Answers

Scientists have discovered a planet that in theory can support life. The planet isn’t in our solar system. It orbits a star called Gliese 581, which is about 116 trillion miles from Earth. Astronomers have found extra solar planets in the past too, but none seemed habitable. Most are giant balls of gas. Many are so close to their fiery stars that water on them would boil away; others are so distant that water would freeze.
