    Default A second earth

    Here's one, do you think it's possible that there is a second earth with the same orbit as this one? As long as it travels the same speed as this one and stays at the oppisite end of the orbit it could be possible.

    A second Earth orbiting our star in this solar system? What?

    Okay, Omnipotent Chaos. Be vague then cop out when someone asks you to explain what you're on about.

    I think I understand. He's saying that there is another planet Earth, on our Earth's orbit, but on the exact opposite side of us, so that the Sun would always be blocking it.

    Being that I'm training to become a Doctor, I've never had the opportunity to study Space in dept. So I have no idea how plausible that is. I'm sure there is someway to tell what is on the other side of the Sun. But if not, then I guess their could be another Earth.

    But I really have no clue, I was just posting to clarify the OP.

    Tht's impossible though since space probes would've seen it, and also, two planets can not be on the same orbital plain, it's so very highly unlikely.

    If it were true it would have been discovered due to variances in the orbits of Mars and Venus caused by its gravitational pull.

    Orbiting another star, maybe.

    Orbiting our star, no. We have too many space probes. They would have seen it. But it does present an interesting plotline for a sci-fi novel.

    Yeah.

    Second Earth, by Joe Random.

    For thousands of years, humanity has looked to the stars for any signs of intelligent life like our own. They have peered into the dark beyond through telescopes, scanned the vastness of space for radio signals, sent out unmanned probes and even put men on the surface of the Moon, all in an effort to answer that age old question: Are we alone? But what Mankind doesn't realise is that intelligent life most certainly exists - and that it IS in our own neighbourhood and not beyond it! On an identical orbit as our own planet but orbiting on the opposite side of the Sun, is another Earth, inhabited by humans just like us! But these humans are jealous, jealous of our lovely little planet rich with it's natural resources since the Second Earth humans have almost depleted their supplies of fossil fuels! : O And they have a plan, a nasty, devastating plan to invade our Earth to steal it's resources! Can they be stopped before it's too late?!

    It sounds similar to what the aliens did in Independence Day.

    Better plotline would be that they are an exact replica of our planet, except that they have figured out that money is only as worth as much as people think it does.

    It would be cool if we could drag a similar planet into a proper orbit and mold it into an inhabitable state, that'd be really awesome.

    Without buggering up the carefully laid out orbits of every other planet? That'd be quite the achievement.

    Going back to the original topic, it's impossible to not see the second Earth because the Earth orbits elliptically with the Sun as one of its foci. This means the Sun cannot be constantly between the two planets.

    Carefully laid out? No being positioned these planets to revolve around the Sun the way they do now. Man may have calculated the orbit of the planets in our Solar System, however, gravitional power moves of its own accord.

    Well I highly doubt that because if so the planet couldn't be that simular.It's kinda hard for me to explain right now.

    Considering there's only 92 elements, there's already billions of planets, and the universe is constantly expanding, having a planet of similar nature to ours is not unrealistic. It being in the same solar system is next to impossible, especially on the same orbit (which in itself is a load of bullshit), but the idea itself isn't that far fetched.

    I chose my wording badly when I said "laid out", and I apologise. What I meant by it is that the currently observed orbital paths would not be seen if there was a second planet on our orbit.

    However, there is no reason why it couldn't happen, although, as Nocturne says, it's virtually impossible as the two planets would have to have the same mass, move at the same speed and be on the same path.
