Another Earth?


Today journal Science announced that a planet in habitable zone is found: An Earth-Sized Planet and also published an additional explanation for non experts: Almost-Earth

This is a news that tickles an imagination. A planet that might be a bit coldish, lit with deep red sunlight, and with way shorter year and seasons, but most likely habitable.
The biggest consequence of this news is that planet orbits a M class star, a type of the star that is very common in our galaxy. This means that probability of finding aliens just increased. :-)
