I thought this was so fascinating -- I just had to share it!
According to researchers, they have found a planet that has similarities to Earth and that might be habitable. The question is: could there already be a species inhabiting it? The super-Earth is called HD 40307g and may even have water on it...
"The longer orbit of the new planet means that its climate and atmosphere may be just right to support life," study co-author Hugh Jones, of the University of Hertfordshire in England, said in a statement. "Just as Goldilocks liked her porridge to be neither too hot nor too cold but just right, this planet or indeed any moons that it has lie in an orbit comparable to Earth, increasing the probability of it being habitable."
Isn't that nutty? Can you imagine if there is already life on this new planet? What if there is another you? What would you hope your alternate person would be like? Creepy and exciting at the same time! It'd be just like the movie Big Business. ha.
