Good news and bad news

Good news…

A super-earth has been found.  It’s about 3.6x bigger than earth and only 35 light years away.

Bad news…

No reason for real estate markets to react.  It’s 35 light years away (that’s small on a universal scale, but a very long way at the speeds we can travel).

More bad news…

If it supports intelligent life that has learned to communicate with radio, like we have, within the last 30 to 35 years, we’d probably be hearing something from them by now.  I think.
