Nasa scientists have discovered an alien solar system that they believe has two planets that are completely submerged under water.

The worlds, dubbed super-Earths because they are rocky and larger than our own planet, are orbiting a star called Kepler-62 that lies 1,200 light-years away in the constellation of Lyra.

Both exist in the so-called habitable zone around their home star where water essential for life as we know it can exist as a liquid.

Thanks for posting the link here for it hopefully gives us more evidence that watery worlds near the habitable zones are not as rare as some scientists used to think!. Maybe it's actually odd that Earth along with Venus and Mars is smaller when compared to the 2 watery planets in the same solar system that has at least 5 planets.
