NASA Infrared Telescope Spotted First-Ever Light From Earth-Like Planet
A NASA infrared telescope spotted light from the alien planet 55 Cancri e, which orbits a star 41 light-years from Earth.

The Gist:
For the first time, a telescope was able to detect light from an alien super Earth.

The Spitzer Space Telescope detected the light from the planet 55 Cancri e.

The planet is 41 light-years from Earth and may be in a supercritical fluid state -- and oozing.


Light from an alien "super-Earth" twice the size of our own Earth has been detected by a NASA space telescope for the first time in what astronomers are calling a historic achievement.

and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of him. So shall it be! Amen.

Re: NASA Infrared Telescope Spotted First-Ever Light From Earth-Like Planet
Although the planet is not habitable, detecting it is a historic step in the ongoing search for signs of life on other planets, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., said Tuesday.

Super Earths are more massive than Earth but lighter than gas giants like Neptune. In visible light, such planets are lost in the glare of their stars, but using infrared light the Spitzer telescope was able to detect the super Earth.

The planet, about twice as big and eight times as massive as Earth, orbits a bright star called 55 Cancri in a mere 18 hours.

I hope they detect a planet SMALLER than Earth somewhere...

Well, there was this article posted in January:

A team of astronomers led by scientists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) has discovered the three smallest confirmed planets ever detected outside our solar system.

The three planets, which all orbit a single star, are smaller than Earth and appear to be rocky with a solid surface. Until now, astronomers have found at most only four other rocky planets, also called terrestrial planets, around other stars.

Awesome!!!

I want to live in a planet that is a bit smaller than Earth, so the gravity will be a bit weaker, and I will feel less heavy!

How would you know that the gravity would be weaker?
