Re: 1 in 5 stars have earth-like planets around them!

Yeah, um, when astronomers talk about "Earth-like planets" they don't mean Class-M planets like on Star Trek. They basically mean planets similar to Earth, Venus, or Mars. And compared to Jupiter or Mercury, Venus is in fact very Earth-like. Doesn't mean you can breath there though.
