NASA Discovers Earth 2.0?!!?

Forums - General Discussion - NASA Discovers Earth 2.0?!!?

                                                       

At long last, NASA found a planet just as hospitable as Earth! But it may be wrong to label it Earth 2.0...

The facts:

Its (Kepler-452b's) distance from its Sun is similar to our Earth's distance from our Sun.

It is 60% larger than Earth.

Kepler's Sun is more than 6 billion years old and is 1.5 billion years older than our Sun. Therefore Kepler 452b is older than our Earth! So maybe we're Earth 2.0  or Kepler-452b 2.0

Its oceans are getting dried up because of runaway greenhouse effect.  Reread the link below to double check this but couldn't find it. Must have read it somewhere else?

It's 1400 light years away.

So it's too far away and its water is drying up but its amazing to find the first planet just as similar as Earth! We can only imagine what sort of intelligent creatures lived there and if they escaped the planet before its current green house problem. And who knows if they had beings who gazed on our solar system as well?

Can't help but think I've heard this name somewhere before. We'll find intelligent life soon; within our lifetimes; on another planet no doubt.

And I can't wait for it to happen! I think the best part about this news is how much older this planet is compared to our Earth. It really shows how young we are in the whole universe! On the other hand, it could also mean that we may be the few remaining ones and all the older ones before us have died.



So it is actually Mars 2.0 or Mars is Mars 2.0?

Maybe we've been on Earth 2.0 this whole time!

Well it says that planet if way older than our planet. :)

Technically we would be on Kepler 2.0. Seeing as that planet is 6.5 billion years older than earth.



psn- tokila

add me, the more the merrier.

We will probably never know if there is life on that planet at least in our lifetimes...

This is incorrect. I got confused too when reading it. Kepler 454b's host star is 1.5bn older than the sun, not Kepler 452b it self. The planet, Kepler 452b is more than 6bn years old.

Regardless of what it's called, it's pretty interesting to hear about
