size of the star and the heat it generates based on the star's brightness plus the distance of the planet from the star should give them and idea of the planets climate...

I am sure there are other factors as well

Well no one will ever be able to travel the speed of light so I doubt we will ever have to worry about this other "earth".

well if we could go half the speed of light it would take 40 years...you could live out your life of the ship, have kids and before you know it we have people there...

or we could send a rover there now to take pictures so we can see if there is life there

You'd think that if there are aliens out there they'd have the technology to travel from planet to planet easily.

What kind of affects would there be on the body if you went the speed of light? Wouldn't you be dead?

nope...if it takes 20 years to get there going the speed of light then it would take 40 years to get there going half the speed...simple math
