7:38 am
sun then the oceans boil away. if a planet is too far from the sun the oceans freeze. you have to be just right from the sun to have liquid water which is the universal solvent where dna first gets off the ground. >> what's the next step for scientists? >> we better look at the atmospheres of the planets. look for oxygen, water vapor. we want to look maybe for radio transmissions. perhaps there is intelligent life there. some kind of radio. this means we are hot on the heels of the best shot at finding a twin in outer space. >> will we know next week? >> it will take months and months of painful work. an announcement that we have found evidence of life is huge. >> huge. >> much bigger than columbus discovering the new world. >> bigger than columbus. >> much bigger. >> 235 trillion miles sounds far. >> a hop, skip and a jump. >> it would take a few hundred
