For the first time astronomers have discovered a planet outside our solar system that is potentially habitable, with Earth-like temperatures, a find researchers described Tuesday as a big step in the search for "life in the universe."
The planet is just the right size, might have water in liquid form, and in galactic terms is relatively nearby at 120 trillion miles away. But the star it closely orbits, known as a "red dwarf," is much smaller, dimmer and cooler than our sun.
I'm not sure what to make of this, apparently they have found an "earth like" planet some twenty light years away,it could be a significant find if it holds true. maybe we should go there, since we have messed this one up so bad.
