Geography Article of the Day 12/6/11

The geography article of the day is actually one i read yesterday.  This article and many others that came out yesterday discuss the discovery of the possibility of the most habitable planet besides Earth so far in the Universe!  The planet is named Kepler 22B and has a average surface temperature around 70 degrees!  Sounds nice right? This discovery has many implications, is there other life in the universe? is this planet habitable by us? and of course the geography questions!  This discovery would give the discipline a whole other planet to discover, explore, and study!  Like the geographic explorers of the past, new explorers will be needed to discover and record the new world!  but then again lets not get ahead of ourselves the planet is pretty far away!
