Goldilocks and the Ten Planets

Not too hot, not too cold, eat up!   (Public Domain)
NASA’s Kepler telescope might be the first to detect that life exists on other planets.  

Kepler researcher Mario Perez recently had this to say:  Are we alone?  Maybe Kepler today has told us indirectly, although we need confirmation, that we are probably not alone.  Perez was referring to the discovery of 10 additional planets with earthlike qualities.

These 10 planets are in a Goldilocks zone, meaning that their size and temperature can probably support life.  Seven of them “circle stars that are just like ours, not cool dwarf ones…”

Whereas scientists had initially hoped to find 1% of stars with earthlike planets, they are now thinking it could be more like 60%.  This bodes well for fans of ET.
