if we point at number one we might get a signal !!????

Its a good one John,
So next thing you know, there will be Real Estate company's selling plots of land on these planets. It will be a land-grab, first come first served!

I want a little Island on one of those planets and i'm calling it "Johnneyland" :)

John.

I'll call mine johnland, so we will have to pick different planets so visitors don't get confused ;)

Here's a list that seems to be all the identified exoplanets, so far. http://exoplanets.org/table/
By clicking on the large "+" in the upper right corner, you can add additional columns such as the RA and DEC. I think it's interesting that some of the Jupiter-sized planets have orbital periods that may put them in the habitable zone. While the planet itself might not harbor life, it may have moons that could...
Hopefully, the ATA can be targeted at these soon...

it will still take you to the same site as the first post ,but it's a bit
easier.

We only have 5 billion years to find a way to get to these other worlds. The sheer distance alpha proximy 4.5 light years. At current capibility about 60,000 miles per hour about 5-6 miles a second. At that rate to get to the nearest star wouls take about 73,ooo years one way!.... and nothing detectible there.
Why would they bother with a populated world when they could get to others. We are so far from other stars, its a curse and a blessing. We miss the chaos of closer together stars. I can only wonder if they have a way to travel enormously large distances in a life time.

Yeah good one i have copied their link and will have a proper go at it tomorrow.
they were asking us to look for planets using keplar data , but tonight all i can see is stars. 8)

thanks again steve.

HELP SEARCH FOR PLANETS.

http://www.planethunters.org/

You never know, you might find the next planet.

(i thought at first it was going to be a bit like seti but its not)
but it is still interesting and engaging all the same.

have a go !!!!

The Habitable Exoplanets Catalogue is about to be doubled in size !!

One of the links on the page takes you to the
University of Vienna's EXOLIFE page.

Well done on colour John, how about personalising it as well?

wow i love this site.

WE NEED to scan those potential planets 24 hrs/day !!!
and WE NEED all our computers working on that 24 hrs/day !

and WE NEED to compute tons of other tests made to those !

WE NEED to put all our EARS (radiotelescopes), all our EYES (giant telescopes in all spectrums), all our BRAINS (all our PCs/MACs mega brains) on that ! on those exoplanets !
it s the most important thing !

Chris S, on the EXOLIFE post above I was trying to post
one of their diagrammes but failed.

A pity really as crayon is such a wonderful medium,
and so underused on scientific/university websites.

A bit of thread trawling later (and thanks once again to Vic)
and hey presto another work of art shared with the masses. ;)


I shouldn't really laugh as it shows the
UNIVERSITY of VIENNA is not an ageist organisation,and
allows 8 year old children to assist with their webpage design
(although it is obvious that a grown up has taken over and
drawn the arrows and done a bit of typing etc,)

To offer a good read on the various senerios of Earth-like
planets, in the "goldilocks" zone of their respective stars:
"What if the Earth had two Moons?", by Nicholas Carr.

Who knows, what will turn up, in our life-times, but the law of
averages might favor one of those mentioned. . .

"Habitable" needs to be more fully defined and quantified. It cannot be based on one or two parameters. In the near future we should be able to more thoroughly search and measure neighboring star systems.

perhaps we should create a family of EXO 's if they do not already exist.

exo-biologists
exo-physicists
exo-chemists
exo-geologists
exo-microbiologists

Hello DADIO

I'm pretty sure there are already Exobiologists,(mostly dealing with microbiology
so that would cover the Exomicrobiologists bit.
The Exochemists could probably fall into the category of the experiments which
already take place in space ( On the space station ).
The only one I think doesn't fall into a category already existing is Exophysics.
At this moment we think our understanding of physics covers the entire universe,
including black holes or multiverses.
In reality nobody has been through a black hole and returned to see if the Theory
of relativity does hold up , or if there are other universes,so could theoretical
physicists be classed as Exophisicists (trying to understand how things work and if
they are any different from our perception here on earth),or because their theories
are based on earthbound observations would they not be classed as Exophisicists.
