Just 20 light-years away, there is a newly discovered planet that is the right size and distance from its star to support life.
Discovery News has the full scoop, including:
"Personally, given the ubiquity and propensity of life to flourish wherever it can, I would say that the chances for life on this planet are 100 percent. I have almost no doubt about it," Steven Vogt, professor of astronomy and astrophysics at University of California Santa Cruz, told Discovery News.Well, that's a rather rash statement to make, if you ask me. But I hope he's correct.
And I never doubt Kaku.
