Hubble Finds Water Vapor On Distant Exoplanet

  • Am 11 Sep 2019 veröffentlicht
  • With data from the Hubble Space Telescope, water vapor has been detected in the atmosphere of an exoplanet within the habitable zone of its host star.
    K2-18b, which is eight times the mass of Earth, is the only planet orbiting a star outside the solar system (or “exoplanet”) within the habitable zone.

    Nice animations until the cringy blasphemous reflection of the Earth in the mirror of the James Webb 1:35 - 1:38. Looks like a reflection in a funhouse mirror!
    The surface of the mirror would have to be manufactured with such a tolerence that there would be no way to detect imperfections with the naked eye. It should look flawless.
    It was haunting to watch it again just to get the time markers of the video. I'm probably going to have nightmares about it, thanks NASA..

    Us humans are very, does it have a magnetic field to shield us from radiation? Does it rotate so that we dont get too hot? Does it have a 1G gravity field? Sad to say if any of these are missing or not up to specs, then we cannot live there...but then again, maybe something else can which is why these planets must be protected from rapatious beings such as ourselves...

    • Joshua Shaw
      Joshua Shaw Vor Tag

      Good questions Will. I'm sure there is not enough data to speak to most of them, but they did sort-of answer one at 0:43. The relationship between mass and gravitational attraction suggests that it will be much greater than 1G, but not a full 8G at the surface (unless the planet is the same size as earth but 8 times the density).

    The planet earth is miraculous, perfection, but greedy people are destroying that. So will humans travel from one beautiful planet to the next to do the same thing?

    We have such beautiful nature on this planet. I can not believe, that instead of saving this miraculous planet, we just look for another planet to live on and think that is not going to happen there too.

    Will humans ever learn?

    O how easily men are deceived into imaginations of men.
    Ironic how the majority of men who trust in nasa do not believe in God; heliocentricity is the birth place of an atheistic mind. Whereas Nasa believes in God but chooses the side of wickedness in deceiving men. Why would they lie? Don’t be so dull mankind! Would you not lie for 1million dollars? Let alone $52,000,000 a day! Truly though money isn’t the reason.
    The god of this world has power over the children of disobedience (reprobates) those who choose not to retain God in their thoughts...
    He has a name. Satan prince of the power of the air. Carnal minded men cannot receive this message for they are spiritually discerned but truly the god of this world has the world glued to ball believism
    And a magical force holds it in orbit it’s become a spinning idol. Absolute lunacy.
    Choose u reprobates Bible or science textbook
    One written by men the other Holy men filled with God’s Spirit. Your mind your choice believe what thou wilt.
    If you learn the Bible you can learn truth.
    The world is simply divine. It truly is that simple. God’s creation not Satans ball deception.
    God made a way for the believer and this is faith in his Son Jesus Christ. TRUST IN HIS WORD!
    Seek him while he may yet be found...

      @Tsubasa nobody clearly knows whats beyond this earth. elites might be knowing but not sure. so according to you big bang created everything from nothing and accidently we are created, evolution happened with unguided gene mutation which itself is an accident and it seems guided journey and that too just by itself with magic without any intelligent intervention? your body is there with the highest level of biological engineering at the lowest level and it just got created by itself? life and consciousness cannot come by itself magically in any lifeless matter. it never happened. there is heliocentric model favouring earth only and mainstream scientists till now are rubbing their asses so hard to find another earth like planet with life. according to you big bang and evolution was lazy enough just to create earth and life from nothing magically and didn't create anything intelligent other than the earth?
      i think you need to rethink about your existence and purpose about which you are not fully aware and you will not think about it coz you are just an accident without any purpose being here.
