The Independent - ‎43 minutes ago‎


A planet with conditions that could support life orbits a twin neighbour of the sun visible to the naked eye, scientists have revealed.

Is this Nibs?

Melbourne: Scientists using an intra-galactic speed gun have detected five new planets, relatively close to Earth, and one of them is orbiting a star's habitable zone, where conditions are suitable for life.

Re: Scientists find 'habitable' Tau Ceti planet.
"This discovery is in keeping with our emerging view that virtually every star has planets, and that the galaxy must have many such potentially habitable Earth-sized planets," says Steve Vogt, a professor of astronomy and astrophysics at UC Santa Cruz.

"We are now beginning to understand that nature seems to overwhelmingly prefer systems that have multiple planets with orbits of less than 100 days. This is quite unlike our own solar system, where there is nothing with an orbit inside that of Mercury. So our solar system is, in some sense, a bit of a freak and not the most typical kind of system that Nature cooks up."

Tau Ceti a near neighbor, at 12 light years away, it has the same spectral classification as our sun. Previously, the nearest planet believed to be capable of supporting life - found just last month - was 42 light years away.

They are "coming" closer each and every fucking moment

tomorrow they will come up with a planet that is 1 LY away and so on .... chuckle

Oh, I see. You think I'm a government agent who's trying to hide the truth, so you automatically assume that whatever I debunk must be true.

Re: Scientists find 'habitable' Tau Ceti planet.
To get back on topic for a moment.... (With all respect for our esteemed Dr. Astro.)

IT being a habitable planet doesn't make it Nibiru. It SEEMS habitable just because it orbits at a specific distance, but that's no guarantee. It could be a small gas giant, or barren for any number of reasons. It's neat and maybe one day in the future we'll be able to send something there and see if it has life (Or is suitable for us colonizing it or something) but that is decades if not centuries away.

Absolutely right, plus it's in a solar system a dozen light years away, not in our solar system. It's the star that can be seen by naked eye, not the planet.

The closest is Alpha Centauri which is 4 light years away.

But that is a double or binary system.

it maybe less likely that those systems have life.


Other stars farther away are too weak, brown and red dwarfs.


But Tau Ceti and Epsilon Eridani are 10 or so light years away and they are systems very similar to ours.

The stars are about the same size and they are not binary.

Both of these close systems have Planets.

And now we know one of them has a planet in the habitable zone.

We dont know enough about Epsilon Eridani, but many suspect that it has habitable planets too.

Like Astromut said, the planet's not visible (No planet is, because they're too small and way too dim.) We find these by measuring the tug the planet has on it's star as it orbits. We're just getting better at this, and are launching satalites to measure more accurately how the stars are affected.
