Details about the smallest planet just outside of our solar system were released Wednesday. Turns out CoRoT-7b, as it's called, is a lot like earth in both density and surface, but is unlivable by our standards. At a temperature of between 1,000 and 1,500 Celsius, it's not probable that life could be sustained there. This is big news, however. How many other planets are out there that are somewhat like our own?
