Found! 3 Super-Earth Planets That Could Support Alien Life
The habitable zone of a nearby star is filled to the brim with planets that could support alien life, scientists announced today (June 25).
An international team of scientists found a record-breaking three potentially habitable planets around the star Gliese 667C, a star 22 light-years from Earth that is orbited by at least six planets, and possibly as many as seven, researchers said. The three planet contenders for alien life are in the star’s “habitable zone” — the temperature region around the star where liquid water could exist. Gliese 667C is part of a three-star system, so the planets could see three suns in their daytime skies.
Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.
Sigourney Weaver had initially been very hesitant to reprise her role as Ripley, and had rejected numerous offers from Fox Studios to do any sequels, fearing that her character would be poorly written, and a sub-par sequel could hurt the legacy of Alien.
If you insert very, very optimistic numbers into the equation (not considering “Goldilocks” theory etc.), you’d obtain 5 (five) communicating civilization in the Milky Way (all Civs. outside the Galaxy are simply out of reach because of distance and speed of light). Which means, probability to have two existing civilization at the same time, are very very low.
The key is SPACE-TIME SPAN. Universe seems to have designed to KEEP CIVILIZATIONS REMOTE one to another.
