OK...we can stop worrying about Earth! Thank goodness, too, because it was getting to be quite complex. Scientists in the UK have discovered the first Earth-shaped, Earth-temperature planet in the galaxy that is not, in fact, Earth. And it's only 20 light years away!
It wouldn't be a perfect new home, with an 19-day year and an aging star, but it's nice to know that there are alternatives out there.
OK...I'm being facetious...but it is pretty cool nonetheless. For more information, see The Guardian.
