...or maybe not so strange! In fact, rather Earth-like, with similar mass and in the so-called Habitable Zone.

Cosmic Census Finds Billions of Planets That Could Be Like Earth

Quote
Astronomers reported Monday that there could be as many as 40 billion habitable Earth-size planets in the galaxy, based on a new analysis of data from NASA’s Kepler spacecraft.

The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

At the rate we're messing up this Earth, we may have to.

I sense a TV series in that...oh, wait...
