    That is like saying Venus is “Earth Like” for having similar mass and size to the Earth. Both planets are in the habitable zone, yet they couldn’t be any more different. How about we find out more about the planet before calling it “Earth like”.

    Sorry if I sound like a party pooper. But I feel like what the medias are spreading around is misleading. That is why I really like Phil Plait’s article on it: http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2011/12/05/kepler-confirms-first-planet-found-in-the-habitable-zone-of-a-sun-like-star/#more-41652
