A new Earth: 10 NASA images of planets like Earth
It's exciting to think that there might be other lifeforms like us out there. It gets you wondering if they are more or less advanced then us or if they made similar mistakes to us. They probably would have a lot to teach us about the universe, they might even know of other planets with life out there!
atom or cosmos, human or slug, whatever.. the experience is much the same for all, god or no god..
FROM DUST THY CAME AND UNTO DUST THY WILL RETURN AND SO WITH EVERYTHING CREATED. THERE IS NOT ANY ONE PROOF UP TO NOW THAT THERE ONE THING THAT HAVE OVERCOME THE END OF TIME IS THERE?
i belive that every 1 billion years the human race changes we will go somehow and life begins again ha ha this the truth wheather you accept it or not liki the stars that come and go and so with other created things everything got its end and again evolve this is how the universe is made
if there are any highly developed civilizations outside the planet Earth,why so far, and despite the technology invested, not even a single radio communication,or any similar type of intelligent communication, like television,telephony, television etc.was found?!
It would be difficult to try to communicate with people using different receivers than our planet. If there is life out there they may be at a further stage in their evolution, or not even at our stage. They too may not yet have solved inter world/ solar system/galaxy travel. There is enough evidence on this earth to back up the idea that we have been visited in the not too distant past by other intelligentces, far superior to our own.
Brilliant. This IS the way of the universe, and of our own planet.
Life forms and happens in measurable cycles. And so it does also on a gigantic scale.
In about 6 billion years, our sun will engulf Earth and incinerate every living thing. Let us hope that by then colonies of humans will be well established on other earth-like planets and the death of billions of people will be prevented. Now, let’s get cracking on some transport vehicles that can carry hundreds or thousands of people to these new homes.
Let's see. Nearest planet within the habitable zone found so far 20 light years away. Traveling at a 100 million miles per hour (167 thousand times faster than your Delta Airlines flight) it would take 134 years for you to get there. And then we send billions of people on this journey? Great idea.
Ha... It does make you question the intellectual depth of some of the minds on this planet. When doing so I am usually disappointed .
The real issue is not the earth being swallowed up by the sun. In less than 100million years the sun will have warmed our planet up so much we will truly be a twin of Venus. Its called the "Runaway Greenhouse Effect" and is a very real issue... I love science.
Multi-cellular life is expected to go extinct in "just" 800 million years: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_the_far_future#Future_of_the_Ea...
It's statistically improbable that the human species can last 6 billion years without wiping itself out.
I have to say, I was disappointed with this article. The title promises "10 NASA images of planets like Earth" What it contains is 1 image of a planet like Earth (Kepler-22), and 9 images of planets distinctly UN-like earth.
Some day I think we will cure illness and old age. At that time, we will have to explore. We are already overpopulating the planet. Imagined if no one died.
I don't believe its about exploitation on everyone's part. For me its about exploration and discovery. Possibly contacting or discovering other life forms and learning more about our universe. I don't think that necessarily translates for everyone to exploiting those discoveries. I find the exploration of space fascinating!
If we are really that bad it strikes me that other more intelligent and more evolved beings might be waiting to ZAP us should we try to leave our solar system! After all, they probably practise VERMIN CONTROL as we do!!!
It's true, our universe is not eternal... but I'm not worried. While death and the decay of our universe is the direct result of sin. Jesus Christ, creator of all things, became a part of his creation and took our penalty on the cross which was a satisfactory payment accepted by God the father. If you receive Christ as your Savior, you will enjoy the new heaven and new earth which God will create where there will be no sin, no death or decay. No need to go to any other planet!
