New Planet Discovered 2010; A Planet Gliese 581g Like Earth?

New planet discovered 2010 Gliese 581G promises to be like earth. The planet, which orbits a red dwarf star like our sun, is located within the "Goldilocks" zone - meaning that it is the right temperature to sustain life. Of course, the planet doesn't rotate on its axis so it's day on one side, night on the other.

Many people are excited about this discovery, as it could possibly point to one step closer to finding intelligent life out in space or on another planet. Of course, it is 20 light years away and would take hundreds of years to reach with our technology.

Still yet, scientists will use tools available to study the planet, send out messages, and perhaps try to learn about the environment and makeup of the planet. For all we know, it could be made of all gas, or even all ice.


This is a break through discovery, and one which is out of this world. What do you think of the new planet discovered 2010 Gliese 581G ... do you hope it's exactly like earth?
