Massive leap in search for habitable planets

Another interesting article in today’s Christian Science Monitor.

When I was a kid, the idea of space colonization seemed distant, not likely to be obtained anywhere close to my lifetime. Recent discoveries of planets in “hospitable zones,” and now advances in determining their mass, make the prospect seem not so remote. I will still not live to see it happen, but I think that we are becoming witness to baby steps in that direction.
