Hi guys! exciting news, probably the most important discovery of the year

Astronomers from the European Southern Observatory have found the second potentially habitable exoplanet closest to Earth, located at only 11 light years away. I made an analysis on it: youtu.be...

As if this were not enough, on May 2017, astronomers from the SETI Institute detected unusual radio signals coming from Ross 128

What do you think? Do you think that the exoplanet Ross 128 b hosts intelligent life? If so, why?

Lots of factors to consider.

The planet has enough mass to hold a atmosphere but does it have an ionosphere.

It orbits the sun once every 9.9 days might make for some crazy tides.

Is it tidaly locked with the sun so one side is hot the other frozen.

Not much uv light and lots of red light so plants would have to adapt to that.

But all in all it appears to be a pretty mellow place.

Best candidate yet in my opinion.
