This one is 36 light years away, roughly 77 degrees (Farenheit I presume), and 3.6 times the size of Earth.
It's sun is cooler than ours and it's in the 'habitable zone'. It MAY have water.
They won't know more for another year.
Seems we (an observatory in Chile) shoot beams at their sun to see if it wobbles? We measure the wobble to determine the planet's size. EDIT - NO,
we do not shoot "beams" - my bad.
Aaargh! Hope they don't shoot our sun back! Edit - I'm so silly sometimes.
