An Alien Ocean

I have stated on many occasions that I do not believe we are the only planet in the universe that has life. So I’m quite excited when astronomers in the U.K said that they found two places that look promising in the search for Earth-like planets.

Astronomers said that Gliese 581d, was in the prime habitable zone for potential life. This means that the planet is in a region around its sun that would allow water to be liquid on the planet's surface. Even more exciting was the possibility that Gliese 581d may have a "large and deep" ocean.

Unfortunately Gliese 581d are located in constellation Libra (which happen to be my sign also) so by the time mankind get there I be dead and gone already. Oh well, guess no aliens for me!
