#EXOPOLITICS WHERE DO THEY COME FROM #PLANETS

And so the RELIGIONS wish you to believe YOU ARE ALONE... And yet, the EVIDENCE ...

"[Editor’s note: A while back, scientists announced that earth-like planets that could sustain life were far more common throughout the galaxy than we ever suspected. Today they tell us that there is one virtually right next door, orbiting the star closest to our own star system – a short hop in galactic terms. This newly discovered planet is called Proxima B and it is close enough that we could send a small unmanned craft to investigate. Exciting news for everyone who is interested in knowing if there is life out there. Perhaps more significantly, Proxima B could become the first stepping stone in man’s journey to explore the galaxy. Sadly, few of us alive today will get to find out what lies on Proxima B, if the current timescale for exploration is accurate. Ian]

Earth-like planet found orbiting closest star to sun



An international team of astronomers announced Wednesday they have discovered a rocky, Earth-like planet that might harbor life orbiting Proxima Centauri, the closest star to the sun.

The planet, designated Proxima b, is 4.22 light-years from Earth – essentially a celestial next-door-neighbor. At 40 trillion kilometers (25 trillion miles) away, it is easily the closest Earth clone ever found. If a small, unmanned spacecraft were launched in the next few years, it could reach Proxima b by 2100; children living in 2016 would be alive to see the craft’s arrival."
