Star 15 light years away has two Earth-like planets

The good news: two temperate planets with Earthlike-mass orbit a red dwarf star "only" 15 light years away. The bad news: that close to their star—0.045 AUs—they're tidally locked to it and the very hypothetical goldilocks climate band on the planet's surface suggests life not as we know it, if at all. Be sure to take everything you need to create a tip-top Earthlike ecology, and hope there's a nice spot! Lots of fun science-fictional speculation at Hacker News.
