    Earth-Like Planet Discovered 20 Light Years From Earth.

    I hope I'm not the only one totally fascinated by astronomy and planetary interaction...

    It takes just 37 days to orbit its sun which means its seasons last for just a few days.

    I'd like to know more about it too, but I suppose we have to wait a while, considering it's such a new discovery.

    Stuff like this just gets me thinking... Obviously, scientists are thinking and seeing, that that planet can support life. But what if it supports life in a totally different way than we know of? We can only assume that life exists from things we know creates life, but what if there are OTHER things out there that we haven't heard of, or experienced that do the same thing?
    It's crazy how much we have to learn about our universe...

    I don't think I can ever forgive the world of Astronomy after they downgraded Pluto from planet status a couple years back.

    I still like to think of Pluto as a planet. I don't care what they say now, when I was in elementary school I was taught it was a planet! You cannot unlearn things!
