"We have learned now that we cannot regard this planet as being fenced in and a secure abiding place for Man." - The War of the Worlds With less fanfare than H.G. Wells's science fiction, but no less of the sweep, scientists in Montreal this week are conjuring new Earths.

This time, it's for real.

Spotting Earth's twin is tantalizingly close - perhaps a year or two away - a conference of the world's top space scientists was told yesterday.

"Everywhere we can look for planets we are finding them," said Sara Seager, a Torontonian who teaches physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "Everyone wants to meet an alien," Seager said, "but (extraterrestrial) life might just be bacteria."


Well if these scientists say they will live to see this moment, then I guess I can too!


Not sure what to make of this though, I mean, I know we are not alone but how can they be so sure about what they are saying? Is this part of disclosure? Preparing us for what be right next door?

Is this maybe Nibiru?
or exactly the twin of earth...
how scary...

It's just a question of time, we need better telescopic readings and then the size of the planets we can see gradually comes down to Earth size. Then there's a probability they're at the right distance from their star to be just warm, a one or more oceans of water and we're off. Been waiting for it for a while.

You have to remember that they hardly ever (if at all) actually resolve these extra solar system planets with any of our current telescopes... Instead they have to make measurements on things like the wobble in the star and spectral analysis of the light that passes through the planets atmosphere as the planet passes in front of it's star.

Great find!


I see it as hope, but I must admit that sometimes Hollywood gets the better of me and I feel slightly scared as to what these planets might hold. I feel hypocritical that I ask for utopia from these twin planets, but can't offer it myself from my own planet.

By the looks of things we are approaching an era where a lot of changes will be seen. These changes I don't believe will be hidden by our governments. The question will be right now, are we ready for this? I know a lot of us want to see proof of space beings and the like but is the rest of the world in sync?

All I know is that I will be watching the skies like our scientists trying to see if I get a glimpse of the so called Earth Twin!
Makes me wonder, if the Earth has a twin, do I have a twin on that Earth too?

It's a worry too, if life as we know it can inhabit it, then so can we........ and lead to all the devastation that would incur with our present attitudes. I really hope we don't sort it out getting there before we sort our scrap heap aka beautiful planet out.

Doesn't seem to be anything new in this article. If and when an Earthlike planet is found it will be wonderfully exciting but the only thing surprising about it would be the fact that it was able to be found, not that it's there.

A piece of fluff.

Bravo. Very well said, friend.

Er... it's referring to finding another planet like earth, in the galaxy. Not Nibiru.
basically on the assumption that life would evolve in a similar pattern on a planet similar to ours.

oh my god, that isnt planet x, they are finding exoplanets orbiting different stars and in the kuiper belt and the article says that discovering them is now only becoming easier and that they have a possibility of finding a planet which has a earth like mass and atmosphere orbiting around another star, that they state as 'Earth's twin'.

Gah! They did not literally mean Earth’s twin, it was a metaphor. They just meant they would soon be discovering Earth like planets, as in ones capable of sustaining life, nothing more complicated than that. Not niburu or a weird parallel planet with your evil twin wearing a goatee.

I was looking through the most recent issue of Nexus Magazine last night. One of its articles is about the possibility of "Earth's twin" being on the opposite side of the sun, so it's visually undetectable.

My impulse was to recoil at the hokiness, but then I started to wonder: as unlikely as it is, is it possible?

Any information on where and when this conference took place with "Top Space Scientists?" I have not heard of this and I'm wondering if you have a source/link/video/statement or anything else that can back your claim of this conference; and who were the space scientists... any names?

Many searches now... can't find anything about this conference
