Did you ever have one of those days when you needed some distance from reality? American homicide, capitalist corruption, Syrian tyranny – please gents, could I take the day off? Seemingly we have a new hot nearby planet.

“Scientists have discovered what appears to be an alien planet just two-thirds the size of Earth, a heat-blasted world perhaps covered in molten lava, a new study reports.
Astronomers discovered the newfound alien planet, known as UCF-1.01, using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. The diminutive world is just 33 light-years away, making it a near neighbor of Earth in the cosmic scheme of things. "We have found strong evidence for a very small, very hot and very near planet with the help of the Spitzer Space Telescope study lead author Kevin Stevenson, of the University of Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando, said in a statement. "Identifying nearby small planets such as UCF-1.01 may one day lead to their characterization using future instruments."

Amidst the visions of 6 parallel dimensions, and form as mere reflection of the unmanifested realm, reality is only existence. Suffering arises only when I resist, when I try to be something, instead of just "be". Comfort arrives in recognizing the inevitable rescue of death. The human "life-form" is overrated. Life (existance) is enough, all else is just form, the art of living. Death is a holiday.

I think it's the third planet to be discovered orbiting the red dwarf Gliese 436 (close to the bright star Denebola in Leo). If you really want to get away from it all, shows and describes all the local stars that could have habitable planets. It also contains useful 3D maps if you get lost piloting the starship to get you there.
