Re: Gliese g

Trillions of stars and just now we are finding out that there are other planets like earth out there! NASA has found more of this kinds of planets than it lets the public know.
Our solar system is undergoing major changes due to higher solar activity.
Mars ice poles are almost gone and Venus, for example, is showing
increases in its overall brightness. Jupiter has such a high energetic charge that there is actually a visible tube of ionizing radiation that's formed between its moon,
Io. You can actually see the luminous energy tube in
photographs that have been taken more recently..
I could go on and on ..... In short yes there are many other earth like planets out there.
By the way when i read your thread i thought you where talking about a new breakfast plate at Dennis. The "Goldilocks plate found". LOL

It wasn't found by NASA, it was found by researchers at the Carnegie Institution of Science. Also, Gliese is only the 11th star we've scoured hard for planets, and this planet is the 5th discovered around that star. There appear to be 4 or 5 other hopeful planets out there also, but this is the first that got the global research community thinking they'd found a planet that could not only very likely harbor life, but could have life on it now. Futher, the other possibles are orbiting around far larger stars than Gliese, which is a red dwarf and pretty small. It's very tricky to look at a small star 20 light years away, and by measuring the small variances in its orbit determine acurately that there are 5 or more plants orbiting it.

Interesting, not relevant, but still interesting

It took me a second as well to get the 'not too hot, not too cold, just right!' angle as well

Re: Gliese g

I'm not surprised that it wasn't found by NASA...on October 1st they laid off more than 1000 workers from the program. Thanks for the link though.

Re: Gliese g

Yep, the first wave of what will be about 9000 layoffs as the shuttle program winds down.
