Universe Today - Large Rocky Planet Discovered

A large rocky planet has been discovered in another solar system. This is the first rocky exoplanet ever discovered, all the rest being gass giants. You annot really call it earth like however, certainly not something that people would want to colonise, having 7.5 times more mass and orbits it's star in only 2 days meaning that it must be very very close and so very very hot.

Perhaps we could call it Planet Guardian. Its inhabitants think that it resembles Earth, but it is far more different than it is similar.
