Stephen Hawking Says Earth Is Under Threat and Humans Need to Leave

  Stephen Hawking Says Earth Is Under Threat and Humans Need to Leave He said we need to leave within 500 years, "if humanity is to continue for another million years."“The Earth is under threat from so many areas that it is difficult for me to be positive. The threats are too big and too numerous,” he said, according to the Evening Express. “Our physical resources are being drained, at an alarming rate. We have given our planet the disastrous gift of climate change. Rising temperatures, reduction of the polar ice caps, deforestation, and decimation of animal species. We can be an ignorant, unthinking lot.

Yes , because it is more likely. Is there life on other planets . Chemical reactions in young planets create the building blocks of life . Present theories about life on Mars also suggest that if it exists it will be microbial in nature and most probably nano-bacterial or archaean.

There is nothing chemically rare about humans. There is nothing substantially unique to the physics of our planet . So life , elsewhere, is probably inevitable. With all that said, we might never discover those other lifeforms. Yes , there is almost certainly other life out there . But close enough to reach?

There are many more Earth-like planets beyond our solar system than scientists previously realized, and that increases our chances of finding alien life of some kind.

Data from the Kepler Space Telescope, which is on the hunt for exoplanets, suggests rocky ones are fairly common in the Milky Way galaxy, NASA’s Astrobiology Magazine reported. After searching through the Cygnus constellation for planets, Kepler came up with more than 4,000. And of that group, 50 are about the size of Earth and fall within their stars’ habitable zones.

Mysterious Planet 10 could be hiding out beyond Pluto

  Mysterious Planet 10 could be hiding out beyond Pluto <p>There are eight planets in our solar system, as far as we know. But there could be more. Astronomers have been exploring evidence of a possible Planet 9, but a new study suggests there could be yet another lurking at the distant reaches of the solar system, a potential Planet 10.</p>The study, due to be published in the Astronomical Journal, has a low-key title: "The curiously warped mean plane of the Kuiper belt." But it has big implications. The Kuiper Belt is a region of the solar system that extends beyond Neptune's orbit. It's full of icy celestial bodies, including dwarf planet Pluto.

If there is life on other planets , how did it originate? Well, I guess, yes : probably on Mars, there now will be bacteria brought to the planet from earth by one of the Mars-expeditions that were recently carried out.

Likelihood for Getting Smarter. 10 Life on Other Planets ? What if Mars disappoints us? Are there other candidates in the solar system? The answer is yes , and the next-best shot at finding Areas between the plates are filled with material that was probably icy slush contaminated with rocky debris.

A star’s habitable zone refers to the area where a planet would be orbiting far enough away from the star to avoid getting scorched but close enough that it doesn’t turn into a giant block of ice. Although there could be a currently unknown type of life that can survive on a planet outside the habitable zone, scientists focus on habitable zones based on what we know about the conditions necessary to support life.

The stars in Cygnus range from several light years away to thousands of light years away, so not all planets are within reach. And there is no guarantee any of them harbor extraterrestrial life. But the findings still offer hope that someone else is out there and suggest potentially habitable exoplanets are not as rare as experts once thought.

NASA to Anonymous: No, We Don’t Have Evidence of Aliens

  NASA to Anonymous: No, We Don’t Have Evidence of Aliens The hacking collective had claimed that NASA was on the verge of announcing that it had found alien life forms.At least not yet.

NASA’s space telescope has found tons of planets in other solar systems, including many in the habitable zones of their stars, so it’s looking good that there are aliens out there .

yup yes there is. There are probably other planets we aren't aware of 😐 Oooo 👻 Spooky. I really believe that there is life on other planets and I'm also open to looking into this possibility.

“Are we alone?” Kepler program scientist Mario Perez asked in the article. “Kepler says we are probably not alone.”

Finding out which exoplanets are likely to hold life will involve learning more about their atmospheres and water content — if they contain air or water at all.

Our current scientific understanding of how life survives and works tells us it needs liquid water — which would be found in the habitable zone — and a source of heat, as well as some sort of protection from space radiation. That could mean a comfortable bubble of atmosphere surrounding a planet, or it could mean life lives underground or underwater.

Whether an atmosphere exists on a rocky planet or not, underwater seems like a solid place to find aliens. A recent analysis of the masses and compositions of seemingly habitable exoplanets suggested the majority are likely covered in ocean — perhaps 90 percent coverage on their surfaces compared to Earth’s 70 percent. Earth has a lot of water but rocky masses we know as land can poke out onto the surface because of the topography of the planet: Some sections of Earth’s rock reaches up high while other sections dip low, creating deep caverns the water can fill. The same scenario may not exist elsewhere.

Uranus' Magnetosphere Opens And Closes Each Day, Study Finds

  Uranus' Magnetosphere Opens And Closes Each Day, Study Finds The planet lets in solar wind by acting like a light switch.In what could be described as its “on” position, the planet allows solar wind to flow into it. In its “off” position, the planet deflects solar wind by closing up. The process occurs each and every day, the scientists said. Earth’s magnetosphere, in contrast, typically only alters between open and closed in response to changes in solar wind.

The answer appears to be yes , if you consider that even Earth harbors extremophiles, or organisms that can survive in extremes of heat, cold, poisonous (to 2. Evidence of chemical precursors to life on other planets and moons Life on Earth probably evolved from chemical reactions that eventually

The answer is almost certainly yes . The Bible reveals there is not currently life on other planets . When you realize that there are probably billions of planets in our galaxy alone, that makes for a dizzying and thrilling vision!

“A delicate balance must be struck between the volume of water it retains over time, and how much space it has to store it in its oceanic basins,” the report said.

To further explore exoplanets and their properties, NASA is set to launch the James Webb Space Telescope next year. Some of those planets include the ones in the Trappist-1 system, which has at least three of its seven rocky planets in the star’s habitable zone.

We might not find anything.

“There’s a lot we don’t know,” Kepler research scientists Susan Thompson said in Astrobiology Magazine. “I like to remind people that it looks like there are three planets in our habitable zone — Venus, Earth and Mars — and I only want to live on one of them.”

But then again, we may find exactly what we are looking for.

Team that found Proxima b exoplanet looking for a neighbor .
Proxima Centauri b is the closest world beyond our solar system that we know of, but scientists are checking to see if it's alone.The discovery of Proxima b, a potentially habitable exoplanet around the closest star beyond the sun, was huge news last year. While the focus was on the confirmed existence of planet Proxima b, there were indications in the data that it might not be the only world orbiting the star Proxima Centauri, just over four light years away.
