Malibu,I’m a writer and currently writing a book that involves space travel to a potentially habitable planet. I’ve done lots of research of potentially habitable planets that we are already aware of and I am aware that scientists believe there to be billions of planets in the Milky Way alone.
What I’m curious about is how likely it would be to find one or more of these potentially habitable planets in proximity closer to the ones we have already found?
Is it possible that scientists haven’t discovered everything near us? Or would I have to be setting my book somewhere much further afield?
I essentially want to create a planet so as to not get too deep into technical issues of impossibilities with already known existing planets.
And yes I am aware that we can’t reach those planets as of now, but I’m setting the book in the future and will invent technology advances to accommodate this issue.
Hope to hear from someone who might have an answer for me.
I think we have a relatively decent grasp on wave and particle but no real understanding of Void.I would like to add 'stream' or 'constant' to ways to move
-maybe pervasively too
"Discover and visit" will be restricted to what we see for a very long time.Does discover imply visit or communicate or both or neither?
"I'm absolutely sure this could possibly work!" - Cayde (in Destiny 1) We already have the ability to send something to the nearest star in just over 20 years using light sails.Excluding FLT, can we as a species ever visit another star system?
We have math and physics in common. That could be used to create or copy a language, no doubt.Whilst possibly forget the SF films - not all the Universe speaks English.
I have high hopes for James Webb Space Telescope, but I never thought about discovering habitable planets. Astronomers continue finding new exoplanets and other objects never known before, but habitable... I don't think it's possible.I`ve read on the website of space industry news about the Ariel space telescope mission and about James Webb Space Telescope- the most expensive telescope ever. I guess that such missions will open us some more information about these exoplanets or will open some new
I expect more surprising science from astronomers because they almost always deliver.Astronomers continue finding new exoplanets and other objects never known before, but habitable... I don't think it's possible.
With the help of a teloscope we cannot define a habitable planet. But such telescope James Webb Space Telescope can give us a hint at the place where some forms of life can exist or find some Earth-alike planets.I have high hopes for James Webb Space Telescope, but I never thought about discovering habitable planets.
