Planetary Discoveries
--The New York Times in the journal of Science of 11 July 2003: Nicknamed 'Metuselah'-planet, the newly discovered planet is "almost three times as old as Earth", in the constellation of Scorpius, 5.600 lightyears away, with a mass of 2 or 3 times Jupiter.

--A Tiamat Discovered? A Second Home? A New Earth at 90 lightyears, announced by the British Astronomer Hugh Jones of the Liverpool John Moores University in 2003.
the Discovery of a Solar System similar to ours in the constellation of Puppis at 90 lightyears. "There in what is the CLOSEST resemblance to Earth's Solar System yet found! in outer space, a Jupiter-like planet with a mass of 2 or 3 times that of Jupiter circles a sun-like star HD 70642 in an orbit (of 6 years) that corresponds to one halfway between Mars and Jupiter in our own system. So the possibility of a second Earth in there remains. The Discovery was based on measurements by the Hubble Space Telescope!"

-The case of the 'Earthlike' Planet, the New York Times 25 januari 2006: 'Search Finds Far-Off Planet Akin to Earth'.
British Scientific Journal Nature issue of 26 January 2006 in which 73 astronomers of the US, UK and Australia disclosed the tracking since July 11, 2005- of an Earthlike Planet orbiting a distant Red Dwarf every 10 years [in the constellation of Sagittarius] at 21.000 lightyears, dubbed OGLE-2005-BLG-390Lb, is smaller than Neptune, has a temperature of - 220 gr. Celsius, with a mass of 5.5 times that of Earth! This is the most and smallest 'Earthlike' planet yet found by Astronomers, in a cosmic eye blink it was the blip in the night that we have been waiting for, Jean-Philippe Beaulieu of Astrophysics in Paris said. We have glimpsed it , but don't know if we will ever glimpse it again?
28 January 2006, Maggie Mc Kee, Magazine Issue 2536.

Red dwarfs are about one fifht as massive as our sun and up to 50 times fainter, and they are much cooler. But they are among the most common stars in the Universe.
So UfodeWaarheid.com assumes that there are many 'Earthlike' Planets in our Milky Way, our Galaxy and Universe. Scientists report already since 2005 that about half of our yet discovered star systems might harbour 'Earthlike' planets in the 'Goldilock' or 'Earthlike' zones, not too hot and not too cold, to contain water.
