LOL if you can stand pulling 5 gs for the rest of ya life :P.....damn imagine being a fighter pilot on that planet

Maybe we can strap some huge nukes to one end of it and slow it down a bit

wheres raid, maybe he can build some huge anti gravity reactor that makes the entire planet effortless to walk on

Lets hope we find another planet thats got a similar gravitational force as our own. That would be sweet.

the planet is 5x more massive

gravity is a mere 1.6 times that of earth

"The new planet is about five times heavier than Earth, and gravity there would be 1.6 times as strong as Earth's. Its discoverers aren't certain if it is rocky like Earth or if its a frozen ice ball with liquid water on the surface. If it is rocky like Earth, which is what the prevailing theory proposes, it has a diameter about 11/2 times bigger than our planet. If it is an iceball, as Mayor suggests, it would be even bigger."

ahhhhh okay.....even sweeter....hell im out of here as well....sorry my sources were bad

In that case, heres to humanity becoming more peaceful and banding together a bit to launch a mission to it in the next century.

"We have estimated that the mean temperature of this super-Earth lies between 0 and 40 degrees Celsius, and water would thus be liquid," explains Stéphane Udry, from the Geneva Observatory (Switzerland) and lead-author of the paper reporting the result. "Moreover, its radius should be only 1.5 times the Earth's radius, and models predict that the planet should be either rocky - like our Earth - or fully covered with oceans," he adds.

Iceball?

Itll probably be upgraded or earth downgraded, after weve finished with this planet in 70 years

Hell, Shell and BP dont have to worry about running out of oil now. They can just reallocate thier industry to another planet.

I think that we had better check our info. first.

The planet is 50% bigger than the Earth, and is orbitting a red dwarf. It has a temperature that would allow water to exist in liquid form, which is believed to be THE key ingredient to support life as we know it. The researchers did not say anything else about the conditions on the planet, and they did not say that there is any water there.

It means 40 years traveling at half the speed of light (which is quite possible apparently), and im sure time dilation would come in somewhere making the whole journey feel a lot shorter i might be wrong.

Then when we factor into to account work being done on teleporting (it has been done on an atomic level), and talk of an attempt to teleport an organism.....it doesn't seem to implausible. Far off maybe.

I heard all factions must buy all their weapons from Bill Gates' new Gearsoft Corp. which in turn probably means that your weapons are limited to 5 magazines each after which you have to buy a new weapon... also if you transfer to another unit your gun must be validated which costs $$$ and if you don't... between every round you fire, the weapon will launch a hologram infomercial about the positive sides of validating your gun while making subtle accusations of you being a thief... all the while your enemy is shooting at you with his black market Apple Launcher.

Guys, your missing something very important here, red sun, huge gravity, close to Earth but not to close...

We've already met someone from that planet, it's this guy!

Well I figured he was confused of Krypton on account of the location of his UNDERPANTS. I didn't realise he was cruisin' the galaxy looking for love though.

Q: What's the only obvious difference between human beings and other animals?


A: We can figure out a way to leave this planet.

All joking aside, human beings "evolutionary usefullness" is to take life to other planets. Now, this particular planet may not have an atmosphere fit to live in, but there may be more, now that it's proven that small stars can have planets similar to Earth.

The big thing is that this discovery is starting to confirm some of the more recent theories in planetology, which is that habitable type planets and associated living organisms may not be as rare as previously thought.

We COULD send a mission to a planet like this, but with current technology the cost to send a viable mission would be mind boggling, since the mass required to sustain even a moderately sized crew for a decades long trip is on the order of a large asteroid. That in turn requires one hell of a lot of thrust to get that mass up to signifigant velocity. Then double the requirements, since you have to figure in a potential return trip if the target planet turns out to be unihabitable.

We have the technical know how, and we have plent of theoretical propulsion technologies that we could build, but it all comes down to will, and thats something we lack almost completely.

The big issues are time/lifespan, mass, and velocity. If you can make any signifigant improvement to any of those areas, interstellar travel becomes a heck of a lot more viable.

If and when they get any of those issues addressed to where they are economically viable, you can expect to see one heck of an exodus off this mudball. I will be in line for the first ticket if I am still kicking. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Maybe we could hollow out an asteroid and use that. One less to hit the earth. Or we could store all our nuclear waste on the moon and then let it go critical, and Bob's Your Uncle.

Also you'd need a lot of fuel to slow down, unless you want to use some gravitational well like in Star Trek, but you might end up accidentally going back in time to kill whales.
