Url: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=130215192
Creator: Palca, Joe
Publisher: National Public Radio (U.S.)
Description: Astronomers have, for the first time, spotted a planet that is considered to be in the "Goldilocks zone," meaning that its environment is just right to sustain life: not too hot, not too cold. Scientists approximate that it is about three times the size of earth, and orbits its version of the sun every 37 days.
