New Planets Are Hot News

Back in elementary school, dear Watson, I learned the nine planets. Then Pluto was found to have a moon, Charon, which is over half the size of Pluto. More moons were discovered. Pluto is no longer classified as a planet. I'm disappointed. To add to the confusion, there are planets outside our solar system. Will this madness never cease? Probably not.

Have you ever noticed that whenever a new exoplanet is discovered or inferred, the press goes into overdrive? They seem to want to find planets (and extraterrestrial life) even more than evolutionary cosmologists. At least, that's the impression I get. They will go on about how "Earth-like" these things are, but the press is stranger than fact. Especially when the planet baffles evolutionists.
It might be an interesting place to visit on Star Trek, but you wouldn’t want to live there.   Theoretically, it shouldn’t even exist. 
An exoplanet closest to our Earth in size has been discovered.  Trouble is, it’s being called a “lava world.”  It’s not clear why the press is getting so excited about it.  Science Magazine’s Science Shot leads off with, “Alien World Is More Earth-Like Than Any Found.”  Oh, really?  Only the condemned would want to go there, because “it’s more of a hellish cousin to Earth than a twin,” the article states.
You can fire your jets over to "Earth-Like Planet More Like a Lava Lamp" to finish reading about Kepler-78b, Earth's evil twin.
