Well not really on the second part but it would be nice.
As you most likely have heard by now, NASA has found a planet that is possibly habitable which is to say that it orbits its sun in a distance that would allow water to exist on the surface. In fact the planet may be a lovely 72 degrees all year long.
The big question that remains unanswered is, what is the surface made of? Studies are underway to find out whether it is gaseous, liquid or solid planet. If it is confirmed to contain a solid surface, which contains water, this would finally put a nail in coffin of the creationist argument that god made earth for us and that we are alone and blah blah blah. For those of us who actually think for themselves, this was a forgone conclusion because in our galaxy alone there are most likely upwards of 4 trillion planets and statistics would favor an earth-like planet existing somewhere in that wonderful star soup.
So whether this planet, named Kepler-22b, is gas or liquid, or plasma or whatever, is not as important as is the idea that it is in the correct position to sustain water thus sustain life. I love science. Checkmate Creationists!
