Closer to Fine


NASA just announced that we've found a planet that's only 60% bigger than Earth orbiting in the habitable zone around a G-class star. At 1400 light years out, the commute from here would be a bit long, of course, but -- in galactic terms -- it's the first piece of prime real estate to turn up.

Mind you, they have no idea what the planet actually looks like in terms of composition yet. But I'm sure they'll be looking at it pretty closely over the next few years.
