goldilocksmission writes with this snippet from Goldilocks Mission: “News spread recently about a super-earth-sized planet that has been recently discovered to contain one of the most essential compounds for life to exist in the universe: water. … GJ1214b is a massive planet that can house about six earths and is about forty light-years away from us. … The significant discovery leap of detecting Gliese 581d to the more goldilocks planet oriented GJ1214b is a testament to the advances in the technology of detecting earth-like exoplanets.”
