The Real Estate Market is Bigger Than We Thought

NASA discovers fifth planet in 55 Cancri system - Telegraph Other solar systems similar to our own. Cool.
Nasa scientists last night unveiled a newly-discovered planet orbiting a star in a system which now becomes the first known to contain at least five planets.
...
Professor Geoff Marcy, an astronomer at the University of California, in Berkeley, said the discovery meant complex planetary systems like are own are now likely to be far more frequent than previously believed.
So there may be somewhere to go after all. Still, at 41 light years, that is a long way. That's roughly 245 trillion miles.

It still appeals to the science geek in me.
