Three potentially habitable planets the size of Earth have been discovered in what scientists say is a significant step towards finding life elsewhere in the universe.

The three exoplanets orbit an ultracool dwarf star 40 light-years from Earth, so close that astronomers should eventually be able to study their composition and atmospheres in greater detail.
“If we want to find life elsewhere in the Universe, this is where we should start to look”
