I’m really getting sick of people claiming “Earth Like Planets” – when they are nothing like that claim.

“Exactly like Earth – oh, except in a couple of relevant ways”

Scientists have found the first planet beyond the solar system which is the same size, and has the same proportions of iron and rock, as Earth

  1. Which is just as wrong. Earth-Like, to me, means similar size, similar distance from the sun, similar composition – you know, class-M.

  2. “vaguely” Earth-Like. Yeah, by that same criteria, it makes an elephant or a chihuahua as “vaguely” human.

  3. I have no issue with planets like Mars or Venus being claimed ‘earth like’ – it’s when they present is a planet that’s three times the size of earth, with a surface of molten lead, and claim its earth like, that I scoff.
