Submission + - Earth II located, ships to begin boarding soon

Ptahian writes: The first Earth like exoplanet has been located by our European friends at ESO:

The planet was discovered by the European Southern Observatory's telescope in La Silla, Chile, which has a special instrument that splits light to find wobbles in different wave lengths. Those wobbles can reveal the existence of other worlds. What they revealed is a planet circling the red dwarf star, Gliese 581. http://apnews.myway.com/article/20070424/D8ON8OSG0 .html
