Astronomers: Another Earth-Size Planet May Be Habitable

Astronomers have potentially discovered another Earth-size habitable planet in our corner of the galaxy, according to new findings published in Astronomy and Astrophysics. The planet, which circles a small red star called Ross 128, may hold liquid water, among other conditions favorable for sustaining life. Ross 128 and the planet are only about 11 light-years from Earth.

Xavier Bonfils, of the Institute of Planetology and Astrophysics in Grenoble, France, told The New York Times that “Ross 128 is one of the quietest stars of the neighborhood.” Read more at the NEW YORK TIMES.

  1. Great! Now Hillary can stop whining and become president to her constituents and liberals from all over the world in the newly discovered habitable planet. And the best part is that she can even bring along all Muslim refugees she was planning to bring in to the US before the 2016 election, and shalom al yisrael.

  2. See Ohr Hashem by Rav Chesdai Crescas, Maamar 4, Perek 2, p 401, and Sefer haBris by Pinchas Eliyahu ben Meir Horowitz, Maamar 3, Perek 4, p 50 for interesting hashkofos on extraterrestrial life.
