Here is the most earth-like extra solar planet ever found outside the sol system.


You can read more here and help give it a new name, preferably "Reach" (we all know why) here.

Saw this on Bungie, hopefully it will win.

The planet, though, is nothing like Reach.

Yeah Reach isn't a huge ocean planet at a temperature of 300+ degree's farenheit...

I can't wait until they can find planets the relative size of Earth.

Then my precious New Mercury will have the possibility of existing!

Anywho, on another note, terraforming Very Happy

What a wonderful sight indeed, a terraformed Mars! Just what Carl Sagan would want.

I'm against naming it Reach. The planet itself is nothing like Reach, and I'm sure we'll find plenty of more appropriate planets in the future. Wasting a name like Reach now on a planet that is only "earth-like" because there is water is just a shame.

Noooo!!!

Do we really want to name a possibly very important planet after something that probably wont even be popular in ten years?

Hmmm... now that you think about it you're right. I didn't vote personally, but I don't think that "Siberia" is going to win Razz

But naming it Siberia would be extremely ironic, and would cause people to chuckle.

You really over estimate "people". They wouldn't probably wouldn't even get the comedy in that.

The page I looked at had more Reach and only one Siberia. I think the Siberia was a widget anyway.

On the other hand, does it have a hellhole of an iceball twin? Siberia Prime needs a real-life counterpart.

Then don't vote on the name...

I don't know, even with having water tha planet is at a temperature of 300+ farenheit, the only organism that can survive a temperature near that is deep in the ocean, microbes that live off the vents. However, thats around 280 degree's...

I didn't outright deny the existence of life on that planet dud, there is a very good chance indeed, however, it would be a very exotic form of life.

I'd imagine that if life did survive on that planet, it would have to be durable as hell.

There's no way to tell how deep the oceans are right now, but if life did exist, it would have to be pretty deep down to escape the extreme heat, or be very resistant to the heat itself.
