Astronomers have a new theory that defies a fundamental necessity of life

Posted by in category: alien life

So-called land planets may be habitable. Here’s why that matters.


Scientists propose so-called land planets have a better chance at sustaining alien life than Earth-like water worlds.

Organic Molecules Have Been Confirmed in The Jezero Crater on Mars

Posted by in category: alien life

It hasn’t even been on Mars a full year, and NASA’s Perseverance rover is making excellent surprise discoveries.

Amid a number of findings announced this week at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting, scientists have revealed that the Jezero Crater formed from molten volcanic magma – and that organic molecules have been discovered in rocks and dust on the crater floor.

$10 Billion Webb Space Telescope Launch Delayed — Here’s What We Know

Posted by in categories: alien life, chemistry

The James Webb Space Telescope is the largest, most powerful, and most technologically challenging space telescope ever built.

The Webb Telescope is so large; it must be folded like origami to fit inside its rocket fairing for the ride into space. Once in space, unfolding and readying Webb for science is a complex process that will take about six months.

Webb is designed to see the most distant galaxies in the Universe and study how galaxies evolved over cosmic time. Webb will study planets orbiting other stars looking for the chemical signatures of the building blocks of life. Webb will also study planets within our own solar system.

We’ve Found A Unique Giant ‘Tatooine’ Planet That Orbits Two Stars Say Scientists

Posted by in category: alien life

Astronomers just found something unique in the Milky Way–a giant exoplanet in a 200-days orbit around two stars.

In a find that remind us of that binary sunset in the original Star Wars movie, the Tatooine-like “TIC 172900988b” is a Jupiter-sized planet.

Known as a “circumbinary” planet, TIC 172900988b’s existence has been revealed in a paper published in the Astronomical Journal by a team led by Veselin B. Kostov of the SETI Institute.

We Asked a NASA Expert: How Did Perseverance Mars Rover Pick Its Landing Spot? [Video]

Posted by in category: alien life

Mars rover pick its exact landing spot? Believe it or not, the Mars rover decided precisely where to land just moments before it touched down. It’s thanks to the work of engineers like NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Swati Mohan and new technology called Terrain Relative Navigation.

When NASA decides to send a rover to Mars, a whole group of experts gets together to figure out where it needs to go for the best science for that mission. Perseverance’s mission was to find the signs of past life on Mars. So, all the experts got together and picked Jezero crater.

The Science of Aliens, Part 7: How Would WE React to Discovering Alien Life

Posted by in categories: alien life, science

What the discovery of alien life means for our human society. For more info, see.


Ready or not, this discovery is likely to happen soon. In anticipation of discovering alien life, conferences have been held on what such a discovery would mean for humanity. But how would we as humans react to this discovery? That reaction would depend on how advanced the alien life is and whether it would be considered a danger to us. Let´s start with the possibility that we find microbial life on another planet. In a seminal paper published in Frontiers of Psychology, a team of scientists led by Jung Kwon from Arizona State University reported that people would react more positively than negatively to discovering alien life. They partially based their findings on how people reacted to the announcement of fossil life in the Martian meteorite ALH84001, which created excitement in the scientific community (the discovery itself, however, has remained controversial till today and it is unclear whether it is evidence for the existence of past life on Mars).
