Don't they find another planet they call Earth's twin every few years or so?



Yes. It's a misleading headline to get people to give a shit.

You stole my thoughts exactly

This is rather pointless, because it will take at least several millenia to ever get close to that planet.

Ah well, ha .. I've never really payed attention to any news at all, especially about astronomy or whatever .. I saw this earlier when i'd just woke up, their headline took advantage of me in my vulnerable state.

I haven't been aware of this. Confirmation of discovery isn't the same as discovering something new.

According to that article, mars is hospitable. Not that I've been there, but there's something about a bunch of dust that doesn't come screaming home to me.

There's a new one of these every month, (or a new article about one,) but we'll never be any closer to finding alien life. We'll probably never find anything more interesting than 'theoretically this planet might be situated in a zone where it might just get enough heat from it's sun - which may or may not be as hot we think it is - so that it might or might not be able to have liquid water, - if it has any water at all - which may or may not be the key to life as we know it.'


I actually do think that there's some form of alien life out there somewhere. I just doubt we're going to find it on one of the many 'earth-like' planets we've 'found.'

True, for some reason I think alien life would find us before we would find them.

Okay you're right. We'd have to build little bio domes for it to be habitable. I suppose if it was hospitable we could set up camp and sing kumbaya as soon as we step off the ship, right?

It depends on what you class as an 'Alien' life-form I guess.. to a lot of people it's something that isn't a Carbon based life-form (like us) .. I think I heard somewhere they discovered some kinda species somewhere that is a Sulphur based life-form .. so technically you could say that's alien.

The more planets they find like this the more data they can collect to figure out if any of them support life. And you can't blame them for making excitable articles about it with fancy artist renditions of said planets to generate more interest.

Though I'm waiting for one of them to slip and use a Starcraft 2 loading screen planet.

Never heard that but I know they found an arsenic based life too in california. It literally didn't have carbon in it's DNA.

Once someone starts the 1.5 million year old alien reactor under the Pyramid Mine on Mars, it will become hospitable.
#24
I think there's probably life in some form or another on a lot more planets than we know/realise/care to think. In our lifetimes, we'll probably never get a decent reading on planets like Neptune or Pluto, never mind other galaxies hundreds of light years away.
So I've given up being that interested in what they find really, unless it's a giant silver disc with pretty lights heading straight for us from outside the solar system.

I will listen to these jerks when and ONLY when they report someone staring back at them through a telescope on "earth's twin".

That's be hellacool yo.

As much as I like learning about space and stuff, everyone reporting a possible second Earth that's so far away it's not even funny, is ****ing useless. Cool it could possibly sustain life, not cool, we'll never ever be able to ****ing get to it.

I'm almost certain that isn't true. Arsenic isn't even chemically similar to carbon.

I believe that was later shown to have been a misunderstanding, but don't quote me on that.
My signature lacks content. It is, however, blue.

No, they found a planet in the habitable zone, they still don't know if it's made of rock or gas or whatever.

They've found plenty of potentially habitable Earth-like planets. The problem is distance.
