST-1 -- is 40 light-years from Earth, which amounts to 235 trillion miles. Since the planets are outside of Earth's solar system, NASA labels them as exoplanets.

All planets in the new system are likely to be rocky on the surface, which means more observation and attention could "not only help determine whether they are rich in water, but also possibly reveal whether any could have liquid water on their surfaces."

The seventh and furthest from the single-star exoplanet has not been measured in mass yet, but NASA reports it could be an icy, snowball-like world.

"This is the most exciting result I have seen in the 14 years of Spitzer operations," Sean Carey, manager of NASA's Spitzer Science Center, said in the release. "Spitzer will follow up in the fall to further refine our understanding of these planets so that the James Webb Space Telescope can follow up. More observations of the system are sure to reveal more secrets."

NASA adds that the Spitzer, Hubble and Kepler will continue to conduct follow-up studies. The space administration's James Webb Space Telescope will launch in 2018, which will be able to "detect the chemical fingerprints of water, methane, oxygen, ozone, and other components of a planet's atmosphere."

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
