Hubble Finds Carbon Dioxide on an Extrasolar Planet


Hubble Finds Carbon Dioxide on an Extrasolar Planet Ray Villard Space Telescope Science Institute, Baltimore, Md. NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has discovered carbon dioxide in the atmosphere of a planet orbiting another star. This breakthrough is an important step toward finding chemical biotracers of extraterrestrial life. The Jupiter-sized planet, called HD 189733b, is too hot for life. But the Hubble observations are a proof-of-concept demonstration that the basic chemistry for life can be measured on planets orbiting other stars. Organic compounds also can be a

New dark energy findings suggest Einstein’s theory is dead-on


New dark energy findings suggest Einstein’s theory is dead-on Trendwatch By Rick C.

Hawking Predicts Discovery of Alien Life


Hawking Predicts Discovery of Alien Life: But Asks, Will It be Carbon Based? December 15, 2008 On the 50th anniversary of NASA, Stephen Hawking, Newton’s heir as the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, answered the question, “Are we alone?” His answer was short and simple; probably not! Hawking presented three options. One, being that there is no life out there, and two – somewhat pessimistically, but subsequently, a little too realistic – being that when intelligent life gets smart enough to
