Quite possibly the dumbest paraphrase I've read in the news: "Gould suspects that the planet is a bare, icy Earth-like one, a sort of cold 'super-Earth', although he cannot be certain." Does the phrase, "earth-like" mean anything to anyone? If it is bare, icy, and thirteen times heavier, is it really "earth-like"? I would assume that an earth-like planet would be warm, watery, have a relatively thick atmosphere, and be a binary planet, at the least.
