Our Solar System Has A Twin


Our Solar System Has A Twin

Scientists have found in the vastness of the universe is absolutely identical to our solar system. Despite the fact that the analogue of our system is somewhat larger in size, their similarity is simply amazing. The star found is the same in composition and temperature with the sun.

In other words, the distant world was very similar to ours in its structure. From which German scientists have concluded: perhaps the planetary system GJ676A was formed in the image and likeness of the Solar. Moreover, it is possible that most other planetary systems in the Universe are formed that way.

And this greatly increases the chances that someday there will be a system with life. The GJ676A system differs from the Solar only in that its planets are larger. Local Earth, for example, is four times heavier than ours. A local Jupiter – five times more.

Whether in the world, so similar to ours, the twin of the Earth, is not yet known. But the probability of finding it is very high. It may even happen that this twin will be habitable.

In the tacit competition “Who is more like the Sun”, the star HIP 56948 outperformed the former leader 18 Scorpio (18 Scorpii), which turned out to be 54 degrees hotter. It also found much more lithium and iron than the sun.

Scientists, however, claim that the twin of the Sun is about a billion years younger. And this raises doubts: did life have enough time to develop in the system of this star? Or is it very primitive on the local Earth?
