http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/afp/20040825/sc_afp/space_astronomy_planets I just thought this was mildly interesting. They found a new planet that is only 14 times the size of our planet, that is made up of rock just like ours. It is 50 light years away from us. Pretty neat find in my opinion.

Interesting, but I guess it's too close to it's sun (because of the short orbit time).

Yes. Unless the start is a cool white dwarf;). We would need powered exoskeletons to walkon the surface of the planet though. a normal human would weigh 2000lbs(900kg's)!

About 3 lightyears. Proxima Centauri is a bit closer, 2,7 lightyears or so.
