    Not too big, not too small. Not too hot, not too cold. A newly discovered planet looks just right for life as we know it, according to an international group of astronomers. VOA’s Steve Baragona has more.

    It is interesting one of the astronomers is optimistic that the next generation telescopes should be able to confirm the existence of life out there--though it won't happen in his lifetime. Some of us read in this more than just advancement in science. This world is witnessing a huge leap in knowledge. I know that this discovery may not mean much to the creator of the universe given the astronomical distances involved. Good luck NASA

    But the right temperature and moving in the exact habitable orbit don't make it a perfect Earth. There is still much more out there to find out; however I must remark those scientists have done a great work. Hope this new planet would be good for life for sure...!
