I wrote what I found via tweets and mailing lists that I follow. I do not understand how you can call me ignorant, fool, lacking common sense?
In my humble opinion, ESO has made an astounding discovery. To all who think Astronomers were not looking at Alfa Centaurs for planets all these
years...ha ha! They were, but could not. ESO used the HARP measurements to find a planet around same mass as Earth. Further to that, SETI had scanned
that part of sky for signals, and they will scan these parts again, now because of this discovery.
(In the 1990s, astronomers listened to the Alpha Centauri system for alien radio broadcasts but heard nothing, said Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at
the SETI Institute in California. Any aliens on the new planet “would have to be devilish and enjoy hot weather,” he said, adding that the SETI
(Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) project will probably take another listen across a broader range of radio channels in case other, more
habitable planets also lurk in the system.)
I got excited when Felix made the space jump. People across the world were excited. But then there were some, for whome it did not matter. Everyone is
entitled to drink their tea the way they seem fit!
I got excited about this ESO news confrence and I am glad I did a thread here. I see so many like minded members on ATS who have shown a passion and
enthusiasm for science that we seldom see in day to day life.
I did not post this thread to get stars or flags, I posted because I wanted to share the news I was getting. Isn't that what we should be doing in
ATS, share the news? I believe some people here are plain jealous that a new member like me, who had about 22-23 posts on ATS could bring on board ATS
a story that would be of interest not just here, but would also compel disclose.tv, UFO&NEWS (on twitter) to copy it from here!
Call me names, call me ignorant, a person with little to no common sense, call me what you may, I shall keep posting things that sound interesting to
me, those things that have not yet been posted, that piece of information that has been leaked, albeit a media embargo! I will because I know now that
there are so many here on ATS who want to pursue the truth, like I do. And also because I know who I am, your or any other person calling me names
shall not change that fact.
Well, now that the cats out of the hat from ESO, I will be on to another story! Ciao.
