Earth 2.0 – What would they think of us?

We have found a planet like Earth.  Well, not us personally, but some geeky scientists that spend all day looking through ridiculously powerful telescopes.  There is an obvious question that pops into my mind, and probably yours too.  Is there life on it, this Earth 2.0?  Out there, billions of miles away, are there people like us?  One day, will we be able to go … Continue reading Earth 2.0 – What would they think of us?

Oh, it’s not that type of website.  Ok. Sometimes things wait patiently inside your head…..occasionally mustering enough energy to become a thought.  This is where my thoughts end up.
