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!

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!
