I CLAIM IT: Potentially Earth-Like Planet Found Nearby

December 20, 2012


Astronomers have discovered what they believe is a five-planet solar system orbiting Tau Ceti, a star with very similar luminosity to our sun. And one of those planets is the proper distance away from its sun "to sport mild temperatures, oceans of liquid water, and even life." Plus it's only a scant 12-light years away from earth! That is like, not far at all in the grand scheme of the universe. In the not so grand scheme of humanity though that's like, traveling at the speed of light for 12 years just to get there. "We'll never make it." Well not with the way you drive!

Thanks again to Bria and MannaFromKevin, who actually sent their tips from space because they wanted to get a head start on being the first to get there. Smart thinking, guys -- TOO BAD I SABOTAGED YOUR HYPER-DRIVES. First one to touch the planet gets to keep it!
