On May 2, scientists from MIT, the University of Liège, and elsewhere announced they had discovered a planetary system, a mere 40 light years from Earth, that hosts three potentially habitable, Earth-sized worlds. Judging from the size and temperature of the planets, the researchers determined that regions of each planet may be suitable for life.

Now, in a paper published today in Nature, that same group reports that the two innermost planets in the system are primarily rocky, unlike gas giants such as Jupiter. The findings further strengthen the case that these planets may indeed be habitable. The researchers also determined that the atmospheres of both planets are likely not large and diffuse, like that of the Jupiter, but instead compact, similar to the atmospheres of Earth, Venus, and Mars.
Two potentially habitable planets in nearby system are confirmed to be rocky.

Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada | International Space Station
Tim Peake: "First time I’ve seen Newfoundland free of cloud…spring has sprung!"
Looking North to St. Pierre and Miquelon

Newfoundland and Labrador is the most easterly province of Canada. Situated in the country's Atlantic region, it comprises the island of Newfoundland and mainland Labrador to the northwest, with a combined area of 405,212 square kilometers (156,500 sq mi). 

Overseas collectivity of Saint Pierre and Miquelon is a self-governing territorial overseas collectivity of France, situated in the northwestern Atlantic Ocean near Newfoundland. It is the only remnant of the former colonial empire of New France that remains under French control. The islands are situated at the entrance of Fortune Bay, which extends into the southern coast of Newfoundland, near the Grand Banks.They are 3,819 kilometers (2,373 mi) from Brest, the nearest point in Metropolitan France, but 25 kilometers (16 mi) from the Burin Peninsula of Newfoundland, Canada.

This is the pic of a space shuttle leaving our atmosphere taken from space by NASA. Amazing isn't it? How nano are we in the cosmic scale.

Scientists have grown their own eyes - retinas, corneas, the eye's lens - and used them to restore sight.
Biologists have discovered a new way to grow the tissues that make up the human eyeball using only a small sample of adult skin.

Astronomers say a Neptune-sized planet lurks beyond Pluto
Science Magazine Article by Eric Hand | Jan. 20, 2016
The solar system appears to have a new ninth planet. Today, two scientists announced evidence that a body nearly the size of Neptune—but as yet unseen—orbits the sun every 15,000 years. During the solar system’s infancy 4.5 billion years ago, they say, the giant planet was knocked out of the planet-forming region near the sun. Slowed down by gas, the planet settled into a distant elliptical orbit, where it still lurks today.

The claim is the strongest yet in the centuries-long search for a “Planet X” beyond Neptune. The quest has been plagued by far-fetched claims and even outright quackery. But the new evidence comes from a pair of respected planetary scientists, Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, who prepared for the inevitable skepticism with detailed analyses of the orbits of other distant objects and months of computer simulations. “If you say, ‘We have evidence for Planet X,’ almost any astronomer will say, ‘This again? These guys are clearly crazy.’ I would, too,” Brown says. “Why is this different? This is different because this time we’re right...

Excellent inner city park. Nice trails, large old trees, and great views of the city skyline as a backdrop.
