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.

That's awesome, I can't wait until we can find out more about Planet G and other planets like it!

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.

Yeah, I was SO excited when I heard about this! How cool! Can't wait to see more updates on it :)

What a discovery!
I love reading up on things like this. I would love to get some more information on it.
Thanks for posting. :D

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. :lol: 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!

haha i agree i don't like pluto not being a planet xD

i really don't belive in this sorta stuff i think they are just wasting billions of dollars sending little space ships to space when they normally find nothing i bet we will never hear about this again or if we do its a oops sorry we messed up again
