According to Digital Trends, "Astronomers from the Keck Observatory in Maunakea, Hawaii have discovered water on a nearby planet known as HR 8799 c. HR 8799 c is only 179 light-years away from Earth, making it a relatively close neighbor to us." The crazy thing is that HR 8799 c is an extremely large planet. In fact, it is seven times larger than Jupiter, and it takes it 200 years to orbit around Earth. This is an amazing discovery, because it more evidence that there is potentially life outside of Earth.
