The new Jason Segel horror movie (I know, so weird to type that) THE DISCOVERY has to have one of the most killer premises I've heard in a while. You see there is this scientist (or something) played by Robert Redford. He finds out there is an afterlife. Show More Summary
While the Trump administration stays busy protecting this planet from breathable air and transgender teens, scientists have discovered seven previously unknown "Earthlike" planets orbiting a single star in a nearby solar system. Seven new planets! "Earthlike!" No Trump! No Sessions! No Pruitt! No DeVos! No Bannon! No Pence! OMG DO YOU THINK THEY HAVE PANDAS??? [ more › ]
NASA scientists announced on Wednesday that four new Earth-sized exoplants have been discovered. The planets are orbiting a star approximately 40 light-years away, and three of them may contain water and be able to sustain life. These four exoplanets join … More » The post NASA Discovers 7 Earth-Sized Planets – 3 Could Possibly Support Life appeared first on EveryJoe.
