The 'Holy Grail' of planets discovered
We’ve been hearing about potentially millions of billions of trillions of planets existing in the galaxy for months now with the discoveries that Kepler has given us. Finally, it appears that astronomers have found a planet that people could maybe live on. But… Scientists found the planet, Gliese 667Cc, orbiting around a red dwarf star, 22 light years away from the earth. Which is really far away.. So don’t pack your bags yet. You’re confined to the little blue dot for the time being. Future generations though may make it more important to get off this dot depending on how many resources have been depleted by the time we master the art of light year travel..
