Imagine you're watching The Vampire Diaries and suddenly breaking news flashes on the television screen: "Extra-terrestrial life found on another planet." Could that really happen?
Yup, says teams at NASA and Harvard. Forget werewolves and vampires. An alien could be your new BFF.
Something really interesting is happening right now in the science world: Thanks to tech advances happening every day that makes] it possible to observe smaller and smaller space objects, astronomers may be close to discovering smaller, rocky planets that are similar to Earth and would be the most likely places to contain other forms of life. Crazy, right?
