re: So what is NASA announcing Wednesday? - Kentucker
Yes, very soon. With so many scientists now interested in finding ET life it may be just a matter of months. As Com. Data said, it's an exciting time to be alive....

re: So what is NASA announcing Wednesday? - Kentucker
Well, don't feel alone in being awed by space! It's far bigger than we can even imagine. That's why we use relative terms such as light years. While none of us can perceive 6 trillion miles, which is the distance light travels in a year, at least it's a basic measure of space on which we can build c...

[quote]Will we detect intelligent life in our lifetimes? I doubt it but I am holding out hope.[/quote] I'm a devout reductionist and I'm currently studying life from a biochemical standpoint. In this regard, life is an enabler of metabolism. A much more efficient enabler than nonliving processes,...

re: Off duty officer shooting - Kentucker
I saw that on the news last night. The cop handled it badly but his case against the teens is solid. Two of them were arrested for assault. He didn't intend harm by firing his weapon so I don't think he'll face any charges. He definitely was being set upon by the teens. ...

re: So what is NASA announcing Wednesday? - Kentucker
[quote]The only disappointment so far is that I saw last night where most of the planets are tidally locked. Still a huge discovery.[/quote] While tidal locking seems to be typical of planets that rotate close to their stars, it isn't yet conclusive that all of Trappist-1's worlds are locked. Of ...

re: So what is NASA announcing Wednesday? - Kentucker
[quote]This was a pretty big discovery in the amount of habitable planets or possible habitable planets. I suspect that there are innumerable amounts of similar systems throughout the galaxy.[/quote] I agree. It's another indication of how common earth-sized exoplanets are in the galaxy. The roug...

re: So what is NASA announcing Wednesday? - Kentucker
A nutshell synopsis of the discovery: 1. Seven earth-sized exoplanets have been found to be orbiting Trappist-1, a red dwarf star about 40 light years from earth, 2. Three of the exoplanets, T-1e, f and g are within the star's habitable zone, 3. All of the three exoplanets orbiting within t...

re: Why haven't Mizzou fans embraced the SEC like Texas A&M fans have? - Kentucker
I think most Mizzou fans are happy to be in the SEC, especially when the checks are issued. They're in a rich and stable conference where they're welcome to stay as long as they want and can leave when, and if, they want. I say if because I don't think the Big X is as attractive to them as it on...

re: So what is NASA announcing Wednesday? - Kentucker
[quote]So it is definitely about exoplanets beyond our solar system. I assume they have analyzed the atmosphere(s) and will announce earth like conditions but we'll see I guess.[/quote] If it is that the atmosphere of an exoplanet has been analyzed and, particularly, if oxygen has been detected i...

re: The main reason I love Trump more today than a few weeks ago - Kentucker
[quote] On the other hand, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton almost certainly provided them droves of classified information scott free.[/quote] That must be the reason Putin tried so hard to get her elected. It was Clinton, not Trump, that he wanted in the WH because of their close relationship...

[quote]We actually could probably do something about that. [/quote] Not yet. There just isn't any nation or group of nations that are committed to an expensive program of finding and monitoring asteroids and comets that could wipe us out. Oh, there are the amateur asteroid watchers and a half...
