+ - Data leak: galaxy rich in Earth-like planets->

Submitted by sciencehabit
sciencehabit (1205606) writes "A leak from an Oxford conference about the Kepler satellite mission reveals that out of approximately 265 planets represented on a particular graph, about 140 were labeled "like Earth"--having a radius smaller than twice Earth's radius. So the unauthorized presentation of preliminary results would seem to confirm that Kepler has succeeded in showing that Earth is no fluke."
