Title: Interesting...3 "super Earths" Have Been Located
Post by: YoungCaliman on April 19, 2013, 01:50 am
Apparently NASA has found 3 planets that are slightly larger than Earth, yet are at a distance to a start similar to us, which means it is capable of supporting liquid water, thus it has great potential for supporting life as well. I thought this was interesting. They're saying they are making great progress with this discovery and this could lead to the very first "alien Earth" ever clearly identified.

Well if they ever discover it is habitable. I want to know if and when they want volunteers to go, I would love to leave this world to live on another :)

I wonder if we'll rename those if we find life, just to be respectful.

This is awesome, I would also like to live in a different planet like Cortez said. And I want desperately to be alive when at the very least we get pictures of alien life elsewhere.

That's an interesting phenomena, it reminds me of a book I read called Abduction by Robin Cook. If you're into this sort of thing, I highly recommend it. Thanks for sharing.
