After much anticipation, NASA made a significant announcement on Wednesday — no, not aliens, sorry.
Seven Earth-sized planets are orbiting Trappist-1, a relatively close star. Each one might contain water.
People had jokes about the Trappist-1 system.
One person called dibs on "planet G."
And one person envisioned how the news might be conveyed to President Trump.
Others weren't surprised.
The dominant response to NASA's announcement: Let's go.
Some people even appealed to aliens directly.
