as there are way tooooooo many threads on this forum (very annoying) I shall start this Space thread where space news can be posted, space news related to new alien planets, space technology and anything related to space, Discussion is welcomed as well, but in moderation.

Interesting article I've come across.

I will not conform my space posts to this thread. (there are not enough posts on this forum!) Anyway, i will gladly talk in this thread about things that do not warrant their own thread. The logical choice is Alpha Centauri, but we have barnards star, wolf 359, lalande 2215. We also have Sirius, Tau Ceti and Epsilon Eridani at a little bit further distances.

I think, especially as we grow, it might be worth re-thinking how this news section works... a lot of threads do get posted and solicit no or low responses, amalgamating certain topics into collective news threads like those stickied at the top of this forum might be the way to go...

I'll be posting all space news in this thread, anyone wishing to add space news here is free to do so, I just like ll my space news in one place where i can read them all at leisure and can go back to if i want to research stuff. This is how I did on SSC, knew every post on Space thread i've made, was easy for me to find anything relevant and go back if needed to.

Agreed. I've pinned it.

Hope you don't mind, but I renamed it too. :)

What is true, just, and beautiful is not determined by popular vote. The masses everywhere are ignorant, short-sighted, motivated by envy, and easy to fool. Democratic politicians must appeal to these masses in order to be elected. Whoever is the best demagogue will win. Almost by necessity, then, democracy will lead to the perversion of truth, justice and beauty. -Hans Hermann Hoppe

Comet Hartley 2 contains water more like that found on Earth than all the comets we know about, researchers say.

Wow, Water found on a comet that was more water than on Earth.

I think you might have misinterpreted the article slightly. It’s saying that the water that the comet contains is the most ‘earth like’ we’ve found, not that the comet contains more water than is on the Earth...

ESA’s Venus Express spacecraft has discovered an ozone layer high in the atmosphere of Venus. Comparing its properties with those of the equivalent layers on Earth and Mars will help astronomers refine their searches for life on other planets.
