Star System Soaked With 'Rain'


www.space.com

NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has revealed a dusty star system being soaked with a "steamy rain" of water vapor.

The water, pulled from gassy stellar leftovers into a dusty disk, provides what astronomers think is the first direct look at how the life-giving liquid makes its way into planets. The disk is the same sort of thing that forms around many stars and, in the case of our sun, was the seedbed for planet formation.

Oh wow! This is quite amazing! It's like there's everything in space, only separated into large clouds of the same thing. An alcohol cloud, a sugar cloud, a poly-aromatic-hydrocarbon cloud that probably isn't THAT aromatic and now finally REAL clouds, real as in how clouds on Earth are, not clouds of ice.

Yes it is amazing, ties in rather nicely with the old sci fi concepts of exotic life forms in an atmosphere, as well as the "vacuum" of space. Imagine a collective life form distributed in one of these clouds,. Space may really be one big alphabet soup.

My Opinion

I agree the cosmos is probably just one big soup of lifeforms.

Water has been proven to exist elsewhere so it's probable carbon, oxygen

breathing lifeforms do exist elsewhere.

Not to mention we cant discount speculation of lifeforms that are not dependent

on oxygen and water etc.

Whatever the case may be whether there are lots of intelligent life out there, or

were the only intelligent species

fascinating.

It's raining in one part of the universe, and there's a hole in another part 800 billion light years across.

doubtless somewhere there are a gazillion monkeys with typewriters banging out Shakespeare.
