second earth

Astronomers in Geneva have found an Earth-like planet in the Goldilocks zone! (For those of you who haven't been following astronomy for the past few years, that's the not-too-hot, not-too-cold range believed to be ideal for the formation of life.) No word on whether or not it has water (which, by the way, they also found recently on an extrasolar planet--an uninhabitable gas giant, sadly) but chances are good.

Also, have a picture of an exploding sunlike star.
