– Why aren’t you up for discussing that a new planet has just been discovered?
– I’ve fallen behind schedule and haven’t been watching the news lately but I’d want to talk about it. What planet?
– Never mind.

I researched a bit. An Earth-like planet has been discovered on the star cloud called Sail. Its weight is 3,6 times bigger than that of the Earth. The planet revolves around a dwarf star and has watery fluid on its surface. It’s just within the habitable zone and is situated just a bit further than the Venus from the Sun, thus receiving more energy than the Earth.

There are things you cannot make right.
