Why do scientists think there might be life on earth like planets when aliens might survive hot temperatures with no water?

Good point. Great question. We just look for the most “likely” places life might develop. Interestingly, though, there are lifeforms like the ones you describe here on Planet Earth! You can find these lifeforms in Chile, specifically the Atacama desert. This place is burning hot and has had no significant rainfall in at least 250 years. According to express.co.uk “While...

Is it possible for a planet, such as Mars, to develop a liveable atmosphere on its own? What would it take?

It’s too late for that. Mars maybe did have a “livable” or as you might say “Earth-like” atmosphere one time, long ago. That time is past. It would never again happen without human assistance. It’s why we still search to see if any microbes or life of any kind ever existed there. So far, nothing.

How would we know if there’s intelligent life on the planet?

 This answer is re-quoted with my permission (from my own website). Take it as a rather interesting answer to your interesting question! Breaking news. Astrophysicists have discovered a new planet within the “Goldilocks” region orbiting a yellow dwarf star and believe it is teaming with life, thus putting to rest the age-old question: “Is there life on other...

If two ships are travelling side be side at some major fraction of the speed of light (e.g. 90%) and are, say, 100 yards apart, would they be able to see each other out the portholes?

Great question, and you see, that’s what we mean when we say everything is relative. Your “speed” is always relative to something else. If you don’t compare it to something else, you might as well be standing still. Relative to you, the other spaceship is standing still. You are both just floating there while Earth quickly moves...

Near-Earth Asteroid Flyby

Asteroid 2017 FE1 was first observed by Mt. Lemmon Survey on 2017-03-18 It will fly by Earth harmlessly on 2017-06-16 at 22:16 UTC at 39.9 times the distance to the Moon, at a speed (relative to the Earth) of 10.6 km/s. It is estimated to be 164 - 518 meters in size. #space#science#Astronomy#astrophysics#asteroids#NEO near Earth... Continue Reading →

Good News Bad News

All news is bad news. Bad news sells. Increasingly, however, there are human interest stories dubbed “happy news” at the end of news broadcasts, but it seems to diminish in the light of the chaos that I see going on the world. Cyber attacks, White House in turmoil, Trump increasingly isolated, Russia buzzing our planes... Continue Reading →

No Proof Life Exists Elsewhere

I know. It’s old news already. Everybody knows. Here’s the new take on it. Follow along. Imagine we want to go to some place that might have life. We don’t know if there’s life or not, but we want to go and find out. To quote the NASA website, designed to generate funding for NASA... Continue Reading →

The Earth is Flat

The Earth is flat, at least according to the Flat Earth Society. Although officially they have only about 500 members, the postings and YouTube videos have pulled in some secret admirers that believe. Because it's true. The Earth is flat. It's always been flat. The governments of the world, the astronauts who claim they went... Continue Reading →
