Default Another Earth Just 12 Light-Years Away?

Researchers have perhaps found an Earth like planet just 12 light years away.

Astronomers have discovered what may be five planets orbiting Tau Ceti, the closest single star beyond our solar system whose temperature and luminosity nearly match the sun's. If the planets are there, one of them is about the right distance from the star to sport mild temperatures, oceans of liquid water, and even life.

Around this time last year, articles were being written about this. I know it's a big deal, but not exactly a news flash anymore.

My friend searched exoplanets. He has found some, but most of them are simillar to Jupiter. But who knows? Maybe we'll find Pandora.
It's a question if the scientists really find planet in good distance with good mass and all important things, how we'll study it? How to contect its people. Will they be friendly? And there is many similar questions...
