Earth-like planets may in fact be common in the galaxy, increasing the likelihood of extraterrestrial life.

By observing the remains of smashed up asteroids around dead stars, astronomers were able to deduce their chemical composition. They found that the dust of many chewed-up asteroids resembles the materials inside Earth and the other small, rocky inner planets of our solar system.

"We found evidence that this asteroid dust is similar to rocks on Earth," said UCLA astronomer Michael Jura in a press conference today at the American Astronomical Society meeting in Long Beach, California. "This strengthens suspicions that Earth-like planets are common."

There has always been the accepted mathmatical probability of Earth like planets scattered across the galaxy, and even byond into other galaxies.



Cheers!!!!

In my own personal opinion I think it logical to assume that there is definitely life out there instead of the other way around like most people tend to believe since the universe is so big and vast we surely can’t be the only ones alive it just seems silly and illogical to assume that

Top NASA scientists believe numerous bodies within our solar system have life (Mars, Europa and Titan.)

It is absolute facetious to assume we are alone - it is conceivable to believe, fundamentally, that life is vibrant and flourishing in the universe (not just the Milky Way.)

Who?

It's kind of funny, if you head over to NASA's website now(as opposed to a few years ago) the outlook has changed from looking at the stars, and observing.
They are now Activly Seeking life on mars, yet to no avail(yeah right!)

There are now a lot of Companys, set up by the public. and Many countries going into space. also Commercial spaceflight is becoming more possible.
Best to start leaking things now eh?

As the technology gets better, I wonder how many Earth sized planets will be found close to our own solar system? It seems that gas giants are very common indeed.
