New Planet Is Earth's Twin 200 Light Years Away The planet, known as KOI-314c, is the same weight as Earth, but much larger and has a surface temperature of 104C. Scientists have stumbled upon a planet considered Earth's 'twin' in another solar system 200 light years away. Known as KOI-314c, the planet is the same weight as Earth, but is 60% larger. The planet is also much hotter than Earth, with scientists estimating its surface temperatures to be around 104C - unsupportive of most life forms on Earth. KOI-314c is suspected to have a thick gaseous atmosphere, making the planet only 30% denser
