Earth like planet found!

I read about the Earth like planet that is lights years away in space... shame so far away... there was also an interesting programme on TV just the other day about this; mentioned quite a bit about it, but didn't seem to mention anything about having life on it. Perhaps too far away to know! However, this planet is just the right distance away from it's Sun, very much like Earth. I hope to find out more... seems this is one of many being found now, very interesting!

If we did make contact, we would probably send them a message: Hi there! Take a long time to get a reply though! Would they understand our language, probably not!
