"Located in our solar system" LOL!! Epic Fail!!!
Gliese 581g: Earth 2.0 - YouTube
Oh my god the cybermen!!!!
The BBC has this article for those who can't be bothered with Youtube.
BBC News - Kepler 22-b: Earth-like planet confirmed
This is awesome news, or really bad if it turns out that aliens come and kill us all.
why they call it "Kepler 22-b"? The name is "Gliese 581g" ...yes awesome news indeed!! To bad we will never get there in my life time!
Sweet! And if the aliens come, well they wont be saying my backyard bunker was a bad idea then
It was discovered in the Kepler 22 system, which was named by the team of the Kepler Space Telescope.
Every time I hear these stories it reminds me instantly of this:
Well.. there could be our Vulcans! Star Trek here we come!
We should probably finish runing this one before we move on to others no?
At last we've finally find Krypton now we've are Superman.
can see this causing a stir religiously if life is found there some day
Same here! And everyone called me crazy...we'll see who's laughing when they're piles of radioactive slime and I'm safe and sound hundreds of feet underground. I just hope I don't forget my can opener.
This & Europa are on top of the alien list. This stuff blows my mind, and it's aggervating at the same time knowing that very few answers will come from this lifetime.
Suprised it took so long to discover it.
It's neat they can discover other suns by their wobble, and how they found that massive black hole in the center of our milky way, or how dark matter is everywhere and why we wouldnt be here without it.
Yeah, not to mention the shattered glass world.
Now comes the competition to see who can figure out how to get a probe there.
If they can simulate some form of Nuclear warp drive it might be possible to send an unmanned drone.
I know. It's really unfortunate that it will take so long to send any probe there. And only after we send the probe, would we even consider sending any people there. Hopefully rockets become much much faster within the next decade and the travel time becomes shortened considerably.
I'm getting a little off topic here, but what if it's not a new planet, but rather another Earth from a parallel dimension. Just imagine if it was like a shattered glass version of out world as one of the posters before me said. That would be funny and scary at the same time.
