A question asked by our species for generations, dating back to ancient times is that does life exist elsewhere in the universe? This question is perspective though-do we believe that humans are unique when there are hundreds of billions of galaxies which contain trillions of stars and solar systems within the known universe?
But on the other side, if life does exist outside of ours, why haven’t we discovered it – or they discovered us – yet?
This is known as the Fermi Paradox, and there might be a solution to it sooner than you may think.
Nasa is to host a major press conference on a “discovery beyond our solar system”
The answer could lie with exoplanets. Exoplanets are planets that orbit stars other than the sun and have been heavily studied by scientists recently. In fact, NASA will be hosting a major press conference concerning exoplanets February 22nd.
Maybe it is about how they believe exoplanets hold the key to finding other life in the universe.
Maybe it is about something completely different, and more exciting. We will see.
However, one of the fascinating candidates for extraterrestrial life is an exoplanet known as Kepler-62e.
Kepler-62e is known as a super-earth. It is roughly 60 percent larger than that of Earth and is thought to be covered with ocean. It was discovered as 1,200 light years away from Earth and is one of the most likely candidates for other life. The thing is, hundreds of planets like this exist and more are being discovered all the time, so another life has to exist right? The only thing we can do is to look to the future for answers. A good place to start would be NASA’s press conference which could shed further light on this topic.
