This is a thread about "Earth 2", also called "Gliza", technically Gliese 581c. It is a planet ten lightyears away from Earth and is orbiting a red dwarf star. It's old news, but I still think it's worth discussing. The exciting thing about it is it is the most earthlike planet found to date. It has temperatures ranging from 32 to 104 degrees F and liquid water. One can speculate that if this is accurate information, it has all the conditions of a second Earth; a fully inhabitable planet. However, some planetologists calculate that it is impossible for a planet to remain inhabitable after its orbit star has become a red dwarf - that it would cause all water to evaporate and all surface matter to become irradiated. But if the initial astronomers were right, and this is Earth 2, it's pretty cool. Imagine what kinds of life could be there.
