Tiny Alien Planet

Is there life beyond Earth?  Astronomers searching the skies for signs of alien life have found yet another new planet.

FOX News Radio’s Hank Weinbloom has details:

Audio clip:

Have you read “The Little Prince?”  It’s about a little prince from a very small planet.

(“The Little Prince”) “And this whole small world is ruled by the Little Prince.”

That’s from a cartoon version.  Astronomers have discovered a little planet – the tiniest one they’ve ever found – outside the solar system.  It’s about the size of the moon.  It’s probably not the Little Prince’s planet, unless he likes it very hot – surface temperature’s estimated at 700 degrees.

(“The Little Prince”) “Far out in space there is one tiny little planet.”

The search continues for a planet of any size that can support life.
