NASA revealed Monday 10 new rocky, Earth-sized planets that could potentially have liquid water and support life.

Ten of the new discoveries were orbiting their suns at a distance similar to Earth's orbit around the sun, the so-called habitable zone that could potentially have liquid water and sustain life.
