Yes. However the chances that it will look exactly like human life are slim, but the chances of there being a planet with beings living there of human-level intellect are quite high. This is mainly because the Universe is so very big, and the basic molecules (e.g. amino acids) required for life have been discovered in many galaxies.

Life is probably quite abundant. However it is very difficult to check for life on distant planets; mostly because the planets are very far away and don't radiate much light. Most life searches therefore look for life indirectly by checking if a planet is close enough to a star to have liquid water, but not too close so it will evaporate immediately

They also look for traces of oxygen in the planet's atmosphere. This is because oxygen on its own will deplete quite quickly without a constant supply because oxygen reacts very efficiently with other chemicals. Therefore any planet having much oxygen has to have some kind of mechanism for producing it; like life. 99.9% of the Earth's oxygen is produced by life.

Is there a planet like earth in another galaxy?

yes there is 20 light years away. it is called Gliese 581g. this planet has land and water and it has the perfect things to create life. This planet is the perfect distance away from its sun for water in liquid form not too hot or cold. There are 7 planets in this solar system but gliese 581g is the only planet identical to ours found by scientists in 2007. This planet had 2 moons and an oxygen atmosphere for life to have evolved. this planet is in our home galaxy the milky way and is the second possible life formed planet besides our own Earth can we go there? N0,because no spacecraft could go there but maybe in the far future

How large can a terrestrial planet get?

Since we can't explore the galaxy, the sizes could be almost limitless. but I would doubt the planet could get bigger than the star it orbits which would be realistically impossible.

What happened to Earth in the TV show Firefly?

In the Firefly universe, details on why humans left "Earth-that-was" have been vague. What we could assume based on the series and from the film is that the planet could no longer sustain the growing population. So, they left Earth and repopulated themselves in multiples planets ("New Earths") in another part of the galaxy. In the film Serenity, the voiceover says they found a "new galaxy", but considering Earth's past is vague, the population could have relocated to another part of our galaxy.

What is the planet with the most creatures on it?

Earth is the only planet we know of that has living creatures inhabited on it, Although even with our greatest technology today we cannot see other galaxies. There are millions of stars in our galaxy that could have planets near by. With a heat source it would be possible for creatures to live on. There are many Galaxies and highly likely that there is another planet out there that has many creatures living as innocently as us beings on planet earth, although communication would be near to impossible.
