What A Colony On Our New Earth Could Look Like

Posted by on October 1st, 2010


Those rascally scamps at io9 have issued this artists rendering of what a colony on the newly discovered Earth-like planet could look like. Since one side of the planet is constantly exposed to the sun and the other is frozen like year-old leftovers from Chilis, only the border areas between the two would be hospitable for life.

Meanwhile, there seems to be a dispute about the name. io9 has been calling it Gloaming and the UC Santa Cruz team that discovered it has dubbed it Zarmina. Meanwhile… some people who deliberately called dibs on the planet when it was announced Tuesday are wondering why their chosen name of Bonearth is not being recognized.
