22 light years, means it would take 22 years to get there, right? or 22 years traveling at the speed of light?



traveling 22 years at the speed of light
would take us much longer to get there

Its 22 years if you were a lightbulb. Meaning a dog has 6-7 life years per human year. A lightbulb has about 15 or so. So just consider yourself an LED bulb and it would take about 22.

Capiche?

Hmmm...

Red star...

about 4 times the size of Earth, meaning higher gravity...

Krypton?

capable of supporting life as we know it.

Earthlings tend to be quite egocentric. Who's to day that only environments similar or somewhat close to our own are capable of life? They may very well be other climates where there is life, even intelligent life, that could no way in hell survive in a climate such as ours. They may see earth from millions of miles away and assume they same thing we do about them -- "no way can that place support life (it's to hot, too cold, they don't have any ______)"

To your friends on earth. But to you in the spaceship traveling at the speed of light, no...it's almost instantaneous.

it isn't like other galaxies have different ingredients to start life. we know under what conditions life can be sustainable

I remember a few short years ago when we didn't even have proof of other planets...

Seriously, it has to do with time dilation (theory of relativity).
