Coming across FoxNews now, with an interview with Michio Kaku . The teaser before break said Earths twin found. Michio Kaku stated this is a major discovery.

As soon as more info comes ill post. Also the thread title is not mine. Its the terminology Fox News used.

EDIT to add -
Scientists found a planet that is most likely capable of supporting life.

20 light years away - Gilese 581G apparently is confirmed as the planet

Possibility of a liquid water.

Yes gelise 581 has been talked about, but if people remember the claims made were disputed by other scientists. Apparently confirmation was made.

Here is an article from a few days ago talking about it. As soon a Fox or another source talks about it I will post the link.

It's Fox News, therefore at least considered with a high level of doubt. Could you post their sources, if mentioned?

Are they proposing a war to "bring democracy"?

Not too excited about this thread. They've said this many times...

"The New Earth"

"A new planet was found 25 galaxies from Earth that might be able to sustain life. The temperature is just right on the planet."

"It'll take us 100 years to get there. So we'll never know."

Exciting no? It's been talked about for the past few years in scientific circles. This is from the December, 2010 issue of
New Scientist Space.

Which twin? The evil twin that launches comets at us or the good twin that can support life?

Which is it?

But according to some dude that posts on here, isn't Venus or Saturn really inhabitable and we already have bases there or some nonsense?

It would explain Herman Cain, as I'm convinced he isn't from this planet.

When will Fox do a hard-hitting expose on that?

Yeah it happens when viewers are led to believe it would air when they come back from commercial break.

They are at a break now and supposedly the next segment after break is the info.

Its Geliese 581G..

Apparently there is the possibility of liquid water on the surface. Its been discussed sometime back but the scientific community was split on the claim. Apparently the newest info is confirmation.

Not quite the earth shattering ET has been found. However, its nice to know we are still looking.

Ahhh this is so exciting!! Back when 581 star system was discovered one of the scientists was quoted saying that there is a 100% possibility that life exists on one of these planets.

WE NEED TO SEND PROBES

What did I say... Nothing to see here really, just another crack at getting us all hyped up for nothing. When they send someone out there in one of the U.S. governments top spacecraft I'll get excited.

Normally I would agree with you however I have never seen Michio Kaku over hype a discovery. Usually he debunks or offers other possibilities.

He seemed excited so who knows.

There may be liquid water.
Gliese 581G is well set within the "goldilocks zone" so the chances are good but there is no "confirmation". We don't have the means of confirming it.

www.dailymail.co.uk...

A planet which orbits its star in 37 days and always shows the same face to it. Strange worlds.
