Nice to see you BTW.


Thanx Mike. Nice to see you too :)
7) Message boards : SETI@home Science : Planet Hunters Report Record-Breaking Discovery, Search for other habitable planets (Message 1812256)
Posted 4 hours ago by Profile JulieProject Donor
The European Southern Observatory reveals that a rocky planet of about 1.3 Earth masses orbits the nearest star, Proxima Centauri. It appears that the planet orbits the star in about 11 days. Considering the small amount of light given off by this red dwarf star, this places the planet in the habitable zone, where water could be liquid at it surface, assuming it has an atmosphere.

So exciting!! Here's another article:

https://www.theguardian.com/science/2016/aug/24/earth-like-planet-found-orbiting-our-suns-nearest-star-raises-hopes-for-life-proxima-b

Belgian radio said the temperatures on the planet are the same as on earth, however, this is what I read in the article:

The research reveals that if the planet’s temperature were down to its sun alone, its surface would be, on average, a chilly -40C. “It seems cold, but then if you look at the same numbers for Earth you would get minus 20, minus 30C,” says Anglada-Escudé. “What keeps Earth warm is basically that it has an atmosphere and an ocean,” he adds, pointing out that should the newly discovered world also boast an atmosphere, its temperature would likewise be higher.


They don't know yet whether the planet harbors an atmosphere. It would be able to sustain life, if it did.

I have always assumed the brainiacs at Berkeley knew what they were doing when creating the software.

Alpha Centauri has several stars that are all near to us in cosmic terms.

18) Message boards : Science (non-SETI) : Plasma Bombs for the atmosphere (Message 1810989)
Posted 3 days ago by Profile JulieProject Donor
By releasing plasma bombs into the atmosphere, the Air Force would increase the quantity of ions in the layer of the atmosphere known as the ionosphere, which starts at an altitude of approximately 37 miles. Radio waves interact with this layer when they travel, so modifying it can have a significant effect on radio communications.


As a side effect, the Air Force also notes that this dense ion layer also will neutralize incoming solar storms, protecting sensitive networks such as GPS from disruption.


Looks like a big scientifical improvement to me!

it would be fascinating to be able to come back in a few million years and see how its orbit had developed.


Wouldn't it? Thanx for the interesting links, Lynn!

Thanx for the links. Let's hope the Zikavirus doesn't become a second Ebola virus and what it did to those countries in Africa.
