Scientists have identified a planet which they say is a Super-Earth. They revealed that the planet is the best place to look for signs of life outside of the Solar System. The early indication reveal that it has an atmosphere and that it sits within the Goldilocks Zone where it is neither too hot nor too cold for liquid water to exist.

The planet is only 40 light years from Earth implying that it could be possible to send a signal. The lead author Jason Dittmann of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics said that its the most exciting exoplanet he has seen in the past decade.

Dittmann revealed that the planet is the best target to perform one of the biggest quests in science – searching for evidence of life beyond Earth. The discovery was made by an international team of scientists who have been studying data from European Space Observatory’s High Accuracy Radial Velocity Planet Searcher instrument. The instrument looks for regular changes in brightness of stars, which suggests a planet is passing by in orbit.


>send a signal

Please don't.


Earth isn't a ball in space.



What is it?



sexy single human populated planet looking 4 big strong invaders asl have resources and water



I feel like with all the signals and shit we've done before, if some other civilization had this level of technology, they'd already be aware of us.


>40 light years

so if we could send a radio signal to them that travels with light speed (which is not even possible), it would take 40 years until our signals arrive to their planet.

And then another 40 years to receive their "fuck off niggers" message


Super earth makes this earth seem un-super– fuck those cultural marxists trying to divide the earths against one another.

We've really not sent it out THAT much.

Only in the last 200 years have we actually started even transmitting, and if anything had picked it up, it would literally have to be next door, and we should hear back in the next 100 years.

That being said, The government "the world government" does a lot of shady shit we don't even know about, maybe we have already have had a reply, but it's kept secret.

If anything, i'd be interested in what aliens want to say to us.

More of the same i guess, "We are Zipnoids, and we like big bazongnoid's on our Flibbernobs, Please buy out Super Space Pop Music"



>send nudes




Reply: "Nice Triple Dubs"



>only 40 light years from Earth

>only 40 light years

>40 light years

Yeah, it'll only take FORTY FUCKING YEARS traveling AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT to get there and the same time for them to get our fucking signal and twice that to get a reply back, assuming they decide to reply right away, which they won't.


wow another super earth. how many times have we heard this?





no one will hear us and we won't hear anyone back. the signals we send lose energy and degenerate into nothing more than background noise after about 2 years. SETI is worse than a waste of money, it's probably cover for something else (money laundering etc)


Idc what they say to us, I just want a plumbus.. Take my Earth currency!!



>/b/ takes over SETI

>Suddenly the entire SETI budget is dedicated to sending dick pics, gore, and Goatse to other planets.

its flat



I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of sending aliens dank memes and shitposting all over their image boards.

We choose to go do these things, not because they are easy, but because they are lulzy as fuck.

if they understand us they're probably sad

imagine if they're evolution was the same as us and they're basically human too

and then you get an alien signal from a distant planet and you're excited you'll see some alternative life form and a balding nasa guy comes on screen super excited hes found alien life and we're the same



>If we could only send a light signal to them that travels at the speed of light (which is not even possible for light)

omfg you sound dumb.

radio waves are the same thing as light waves, aka EM radiation. radio waves are just light waves which are oscillating a little bit too slowly to see.




Humans have achieved only 2% of the speed of light relative to earth

lets see.. 40 years x factor of 50…

2000 year one way trip with out current tech




What's the fastest thing we sent to space? The Voyagers? Voyager's paths were designed to get maximum data on planets, not to speed away from the solar system. Using the same tech, you could probably add another %.

And probably way More with a constantly accelerating craft, which would require a nuclear reactor that could run autonomously for hundreds of years. If the goal was set right now and we went all in, we could have a probe there by 2517.

Then we'd crash the probe into their warlord at 0.15c, and have started a war.



id like a plumbus as well



>Then we'd crash the probe into their warlord at 0.15c, and have started a war.

yes please

our probe has to land in the Royal Imperial Planetary Nursery and kill the Galactic Emperors children

>SUPER Earth




nuclear blast propulsion is an option for an unmanned craft







>America sees a less developed people living on super-earth

>decides to invade to conquer the entire planet

>We actually become the alien invaders of another planet

this is actually the most likely scenario


So, if there is intelligent life there, they have by now been able to receive our televisionsignals from 1939 to 1977. Keeping in mind that they now have been treated to I love Lucy, the Liberace show, Batman and Welcome back Kotter, it's no surprise we haven't heard from them.



Fuck off James Cameron

That planet is probably full of turbocancer and space-AIDS

thats exactly what radio waves are tho, is light oscillating too slowly to be visible

Yeah, but we know Time Dilation IS a thing (since we know entropy has a finite speed, the speed of light/c we know that the closer you get to c the less entropy has effect on you, and this also means time since time is just a measurement of entropy)

So while it may take the craft 2000 years for observers on the ground, it might actually take less for the people on the craft. How much less I have no idea

>Humans have achieved only 2% of the speed of light relative to earth

>relative to earth

what did he mean by this?



The apparent speed of light from the perspective of earth.



Does that mean if you Bob your head up and down really fast you'll see radio waves instead of blurs?

What's the wavelength difference between light and microwave??? Hmmmm.


Why haven't other planets thought of sending us signals?



I like to imagine they received a few errant packets of wi-fi that shot off into space, found loli porn and furry porn in them and then decided to never talk to us ever.



But the speed of light in a vacuum is a constant?


I know its all been said before but why are we so eager to send out signals to other planets. Why do we assume other species would be accepting of us?

They might see of as a threat or may be looking into other planets to inhabit as well. And the odds that they evolved with any resemblance to us are highly unlikely. Probably it has something to do with humans inflated egos and believing we are the smartest species to have existed so far.

That's probably how we seem to ayys.

they won't even see us coming



Speed is relative, retard. Have you ever ridden in a car before? Or on a plane?




All speeds are relative except the speed of light, retard. How do you think special relativity works?
