'Earth 2.0'

Given today's lecture I think it's rather fitting that Earth's 'twin' has been found....albeit 600 lightyears away.

Just like Professor Miller said it would the article states that the planet sits within the "habitable zone". The researchers also have calculated the size of the planet, the complexion of the star, and the orbit of the planet just like Professor Miller said they would. Pretty amazing they can do that to something 600 lightyears away. I wonder if that planet is looking back at us wondering if we have life?
