Good News: Habitable Planet Is "Incredibly Close"

Exit strategy.

By "habitable," they mean the planet is four times the mass of the earth.

Um.

Well whatever.

The planet, named Wolf 1061c, orbits a star 14 light years away - about a third closer than the next nearest potentially inhabitable planet, which was found in 2013.

Astronomers described the planet as "an incredibly close object" even though it is 80 trillion miles away and about 100 times too faint to be seen with the naked eye.

...


"The middle planet Wolf 1061c, is orbiting within the so-called 'Goldilocks zone' the habitable zone where it might be possible for liquid water and maybe even life to exist," Mr Wright said.

In other I Love Science Sexually news, some scientists have made up some bullshit which they claim proves that humans domesticated dogs 33,000 years ago.

By the way, here's the picture they run with this article. See, it's all about the dogs.

I was confused, but Andy explained it to me: Sweater puppies, dude.

Ah.

Man's best friend came about after generations of wolves scavenged alongside humans more than 33,000 years ago in south east Asia, according to new research.

Dogs became self-domesticated as they slowly evolved from wolves who joined humans in the hunt, according to the first study of dog genomes.

And it shows that the first domesticated dogs came about 33,000 years ago and migrated to Europe, rather than descending from domesticated European wolves 10,000 years ago as had previously been thought.

Have you ever wondered if the myth of dragons came down from the discovery of dinosaur bones?

Well, maybe this how all those legends of trolls and ogres came about.
