BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | Planet-hunters set for big bounty

News articles like this make me wonder how common Earth-like planets are. I hope in my lifetime, I find out, and to find out if there is intelligent extraterrestrial life. I am fairly certain there is life on other planets, like microbes. Hell, they are finding microbes here on earth in the most unusual places, so why not here in our solar system, like Triton.
