Do you think there is life on any of the planets in Trappist-1?
3 of the planets reside in the "habitual" zone , where temps are optimal for water, oceans, etc.
Does it really matter to us? It is more of a question of is it habitable by us. And then that becomes a moot point because we have trouble getting a hi speed rail service in CA, and getting a base on the Moon. Getting to Mars and establishing a base there would take a lifetime. Base it on how long it takes to get anything built here on Earth.
Sorry to be a downer on this question. del if u think I failed to answer your question.
Ha, certainly won't delete, think its a great response. I do think its important however, as the question of whether or not life exists elsewhere in the universe has been debated since the dawn of man.
Jeff, I agree and so has the debate about God as well. It does seem wasteful to have a whole solar system and only one life bearing planet. At least as life as we know it, or want to know it.
eggzachery my fren, and so here we are, is this as big as a ufo landing on copacabana (if it hasnt already), that remains to be seen, but, nonetheless, finally, now we have some interesting planets that may actually have life (an new strains of ganja
There very well could be and that's pretty cool!
I would be thrilled if we found life on other planets in my lifetime. I think we're still very off from making any contact/being able to visit but it sure opens up a world of possibilities (pun intended). I don't think it has to be a matter of "we can get there right now" for it to be a really interesting discovery. Science is amazing!
I think that extraterrestrial life is a much less common occurrence than most of us has been led to believe. We cannot presume the existence of life on these exoplanets merely because these planets are found with the approximate mass of the earth and is found in what would be the 'temperate zone' relative to the faint star that they orbit. There are thousands of variables and I believe relative to that, a duplicate Earth and its biosphere if found would be rarefied if not non-existent.
I dunno broski, the people who study the universe seem pretty excited, will be fun to see what science can provide over the next several years for sure -- J
Jeff, I Don't know if the excitement is misplaced. We got Venus, a sister planet in mass, and not far from the 'temperate zone'. But, there are not many places in the Solar System that is more uninhabitable.

Do you believe that there is life on other planets besides Earth and what makes you think so.There are so many schools of thought (religious and secular) about life on earth and other planets. Are we alone in the universe or did life sprang into being elsewhere? Did God only have enough time for...

He could have done it in four or five days if He didn't insist on making most heavenly objects thirteen billion light years distant. Just showing off?

Many scientists believe their is life on other planets. Not on Mars or Venus but in the next Solar System. What do you think and should NASA take this issue seriously?

What is the likleyhood that we are not alone in the universeWhen you look out at the night sky and all the stars is it just possible that there is life out there? Or are we alone?

Why do you believe in extra terrestrial life?I'm looking for your reasons. What evidence can you provide?
