Maybe a planet with water and an atmosphere.
...results from Kepler, which include the "discovery of an intriguing planetary system
Follow-up observations are necessary to distinguish between actual planets and false alarms such as binary stars, which are two stars that orbit each other.
"... and we also found a planet just like our Earth: it has major blue oceans, probably steaming with life, an atmosphere rich in oxygen and carbon dioxide... there seems to be indication of large forests too. We also could notice some unnatural radio transmissions coming from it...
By the way we also found a portal on the dark side of the moon that can take a space shuttle to that planet in less then 5 minutes."

They will say they have found a whole slew of candidate worlds much smaller than gas giants, more analogous to earth size, and that if you extrapolate the data it means that rocky worlds like ours outnumber gas giants by quite a bit.
Past discoveries suggested most planets outside our solar system were gas giants such as Jupiter and Saturn -- but the new evidence tipped the balance in favor of solid worlds.
