      Another discovery – a strangely crowded system, this one.

      What we need is a planet in the habitable zone with liquid water on it or under an ice shell like Jupiters Europa.

      This in a radius of a few hundred light years and we might see a new increase in space missions funding. ^^

      But it is still interesting what kind of strange systems are created throughout the galaxy/universe.

      How about a planet in the Alpha Centauri system – close enough?

      It may not be in the habitable zone – but it's a really cool discovery.

      The planet in the alpha centauri system may be in tidal lock, and so have a cooler far side. However, it has also been suggested that systems with this type of planet often have other similar small rocky bodies further out as well, so there is still hope for finding another earth-like planet

      Having said that, Mars is fairly earth-like, and all we've sent there so far is robots

      A habitable planet in Alpha Centauri would have been nice. Not that I would experience even a drone landing there in my lifetime, but it would be good to know that there is a realistic option for mankind to reach another planet. ^^
