Default Scientists find "Goldilocks" Planet

Scientists have discovered a planet in the "Golidlocks" area of it's solar system, with suitable conditions to be possibly Earthlike. The truth is out there?

Yeah we'll continue to get those articles about "are we alone" and We've found earth like planets. But I won't get excited untill a telescope shows me the surface of such a planet.

Glise is only 20 lightyears away. That's our Local Cluster. Same Neighborhood as Vega.

This gives me hope that someday people might actually realize that we should be striving to get off the Earth before it gets too overcrowded.

I wonder if the whiz bang Kepler probe can determine if it's Class M or not...or maybe James Webb ST when it's launched.
