So, I guess terrestrial planets will need to be categorized in 2 ways:

Habitable by humans
Habitable by others

NASA Discovers New Life: Arsenic Bacteria With DNA Completely Alien To What We Know

NASA - NASA-Funded Research Discovers Life Built With Toxic Chemical

Either way, the definition of life just got more interesting.

I love it when science backs up a reasonable conjecture.

Yeah well apparently it's not reasonable until after the proof is put down. You're stupid for saying such things before evidence shows up.

Astronomy, red dwarf stars: Number of stars in universe may be vastly larger than thought - latimes.com


Quote:
The new census, based on analysis of the light signature of the galaxies using instruments at the Keck Observatory in Hawaii, pushes the total number of stars in the universe to 300 sextillion (that's 100 billion squared, multiplied by 30).
that's what I thought,
last time I counted I got in the high 290s of sextrillions.

seriously, how can anyone know the number of stars in the universe?
did they find the edge, boundaries of the universe?

Silly number to even bother with.

If they've accepted that we can only see a portion of the universe... let alone the fact that popular theory states the universe is forever expanding... why bother?

It would be really nice if all effort and money could be focused on sustaining life on earth first.

My friend, there are so many more doors to knock on before you start pointing fingers at NASA and space exploration.

No my friend, not doors, but people who die from hunger.

It's about spending billions of dollars to prove their is life out there, which will help confirm the belief there is not a God out there.

We are doing a poor job of being our brother's keeper.

Maybe you didnt catch the meaning of my last post. NASA is the least of your worries. Hundreds of billions of dollars, trillions, are wasted on trivial and meaningless nonsense. And where others are dying.

It has nothing to do with proving there is not a God out there. Tell me, if life exists elsewhere or science can prove everything, what does that have to do with God existing?

I'm not getting into a religious debate here. There's nothing athiest about Space Exploration.

I was just wondering why we allow people on this planet to die of hunger.

I know, and that's fine. You're right.

But there's more than enough money to feed everyone in the world. And still continue with space exploration. Money is wasted, literally wasted, on many things. Knowledge is not one of them.

Maybe you should go to Africa, travel that continent from north to south and east to west.

And see the impact that global warming has had there on the land and the flora and the fauna. And how much fertile soil has become sand and desert and the disappearing snows of the Kilimanjaro.

And then ask yourself why you continue to post a lot of the silliness on that topic.

If you're so concerned about people dying of hunger.

It all comes back to water, too.
People are dying from dirty water, a lack of sanitation, not even to mention that there is no water available for agriculture for too many people.

Science is here to help with these problems. I don't know what other research was done with this NASA study, but they were looking at a toxic lake, maybe there will be spill-over research toward the safer, cleaner water end.

And, NASA is a key player in weather research. Very few things can aid the poor and helpless like understanding storm and weather patterns both for the immediate safety of people, but also for the redistribution of fresh water through rainfall.

The total mass of the Universe is already known, so from that a pretty good estimate can be made.
