An earth-like planet has been found in a solar system 20 light years away. It's right smack-dab in the goldilocks zone (meaning it could easily have liquid water), is massive enough to hold an atmosphere, and is about 50-80% the size of the earth.
This is amazing! There could be life there! Or we could colonize it!
