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:

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

Here is a video that explains this discovery:

NASA even tweeted about Google's Doodle:
