It's great that we are finding new planets out there,i'm sure there are loads & i reckon in about 4 months or so time 1 will be found that is like earth in every way.

The only way anything will move forward if the countries of the world stop fighting & put there minds together & come up with a way to get to these planets.

sadly i fear this will never happen.

Imagine if the best minds in the world worked together,so much could be achieved

I happen to think its all fake. UFO's, Planets, Pluto, Uranus. Its hilarious to them most likely. Us humans would have no idea, as we cant get into space. That's why i dislike these type of stories, because i know its just the media trying to hype the "life outside earth" theory.

There could be diddly squat out there, and we are just experiments apart of a grand conspiracy, trapped in a highly sophisticated controlled environment, monitored by Elites.........it sure would create a lot of job openings


You do realise you can buy a good telescope right?

We have no idea if these planets supports life at all. All they know is that it could maybe support life based on the distance from their Sun.
The goldilocks zone is nothing more than bull anyways and for all we know life could exist well outside those zones.
Mars for example is said to be just outside the zone, but yet they now think it was habitable in past and was much more like earth with oceans on surface. Yet now it is a more or less dead and dry desert planet...
Then you also have the moons of jupiter and saturn where several have been found to posses LIQUID WATER oceans underneath the ice, which could very well for all we know harbour life.

Things like atmospheric composition, orbital configurations, magnetic field and so on matters a lot as well.
Currently we don't have the technology to look at a expolanets atmosphere or magnetic field.

Well as for sending a radio signal its too late as they sent one last year from Australia, and its only 22 light years away hmmm, what about the new alien invasion detection Dishes they are building around 3000 of them and will be ready in 9 years, and will detect airport like radar from 50 light years away that puts this planet well in the detection zone.

If I were a betting man I would have wagered my house and all my belongings on the strong theory that our solar system is teaming with life, even strange lifeforms on this planet that we do not recognise. SETI picked the wrong approach me thinks.


Here is an idea, which will get you LOTS of scorn from the mainstream scientific community: Go to some major observatory and DEMAND they focus there telescopes on the moon. Tell them to look closely at all the strange lights and artificially formed craters.

Why do we have ZERO close-up views of our own moon? ZERO close-ups of mars? ZERO close-ups of saturn?

Alone in the universe?


I once sent NASA an email telling them how perposterously assinine that theory was, but I was trying my hardest not to be rude about it......just playing the odds game....like betting in a casino or horse track.

Lets see here: how many planets per star system? how many stars per galaxy? how many galaxies per universe? how many universes per multiverse? who or what created the multiverse?

I don't care if you are an atheist, religious fanatic, or just plain braindead. Our ancient forefathers. like the mayans and aztecs, probably knew much more then what we know now. The problem is a 2,500 year old civilization(OURS) is on the brink of extinction because instead of space exploration we are killing ourselves with wars, nuclear disasters and oil spills.

It is all obnoxiously disgusting!

As you should be, because most likely.........they aren't finding ANYTHING. New planet this, new planet that, million planets here, billion planets there, blah blah blah.

All a hoax. Take us out of the damn fishbowl already.


Whats the hoax? The fact that astronomers are finding new things every day is pretty awesome. We will never now everything.

Nothing against you or your thread. It's just I want to see...
"New Planet with Intelligent Alien Life Forms" as a headline.
Until then, S&F



Intelligent Life you say? I am not sure if they have found Intelligent Life on Earth yet..
Ihave to agree with you about this. It is old news that planet out there may be capable of supporting life. We all know that by now. I guess it was a slow news day and they did not have a cat walking across a beam this time to fill the gap.

Here the info on the signal that was sent is it the same Gliese?

NASA transmitted a radio signal to Gliese 581d At midday on Friday 28 August 2009

TPTB are building a monster radio telescope for detect an alien invasion.

That's because NASA already knows there is life out there and they think that we have to be controlled and lied too about it or we'll go crazy and kill ourselves. Now I'm sure there are some that are so conceded that they believe there can be no other life outside of this world. I think for most of us though, we would be like well its about time you admitted it! Now get some photos on the internet so we know who we're dealing with!
I for one would welcome the FACT of knowing about life outside the planet. I'm assuming there is already.

However on the other side of the coin, they mention alien invasion, NOT VISITATION... so am I to assume it would be a "take over the earth" scenario? Do they think the aliens that they know about are aggressive? Interesting...

I think there are about 200-400 billion stars in a galaxy or our galaxy and about 200 billion galaxies(that we know of). Only one universe though as far as I know. I thought the multiverse was just speculation?

Of course I am no scientist. The above is just what i seem to remember reading on my StumbleUpons.

I completely forgot what this thread was about now

It's great to wonder about habitable planets in our galaxy but think of the money spent on these studies.

Just to try to find a place that we don't have the ability to get to anyway.

How many hungry people here on our own planet could be fed with that money?

We bloody well better start taking proper care of the planet we have and need in order to survive.

Human priorities are so messed up.

A feeling? Is that a joke?

It's based in evidence. There's so much already. We've barely scratched the suface, yet there's plenty of things to dig up. The universe is huge, according to what we calculate and observe. It's just as ridiculous to think the earth is alone in its ability to harbor life as it's to think that you'll win the lottery. It's not a feeling, it's cold hard facts and logic and deduction.

We can think this:
1) Chances to produce life are so low that life is only on earth in the whole universe
2) Chances are that life is on a some planets in our universe
3) Life is on every planet, every asteroid, every moon, even in the clouds of gas/material!

What does 'some' mean?

We can calculate how many planets there're. We KNOW there're hundreds of billions, if not more. If you include moons and comets, the number is astronomical. Even a low chance is good.

The size of the universe is so amazing. Our quest to find life has not begun.

The only RELIABLE analysis of life we've compiled is ON EARTH. And from the data we have, life is almost everywhere. We've only sampled ONE other planet (Mars). And even that experiment has controversy. And it was only ONE test/sample. We have a long long long long ways to go.

Thousands, Millions, Billions, Trillions, Quadrillions, Quintillions, Sextillions, etc...

Just one immense cluster in the universe has 40 quadrillion times more mass than our sun.

We estimate there're sextillions of stars in the observable universe. How many planets and comets and asteroids and moons and clouds of interstellar gas are there? Care to ask?

Just think. Even if ONLY earth has life, there's a good chance that some of that life was expelled in a asteroid collision and there's a lone bit of rock somewhere in interstellar space with our fingerprint on it. I wonder how many fossilized life-forms are out there in space, drifting silently and alone?

So...

'Some' is more than one. This is about the origins of life. Did life originate on our planet, off planet, or is it a mix? I don't know what the actual probability of life is, but with all of the things in our universe, even a small probability results in lots of samples. And when you consider that nothing is a closed system (black holes emit something too), there's a good chance that even if there's a low probability for life, the life that does get created will spread around (as fossils, or as living seeds).

It's not correct, from a statistics standpoint, to go with (1) or (3).

Neither is it logical to buy a lottery ticket and think you'll win, but millions do every day.

we have been killing each other for thousands of years with most people none the wiser.

such people do not belong in nasa or any other major scientific organisation. too closed minded=boring and ineffective!

yeah mabye it would be nice to know human souls are being farmed from the moon and/or hollow earth. what is there to be excited about? on the other hand maybe we would stop killing each other and polluting earth. maybe we could fight the actual aggressors and regardless if we win or lose at least we will not have the burden of cowardice.

what do you think is the purpose of masonry? why do you think no government admits to ufos&aliens? why are all governments slaves to the ultra-wealthy and in turn enslave everyone else? the evil must extend a loooonnnng way my friend.
aaaaahhhhhheeemmmm(wow lots of sneezing)
