WoD – We are not alone…

Three days ago, a NASA project just identified a planet out there that is super close to Earth in orbit and density and temperature, etc.  Here is an article on it:


The planet (Kepler-22b) is 600 light years away.  Neat!  But first, how the hell does anyone know it is about 72 degrees there?  I mean, really.  We can’t even predict the weather here one DAY in advance!  And second, how do we know what the heck it might look like?  (But it does look kinda dreamy, doesn’t it…?)

I wrote a WoD called Life, the Universe, and Everything a little while ago, after a discovery of some potential bacteria on a meteor – a sign of otherworldly life out there that was deemed “controversial.” (https://yiddishwod.wordpress.com/2011/04/06/wod-life-the-universe-and-everything/).  I am even more convinced now that one day humanity will look back at the idea that we are the only planet that supports life in the whole universe as very naive and self-centered.  Maybe out there it is like the Chalmun’s Cantina Bar in Star Wars after all… (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAGfC0Ktb5Q
