Google Doodle For NASA Exoplanet Discovery

Google's home page has a rare late day Doodle, special logo, this one is for the NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope finding the first known system of seven Earth-size planets around a single star.

NASA said "three of these planets are firmly located in the habitable zone, the area around the parent star where a rocky planet is most likely to have liquid water."

Here is the animated version of this Google doodle:

Here is a video that explains this discovery:
