"New" most earth-like planet

Postby Kay » Wed 07 Jan 2015 09:37

Interesting news today:

One of eight new planets spied in distant solar systems has usurped the title of "most Earth-like alien world", astronomers have said.

Unfortunately, it would take about 475 light years to get there, so they're ruling out a Star Trek type of first contact scenario. Even so, I wonder if Virgin will start planning holidays there! It's amazing to think what might be out there, though.
