And I look just like Joseph Gordon Levitt, only different.

Hotter sounds nice right about now.

We shall call it lady earth. Because it's hotter. And puffier.

The number of planets in the known universe might as well be infinity, of course there has to be another Class M planet somewhere.

Gaah, nothing I hate worse than perusing some nice, round planets only to stumble across puffies. Worst globes ever.

Do you think the admins greenlit this on the basis of the sexual subtext?

You realize peruse is the opposite of skim, right?

Though I guess it works fine here either way.

"The planet orbits its parent red dwarf star once every 23 days."

KOI-314c, exoplanet. A world slightly puffy and hot.
Gentlemen, we can unpuff it. We have the technology. We have the capability to cool the universe's first puffy planet.
KOI-314c will be that planet. Better than it was before. Better, stronger, faster, slightly less puffy and cool to the touch. The six trillion dollar exoplanet.

FTFA - "This planet might have the same mass as Earth, but it is certainly not Earthlike," study lead author David Kipping, of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, said in a statement.
