All hail the super earth!

A new planet has been discovered, and it turns out that “these icy super-Earths are pretty common. Roughly 35 percent of all stars have them.”

Wow! 1/3 of all stars have super earths. I still remember the utter amazement when in high school the first extra solar planet was found, even though it was around a pulsar, so any life would have been blasted off of it long ago. Now we’re over 170 extra solar planets found.

Just awesome.
