A New Earth In Our Backyard?

From MSN:

Experts say that the new planet they have discovered outside of our solar system is about three times the mass of Earth and slightly larger in width. It is so close to its version of the sun that it orbits every 37 days. It does not rotate much, so one side is almost always bright, the other dark. Temperatures can be as hot as 160 degrees or as cold as minus 25 degrees below zero, but in between, in the land of constant sunrise, it would be “shirt-sleeve weather,” according to co-discoverer Steven Vogt of the University of California at Santa Cruz.
