Earth-like Planet Found

This week is European Week of Astronomy and Space Science, which doesn't mean much to many people in America, but it suddenly became relevant today when this came out. There was an earth-sized and shaped planet found that is only 20 1/2 light years away, which is less than a stone's throw away in galactic terms. It's very exciting since it qualifies more than any other planet found so far as hospitable and probable for life. Now THAT'S exciting!
