I'm bored with the space exploration sector's marketing being based on "finding
life somewhere else". Can we start launching solar power satellites
worlds without end...
We live on a comparatively small planet that is rotating around a medium sized
sun at about 900 mph (19 miles/second) in a solar system with 9 planets.The sun and all the stars we see are moving millions of miles a day in an
outer spiral shaped arm of a comparatively small galaxy we call the Milky Way.
Our tiny galaxy contains about 100 billion stars and it is about 100,000 light
years (1 light year is the distance light can travel in one year at 186,000
miles/second) from side to side. Our milky way galaxy has a bulge in the middle
about 16,000 light years thick but at our end of the galaxy it is about 3,000
light years wide and we are about 30,000 light years away from its center.Our galaxy moves in a circular arch and completes a rotation every 200 billion
years. Our galaxy itself is only one of millions of billions of other galaxies
in this universe that some scientists believe is still expanding!
And this is new because?????? To think we are the only intelligent life in the
universe shows how arrogant earthlings truly are. Science is exactly what it is.
Most science is theory and can't be proven anyway. Because we have traveled to
the moon, sent probes to other planets from our solar system does not make us
all knowing. Well in our "little" universe I guess it does, right???
life can flourish in the most inhospitable places "life" does not only mean
bi-pedal hominid, it may be a one celled organism and it would still constitute
"life". So lets not pretend that we are SOoo special type attitude and
say "there may be no others."
Yeah, there are other planets. I'm not surprised. But it takes more
than a planet to make life... as we understand it... possible.Earth
is tilted just so. We're the right distance from our sun to keep it from cooking
off the atmosphere. The atmosphere makes water possible. Our moon is
a perfect counterbalance to the gravity generated by our superhot core. There's at 8 planets in our solar system. But only one is really well
set up for life.Is there life outside our solar system? Who knows
for sure? But just playing the odds, I suspect there is.
Why is there a theory of life on other planets? Must be a surprise to those that
think humans are the center of the universe.
Foolish human, magic can never defeat science!
So 32 planets appear out of nowhere?So much for science having all the
answers in and about the universe.And religion continues to be the source
of all information to those who want to know more about God and worlds without
end.You can almost hear him chuckling when science discovers something
else new, then pat each other on the back declaring how smart they all are.
And Mr. Roddenberry told us where they are, right?
So did the Egyptians. A long time ago.
Is right! There are other planets out there. But we didn't need to
have astronomers tell us. Gene Roddenberry already did.
