Post #9 Alien planet looks 'just right' for life

Look.... there are billions and billions of galaxies out there.   Basically you can consider it an infinite number of galaxies available to research.  I'm sure everyone has heard about the recent findings.  What does this mean for the individuals who didn't believe in ET life?? IMO means that they were wrong.  "My own personal feeling is that the chances of life on this planet are 100 percent," Steven Vogt, an astrophysicist at the University of California at Santa Cruz, told reporters today. "I have almost no doubt about it."  Its like winning the lottery... only the odds are in your favor.

This galaxy is only 20 light years away.  Meaning, in space terms, its close... really close.  "The fact that we were able to detect this planet so quickly and so nearby tells us that planets like this must be really common," Vogt said.  The newfound planet, known as Gliese 581g, is estimated to be 3.1 to 4.3 times as massive as Earth, and makes a complete circuit around its sun in just under 37 days. If the planet has a rocky composition like Earth's, it would be 1.2 to 1.4 times as wide as our own planet, qualifying it as a "super-Earth."
 
Basically if a planet like this can be found so close to our own galaxy the chances of another one being out there are pretty much 100%.  Meaning that one of them "has to have life similar to our own".

 They wont look like humans.... maybe with 3-? eyes ... or walk on 3 legs.   Either way take that majority of religions (sorry).  What I mean, isn't hateful, but lots of religions think of humans as the "only life in the universe".....if this is true, its big... really BIG.

  1. Mystery and possibility present a lot of ideas to think about in terms of ETL and planets that can support life. Let us not for get about dimensions as well. Good post, keep it up.

  7. There is absolutely advanced life-forms other than humans, which are probably archaic in comparison!

  9. Yeah i heard about this. This forum i go to has a lot of UFO enthusiasts and they totally freaked out. Oh and this other site i like to go to has some end-of-the-world theorists who have been spamming that we're gonna be killed by some of those aliens in 2012.. stupid crap.
    And yeah, this really shows the religious folk. Believing that the universe was made just for us is just ignorant bullcrap

  12. what still blows my mind is that for 2 years, kids in school were taught there is only 8 planets. due to the whole 'declassification' of pluto as a planet. then theres also 'planet x' alot going on man.
