    Scientists find "Super Earth" orbiting nearby star

    It is an awesome find. In the distand future it would be probobly one of the planets humans are likely to visit. Gravity might be a problem though. Without gravity manipulation technology landing, surviving and lifting off from such a planet is going to be a challenge.

    Well this planet is not inhospitable but it is interesting. A planet so big yet rocky is unusual.
