Newly Discovered Planet With More Water Than Earth!


Dakota Slim

Recommended Posts

Scientists have accidentally discovered details about a "very exciting" planet orbiting a nearby star system, which is thought to contain more water than Earth.

The scientific interest in the planet, known as Nu2 Lupi d, was sparked after researchers spotted it using the European Space Agency's Cheops satellite.

It orbits a sun-like star around 50 light years away from us that is visible with the naked eye, has a mild atmospheric temperature and appears to contain a large amount of water.

But, according to some of our "experts", it would be impossible for life to be on it. :old:

Wouldn't it be a hoot if aliens were just billionaires from another planet?

I think the consensus among all the experts is that life does exist out there somewhere. It just about has to. It would be ridiculous to think life is unique to our planet given the vastness of space and all the possibilities out there.

Believing UFOs come from outer space is quite different than believing there is life out there on a distant planet. 

Wouldn't you agree Slim?

Not at all Bob. If the planet of origin is unknown it would be ridiculous to rule it out.

If we see lights we don't understand in our refrigerator we generally dont believe it originated in the oven. 

Likewise when we see lights we don't understand on earth we are fairly safe in the assumption that it did not originate on another planet.

We don't really know if the strange things we see in the refrigerator originated in the oven. But experience tells us that the most likely explanation lies in the refrigerator. The same goes for things we don't understand on earth. 

No one has indicated that life on other planets is impossible or even unlikely. Quite the opposite. We have all agreed that is not only likely but is almost certain. They have only expressed their doubt in the popular beliefs that the UFO phenomenon is the result of Gods, witchcraft, aliens or demons. 

Believing that things we don't understand on this planet come from another planet is a huge stretch. There are many things that we don't understand and cannot explain. Yes, they all could be from another planet. Or the oven. We just don't know. But imagining they are from another planet (or the oven) is just that... Imagination. 

Unexplained phenomenon? Well, it is all pure conjecture. There is no evidence at all to indicate what these phenomenon are or where they originate. All we can do is imagine.

Some like to imagine they are demons. Some think it is witchcraft. Some think they are God's. Still others believe they are space aliens. This is all just beliefs that are filling up space where knowledge is lacking. 

Visitors from another galaxy? Maybe. But until there is one shred of evidence that this is the explanation we are just playing with our imagination. 

As far as life on other planets is concerned I have never heard anyone here say it would be impossible. Neither have you. That is simply a false statement designed to misrepresent what was actually said.

The only point of contention has been that the unexplained phenomenon comes from intelligent visitors from another planet. That is a belief that you are certainly free to entertain if you would like to. But until there is one shred of evidence to back that up I simply prefer to accept the fact that we really have no idea what or who is responsible, and that little green men from Mars are one of the least likely explanations.

OK, I’ll pull up a chair and throw another log into the fire. 

Given that the US seems to be the only country releasing videos of those ‘UFO’s’, it’s logical that it may be us showing off to the other guys while keeping it secure. Why else would someone be flying them over the ocean with so much Naval security ‘escorts’ nearby?  Remember when the US finally publicly announced the stealth fighters and bombers?  People had reported seeing them flying over various testing ranges before that and there was a lot of speculation as to what they were, and they wanted to start flying them in daytime and had to release the news about their existence.  Making them appear as mystery sightings may be another way of announcing it as a warning to other countries without divulging too much about them.

I think we are most probably alone as for a living planet within the Solar System, still hoping that Curiosity or Endeavour find some evidence of fossilized life forms. But as for the whole Universe?  Definitely there is life. What and where?  Can’t answer that one. But statistically, it is pretty much a given that it has independently started in a lot of places out there.

It seems a much more likely explanation than flying spaghetti monsters from Alpha Centauri. 

But that is just my opinion. It certainly could be an invasion of aliens.

Maybe we should build a ceiling to keep them out?

Instead of an expensive ceiling, if we just keep acting the way we’ve been acting, they’ll probably want to stay away.:D

Absolutely not. We need a ceiling. It is a matter of national security. Alpha Centauri is not sending their best aliens. Some could be criminals or have diseases. Others may be good life forms.

We just don't know.

You guys that don't support the ceiling just want to give extraterrestrials free housing and benefits. You support open skies and the destruction of our great planet by these invaders.

You just want to destroy what our brave men and women in uniform fought and died for.

A ceiling? That's pretty funny Bob. This photo should put things into the proper perspective for you.
Like the caption says, the red dot is our Milky Way which includes 200 to 400 B as in billion stars, one of which is our sun...

I have seen two different strange lights(not in the sky) that I did not understand(at first)...

Fireflies  and the other was glowworms.  Never seen ET.

Slim, if you would stop your ridiculous sniping at me I would stop making you look like a fool.

Why can't you just drop it? You are doing nothing except trolling for trouble. Leave me alone and we will get along fine!

Excusez-moi? I started a thread about a stunning new planet discovery and you start talking about some imaginary ceiling and want to dwell on it. You sir are the troll.

Or will just one for the southern skies suffice? 

That would act as a floor -not a  ceiling. How long have you been under gravity's influence?

Another goldilocks zone planet would be cool. But if it was rich in skittles, and they brought lots of skittles back, the skittles market could crash.

Evidently longer than you have.

One man's ceiling is another aliens floor. I guess it all depends on what planet you are from huh?

I think we need to see your proof of terrestriality. You talk like an illegal alien.

With all that water, one would think there is a variety of life on this planet. Obviously, there are minerals. It's only 50 light years away. How long do you suppose it will take for someone on Earth to plan a manned trip there to explore Nu 2 Lupi di? What will the space vehicle look like? How will it be powered? How long will the trip take?
Now that space travel seems to be the in thing, there should be plenty of volunteers for the journey.:wee:

Let's plan a trip today Slim!

I would take a 69 Ford Galaxy powered by a 351 Cleveland. Maybe supercharge that rascal. Lower it in the back until it threw sparks once in a while. Feed it blue thunder, methanol and human blood. 

It won't take long to get there at 165 mph. Heck, Dallas is only 6 hours away at that speed. I figure the road to that rock won't have many cops so we can let her unwind once we get past the rings around Uranus.

With a name like "Nu 2 Lupi d" nobody is going to build an offramp to get there. Better bring that big roadmap of the universe. We might have to take a farm road once we pass the andromeda galaxy. 

I have a cooler of beer, a hand full of good Dominican cigars and a half ounce of yesca. We can take some sandwich material and hit a taco truck once in a while if we need to.

Let's pull out as soon as I get the carbs jetted for altitude!

Come on Slim. A road trip might get you to relax a little. You seem like you are spun up pretty tight these days.

You need to get out of the trailer park more often buddy. There are universes out there to explore!

Did someone mention ridiculous ridiculous sniping?
