Newly discovered Earth-sized planet looks to be life-friendly

Newly discovered planet seems to be life friendly Scientist have discovered a nearby Earth-like exoplanet with conditions favorable to life.

The planet orbits Ross 128, an inactive red dwarf star. The small, dim and quiet sun translates to moderate temperatures on Ross 128b. Scientists suspect the temperate planet may offer them their best chance yet at finding alien life.

"This is the closest Earth-mass planet potentially in the habitable zone that orbits a quiet star," Xavier Bonfils, an astrophysicist at the University of Grenoble Alpes in France, told Space.com.

Ross 128 and Ross 128b lie just 11 light-years from Earth, making the exoplanet the second closest temperate planet after Proxima b.

TVNL Comment:  This planet is only a little more than 60 trillion miles away.  How about a state visit by our President?  Hey, we can dream, can't we?
