Astronomers have found at least seven Earth-like planets orbiting the same star 40 light-years away, according to a study published Wednesday in the journal Nature. The findings were also announced at a news conference at NASA Headquarters in Washington.

This discovery outside of our solar system is rare because the planets have the winning combination of being similar in size to Earth and being all temperate, meaning they could have water on their surface and potentially support life.

The seven exoplanets were all found in tight formation around an ultracool dwarf star called TRAPPIST-1. Estimates of their mass also indicate that they are rocky planets, rather than being gaseous like Jupiter.

BREAKING NEWS


A federal judge in Washington State has granted a temporary restraining order that the state’s attorney general says immediately halts President Donald Trump’s immigration executive order nationwide.

“No one is above the law — not even the President,” Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson said. There was no immediate response from the Trump administration.

Earlier in Boston on Friday evening, another federal judge declined to renew a temporary restraining order on the ban.

The Obama administration is preparing to announce a series of retaliation measures against Russia for meddling in the US election, according to American officials briefed on the plans.

The actions are expected to include expanded sanctions and diplomatic measures, the officials said, in what the administration deems a proportional response to a Russian operation that went beyond the cyber hacking activities common among nations.

Some of the steps are expected to name individuals associated with a Russian disinformation campaign that US intelligence officials say used hacked information from mostly Democratic Party organizations and officials to attack Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

US officials have also said the federal government plans some unannounced actions taken through covert means at a time of its choosing.

CNN BREAKING NEWS . . .


President Barack Obama said evidence of political hacking stopped after he told Russian President Vladimir Putin that “there were going to be serious consequences if he didn’t” end the cyberintrusions in the United States. Obama said he met with Putin in September on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in China. Obama said he insisted Putin “cut it out.”

The comments came Friday in a wide-ranging year-end news conference.

Obama also said that:

  • Naming Russia as the culprit behind the hacking of Democratic emails “requires us not to re-litigate the election, it requires us not to point fingers, it requires us to just say, here’s what happened, let’s be honest about it, and let’s not use it as a political football but let’s figure out how to prevent it from happening in the future.”
  • “Ronald Reagan would roll over in his grave” over the recent GOP praise of Russia. The President attacked Republicans for siding with an arch-enemy of the United States because of their dislike of Democrats.
  • His transitional conversations with President-elect Donald Trump “have been cordial as opposed to defensive in any way.” There is no “squabbling” between the incoming and outgoing administrations.
  • The Syrian regime, along with Moscow and Tehran, are responsible for the slaughter of civilians in Aleppo. “We have seen a deliberate strategy of surrounding, besieging and starving innocent civilians,” Obama said. “The blood for these atrocities is on their hands.”
  • Hillary Clinton was “treated unfairly” in the presidential contest. “I think the coverage of her and the issues was troubling.”

John Glenn, former US senator and the first American to orbit the Earth, has died, Ohio State University says. He was 95.

Glenn piloted the Mercury space capsule, dubbed Friendship 7, and circled the planet three times in just under five hours on February 20, 1962. Of the original seven US astronauts who made up Project Mercury — Glenn, Alan Shepard, Gus Grissom, Gordon Cooper, Scott Carpenter, Walter Schirra and Donald Slayton — Glenn was the last surviving member.

After resigning from the astronaut program in 1964, he pursued a career in politics, serving as a Democratic US senator from Ohio between 1974 and 1999.

At 77, he became the oldest person to ever travel in space. Glenn was a payload specialist aboard the space shuttle Discovery for a nine-day mission in 1998.
