(CNN) -- In the midst of chaos here on Earth, scientists are finding hope for life on other planets.
Scientists announced Thursday the discovery of three planets that are some of the best candidates so far for habitable worlds outside our own solar system -- and they're very far away.
NASA's Kepler satellite, which is keeping an eye on more than 150,000 stars in hopes of identifying Earth-like planets, found the trio.

Next step -- finish inventing hyperdrives and lightsabers.

I have the feeling we'll blow ourselves up/ poison our planet before we have the technology to relocate that far.

When the Republicans take over they will declare NASA a sin and dissolve it.
