    Astronomers on verge of finding Earth's twin

    Eh. this month is the hardest time in the offseason.. waiting for training camp to start... please dont take this as "SharperImage has gone CRAZY" or "SharperImage Wants to die" i use to be on the debate team in school and i love to have these interesting conversations.

    So Instead of us all dying in 2012 we can just move here, but we should leave now seeing it would take 100,000 years to get there at the speed we travel in space now.. Hey just freeze me and unfreeze me

    Is it possible to freeze all of us and ship us to the new earth before 2012

    is there a reason why your entire life revolves around a conspiracy theory sharperimage???
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    meh.

    All of the extra solar planets they have found so far have been at least the size of Uranus <insert joke here>.
    The possibility exists that we will have the technology to find planets closer to Earth's size in the next decade, but even then, the idea of Earth's "twin" is pretty far off.
    Mars and Venus, for instance, would both be considered "Earth sized", but neither one is capable of sustaining any life.

    What scientists are looking for specifically if a rocky, earth sized planet inside the relatively tiny zone around its sun known as the sweet spot - close enough not to freeze, but no so close that it boils.
    That would definately excite the scientific community.

    not sustaining life as out physics allows, but maybe there are some we are get to find out about...
    We're bringing purple back.

    Ah, but physics doesn't change with location.
    But I know what you meant.
    We tend to look at life as something carbon based because we have never found anything else.
    Any element that is able to bond easily to itself as well as a variety of other common elements is able to form complex molecules.
    So far the only element we have discovered that can do an adequate job other than carbon is silicon, but it is too stable for the valence bonds to be broken easily to form the multiple permutations needed to generate life.
    So until we discover more elements, the only kind of life we know to look for is carbon based...

    Re: Astronomers on verge of finding Earth's twin

    An intristing read and I'm definitly in agreement that there are other Earth like Planets in the universe. These planets more than likely contain life as we do here. It will only be a matter of time like they say, I find it incredible that the first planet outside our solar system was discovered in 1990. This was 18 years ago, in another 18 years we should easily triple that knowledge.
