HATFIELD, England – In the search for Earth-like planets, astronomers zeroed in Tuesday on two places that look awfully familiar to home. One is close to the right size. The other is in the right place. European researchers said they not only found the smallest exoplanet ever, called Gliese 581 e, but realized that a neighboring planet discovered earlier, Gliese 581 d, was in the prime habitable zone for potential life.

It has said that at the moment.

All I ask from this, is that do you think it is true, or fake?

It would be really nice to tell the rest about this "newsflash" Thanks.

This isn't a newsflash, it's nothing that we didn't already know. It shouldn't be a surprise that there are more planets in the universe that can support life.

It's part of the NASA Kepler mission that was launched last month, and yes they have discovered a couple of regions that have planets similar to Earth.

It's still in it's early stage and not too far out in space at this point, we can expect more as time continues.

I said newsflash, because people who do not have an account on ATS thinks it is new

But ya to the rest of us it isn't a newsflash, but hey, at least Yahoo! had the guts to put it up finally.

This was not a discovery of the Kepler mission and it is already being discussed here.

Neither of the planets they are talking about can really be considered Earthlike.
