Beware of The BLOG...it creeps, it leaps, it glides & slides all over the place.
Another chopped liver post? Potrezebie.
It's hardly a mirror earth. Our current state of astronomy has no way of detecting water on this planet or even an atmosphere. These are just speculations being made because of distances from the star, etc. It's possible, but at this point, we really don't know for sure. Time will tell.
I think this is the first non-giant planet they've found outside our solar system? The rest have had to be big enough to affect the rotation of a star?(*)>
bw: Of the 200+ exosolar planets so far discovered, this one is the most earth-like. It does show much promise, but it is too early to be planning a time share ;-)
Where's my warp drive, darn it! I want to go and get a real look at this place, and plenty of others!
brooke: Me too, but seeing as to how we still haven't even perfected the next generation shuttle vehicle, I'm not holding my breath :-(
