Next up, the Earth twins — if the results hold, looks like we’ve now found evidence of Neptune-sized planets around other stars, and predictions are more are on the way. No visual sightings of these small ones for a long time, if ever, from our solar system, but the more of these suckers turn up, the more interesting our already very interesting universe gets. I admit it would be nice to make some sort of interstellar contact in my lifetime, but I’ll stand for knowing that the more time goes on the more it becomes clearer that the Earth isn’t as unique as all that.
