We are not alone.....


A new planet resembling Earth has finally been found. Here's the report from yesterday in 'The Sun'......


"A PLANET resembling Earth has finally been found — and conditions there are ideal for LIFE. Astronomers say water could exist on the surface of the world and temperatures are between zero and 40°C. It is one and a half times the size of our own planet and the discovery team say conditions are perfect for Earthlings. It is 14 times closer to its star Gliese 581 than we are to the sun, but its star is much cooler. A European team used a giant telescope on a mountain top at La Silla, Chile, to spot the planet — which is 20.5 light-years away in the constellation of Libra. Scientist Xavier Delfosse said: “This planet will most probably be a very important target of the future space missions dedicated to the search for extra-terrestrial life. “On the treasure map of the universe, one is tempted to mark this planet with an X.”


Can you picture this new planet? I wonder if it's as beautiful as our own Blue Planet - Mother Earth, the wonderful Gaia? Personally I think it is impossible that there isn't at least one more planet out there in the Universe that supports life such as ours. Could this be it? Maybe one day we will contact our neighbours. Maybe one day..............



On a different note...
Our local newspaper has informed us that our local police station is now contactable by email! Presumably because the place is never open when you want it.
I am sorely tempted to email "Is there anybody there?" Testing, testing.....

haha you should so do it. Send an email do the man to get him down instead of letting the man get us down for a change!

Just kidding, just kidding.

Well, Hugh Grant throws baked beans at reporters, so Akelamalu, I am definitely going to report you for throwing Spam at the police.

Linda said...

I feel we would be selfish to think we are the only intelligent life in the universe.

Akelamalu said...

Linda
Quite right!

Annelisa said...

Wonderful knowledge, isn't it, that there actually is a planet a bit like ours out there, as opposed to 'there's a high probability'!

Go on - email the station - dare you! :-D
