Scientists discover ‘liveable planet’

WORLD – We know the reason for the season. The presents! It looks like the universe is giving humanity a great-big present just in time for the world to end!

International astronomers think they’ve found five possible planets circling a distant star, that’s a lot like our sun, and one of those planets looks a lot like ours!

With a “Habitable zone” where water could exist, this possible planet, visible in the evening sky and just 12 light years away, has been dubbed “Tau Ceti.”  With five planets ranging from two to six times the mass of earth (and no sign of a Kardashian anywhere in sight) this place sounds like it could be Heaven!

Don’t start packin’ your bags just yet though. Scientists have been wrong before. How long did we think Pluto was a planet for Pete’s sake?
