      Yes and No.

      There are thousands of other planets that we have found. And we suspect that every single star out there has at least a couple of planets orbiting around it. We’ve even found planets that are about the same size as earth and made of the same kind of stuff.

      However we have not found another planet exactly like Earth. Our’s is the only one like it. Maybe there are others out there but we may never know, the universe is a huge place.

      There’s only one earth and while we are in a unique position in our solar system the balance of probability suggests there will be other planets out there that can support life in some form
