Don’t Start Packing Just Yet

It’s being reported that astronomers have discovered a planet outside our solar system that they believe may be potentially habitable with “earth-like temperatures” although the red dwarf it closely orbits is smaller and dimmer and not as hot as our sun.


“The planet is just the right size, might have water in liquid form, and in galactic terms is relatively nearby at 120 trillion miles away.”

That’s at least a day’s hike out. In galactic terms.
