"Astronomers have detected the first Earth-sized planets, which are orbiting a star similar to our own Sun. In the distant past they may have been able to support life and one of them may have had conditions similar to our own planet -- a so-called Earth-twin -- according to the research team. They have described their findings as the most important planets ever discovered outside our Solar System." (12/20/11)
