Sultry World Found Circling Star GJ 1214
I don't know why I find all the news on exoplanets so geekily fascinating. Something about the idea of jumping to a different world to explore. Hmmm... Must be the sci-fi geek in me. I am anxiously awaiting the first near-Earth they find though. How long do you think ? One year ? Three ?
I still think one of the cool things about this one is that it's close enough that signals from the Earth have already passed it.
