NASA has discovered new planets that could possibly sustain human life.

FOX's Eben Brown reports:

(Zubuchen) "Three of these planets marked in green are in the Habitable Zone, where liquid water can pool on the surface. In fact, with the right atmospheric conditions there could be water on any of these planets."

NASA's Thomas Zubuchen. What's more is that one planet, the fifth in the system, probably has Earth-like temperatures. It's all 40 light years distance, which while cosmically close, is more than 230 trillion miles away.
