Skip to comments.Can We Find A Living Planet by 2020?
Posted on 12/22/2009 5:07:46 PM PST by KevinDavis
There was a lot of excitement last week about the discovery of a waterworld planet called GJ 1214b, as reported on Discovery News by my colleague Ian ONeill.
This world belongs to an emerging class of planets dubbed super-Earths. It is 6.5 times Earths mass and nearly three times our diameter. Its mass, diameter and density suggest the planet is largely a ball of water with and icy/rocky core.

A ball of water with an icy/rocky core? Not likely. Ice floats. I don’t think that law of physics is going to change anywhere.
I doubt it. Life as we know it is extremely rare.
ANother immutable law of the universe is that AgencyPersons will try to grow their bureaucracy with any and all excuses.
One can only hope that none of the nice AgencyPersons at the South Florida Water Management hear of this “newly discovered water resource”.
Count on them wanting to increase taxes sufficient to permit importation of that water to meet the water crisis they claim FloriDUH suffers from.
Let's hope we find it before it finds us...
“I doubt it. Life as we know it is extremely rare.”
Found any yet?
Out of 52,000,000,000,000 known galazies each with 300,000,000,000,000 stars... yep I could see how life would be rare...
So let’s see the number od stars is 300*52=15,600 followed by 24 zeros.
Yep very long odds.
LOL! Maybe that idiot Bill Nelson (the other idiot Dem Nelson) will demand NASA spend $900 billion to send a ship to outer space to get water to refill Lake Ockeechobee after SFWM drains the lake again.
On the DISCOVERY link, the statement was made that they are trying to find exo-planets from which UFOs and Aliens might be coming.
On his TV program, “It’s Supernatural” this past Sunday, Sid Roth, a Messianic Jew, had Chuck Missler as his guest. Chuck has held very important positions in the U.S. Missile programs, etc., and he has a totally different take on where the UFOs and Aliens might be coming from. He also has statements from several form NASA Astronauts who saw and reported UFOs while on space missions.
For anyone interested in learning his slant on it, here is a link to Sid’s website and the Missler video.
If the above link should not work, if you copy and paste it into your browser it will work fine. When you get to Sid’s website, the Missler video will be right there, and a choice to open it with REAL Player or Windows Media Player.
You mean a rock with life on it?
Can spectronomy find out whether there is life on a world? Can we “see” what color a distant world is?
I have lots of questions
What if the lifeforms resembled human first trimester fetuses? Could we go in Avatar like and wipe them out with a good conscience?
Will Earth be a living planet in 2020?
Because they are intelligent, they choose not to visit Earth!
I hope so. A waterworld 6x larger than earth sounds a lot better than the MarxistWorld 0bama is leaving our children and grandchildren.
It's what we know and what we observe.
Liberals would leave the way, trailing cheetohs behind them
Lake Okeechobee may drain its self,if the Army Corps and Water Mis-Management doesn’t either stop keeping the water level above the designed maximum and/or repair the levee.
Typical results of a large agency.
Cosbee said it best “How long can you tread water?”
"That's no moon. It's a space station." ;)
