new planet
« on: April 28, 2007, 01:00:51 AM »

In school i heard a few different teachers briefly talk about the new plane tthat's similar to earth, but its somethign like 20000 light years away.  So i googled it today and read a little bit about it.  Was wondering if anyone else thought we might actual get people there around 100 years from now.

Models predict planet should be either rocky or covered with oceans

so they only ruled out gas?

No they couldn't, The ship would need refueling (assuming it uses fuel not solar power or and other kinds), And of course we would have to travel at the speed of light to get there in 100 years if its 100 light years away, and of course we can't even come close to that so it would have to be a huge ship with generations of people :o

in other words you would be fucked if you decided to go and you would never see the planet your great grandchildren would probably

That's another news story about it. Us travelling to it would require new propulsion methods.

Unless we develop faster than light travel utilizing either time travel or bending space, no, we couldn't get there in 100 years.

"The planet orbits the faint star Gliese 581, which is 20.5 light-years away in the constellation Libra. " its not 100 light years away but that is still a lot

And still impossible to reach in a life time via the transportation we have.
