A Vacation Planet

Ahhhh!  Home away from home.  For the first time, they’ve discovered a planet which is like Earth in atmosphere.  They think it has water, and may support life.  Its temperatures range from 32 degrees to 102 degrees.  And it’s 1.5 times larger than our Earth.

A few downsides — the year there is only 14 days.

Since we’ve all but broken this planet, maybe it’s time to think about moving.  We better get started.  Its 120,000,000,000,000 miles away (even at the speed of light, it’ll take us 20 years to get there).

The planet, by the way, has the name 581-c.  I think we need a name change.
