PostSubject: Scientists discover a nearly Earth-sized planet   Tue Apr 21, 2009 9:06 pm

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.
"The Holy Grail of current exoplanet research is the detection of a rocky, Earth-like planet in the 'habitable zone,'" said Michel Mayor, an astrophysicist at Geneva University in Switzerland.
An American expert called the discovery of the tiny planet "extraordinary."

This is fucking amazing....my only hope is that if we ever get to it and it supports our life, that it's run better than the planet we're on now...hell, this may even be a planet with life identical to ours.....This truly is fucking amazing....

With the way things are going on this planet, I wouldn't mind being a test subject. Would be nice to escape and see what truly is going on over there.
