First Earth-like exoplanet

Recently the first Earth like planet outside our own Solar System was found. The article can be found here.

The planet is about twice the diameter of our own Earth with a mass about 5 times that of Earth. We would probably feel rather heavy on that one.

When will we see the next one ? I am sure there are others within our range.
