NASA discovers a Habitable Planet
 
http://news.yahoo.com/nasa-telescope...162005358.html

Awesome! This probably means there's just possibly life out there.

Now all we need is FTL travel and artificial gravity.

Dread Advocate 12-05-2011 11:50 PM

That neutrino discovery a few weeks (maybe months) ago may be the first step to FTL travel.

Lynk Former 12-06-2011 02:56 AM

Before all of that... where is my replacement for the Space Shuttle and my Moon Base? It'll take steps to get to FTL and Offworld colonisation and we're not getting very far with those :carms:

Your moon base was called the Alan Parsons Project right? Giant Lazor?

Note that it's a planet in the habitable zone of its star and not necessarily a habitable planet. Still, very cool.

Imagine the horror if NASA lands there and the first thing they hear is "Yousa humans? MEESA PLEASED TO MEET YOUSA! OIOIOI!"

I bet Obama would send a nuke.

Ugh, you Dutch with your Heineken. It's probably the reason we still haven't found any signs of life on Mars. :p

OT: I guess we've heard this kind of news a few times already, but it still is exciting! Cool-cool-cool!

LordOfTheFish 12-07-2011 02:04 PM

Very cool news, but we still have to make it past 2012.

Ok, if you believe the world will end then is it ok to ban you as of Dec 22, 2012? :p

I'd be shocked if we were the only planet to have life in the galaxy.

I seriously doubt the world is going to end in a year. Now, not that I want to start a debate on it here as this isn't the place, but keep in mind that if you believe in the Bible, lots of things still need to happen before the world ends and I doubt it could all happen in a year. Again, I don't want to debate that here, just letting you know if you believe in the Bible, read Revelation. That's all I wanted to say on it.

The only way I'm not going to be here in 2013 is if something happens to me personally.

Heck I'll take a ship like Serenity. Might take a bit, but I'll get there.

Sorry, I need a Star Destroyer.

Instead of a new thread I'll just post here since it's relevant.

How does this affect me in any way? Sure it's cool, but I feel like money, time, and great minds are being wasted here.

Just watch out for any nuclear detonations that blow the moon out of orbit and you'll be fine. :p

Oh I agree with you 100%. I was joking. :thmbup1:

Sorry if that was unclear.

How did we ever enjoy forums before Youtube? ;)

Back in those days we used the good ol' pictographical insert tags, dagnabbit.

That is what led to the invention of animated GIFs.

I must admit, on more than one occasion I completely forgot what I was going to post by getting mesmerized by Lynk's avatar. Seriously, it's hypnotic.

On Topic:
I guess we need to find some more Reliant Robins.
