Researchers at the Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence Research Center were talking while looking at the wide screen showing numerous stars as dots, floating rocky planets and gaseous clusters.

“This one is located twenty light years away. The planet should be habitable with the right gravity and pressure as is revolves around its star very comfortably in the goldilocks zone”

“Does it have water?”

“It did long time ago, may be a million years. Look at the lines over there. Water had been flowing in there once.”

“I see. Could it have supported life? Like aliens?”

“Definitely. If there was water, there should have been life. Million years ago, but not now”

“Why?”

“Not sure. Maybe a meteor in the past millennia.”

“If it was a meteor, there should have been a crater on the surface. Nothing like that shows up in the picture.”

“Maybe the aliens must had exhausted all the water and oxygen and made the planet a raging hurricane of useless gases and acid rains.”

“I see. Let us send a probe and do some basic research on the surface. What are the coordinates for the planet?”

“Galaxy is Milky Way, located very close to Zodiac Star Cluster and is the third planet to its star.”

“Done. Give it a name now”

“Earth. It shall be called Earth.”
