would it be possible to have two earth-like planets, twins, orbiting each other
and their star, sharing a single atmosphere (perhaps shaped like a fat 8 ?) in a
stable manner ? would it be possible to aerodynamicly fly from one to the other

if earth-like twins are impossible, what about twins like other types of planets
that got gaseous atmosphere?
