http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/311285 Basically to sum it up, these guys are using new technology to discover if there are other planets in our galaxy that support life. You may have heard it all before, but with our technology in the past, we've only been able to examine stars and not the planets that are orbiting them. Simply because the solar systems are so far away that it's impossible to see the planets. But now they've found a way to discover what's orbiting the stars and if these planets are in the "safe zone". The safe zone is a planet that is at the same distance from the star as ours. Not to close that we'll all fry, and not too far that we'll all freeze. Like the third bowl of porridge, we're juuuuust right. If a planet is in the safe zone, it may not have life on it, but it may very well be able to support life. If you like that NASA science stuff, it's a cool video to watch.
