Other Solar Systems Might Be More Habitable Than Ours
George Dvorsky   Dec 11, 2012   io9  

Our Earth feels like a warm and welcoming place for us life forms, but beyond our little planet, the majority of the solar system is too cold for us to live comfortably. But a new study suggests that planets in other solar systems might be more habitable than our own because, on the whole, they would be warmer — up to 25 % warmer.
