Could other planets support life? It's likely, and there may be more in our very own galaxy than previously thought. Astronomers have found that there are about 100 million other places in the Milky Way galaxy that could support complex life.
NASA successfully transmitted a 175-megabit video from the International Space Station to Earth on Thursday using the Optical Payload for Lasercomm Science (OPALS). This could revolutionize the way NASA receives data from space.
