[Blastr]NASA reveals: We're going to Jupiter! - Page 5

post #41 of 105
Europa is probably the most interesting object in our solar system other than Earth, because its frozen water ice, and they think a large ocean is underneath the thick ice shell. If there is water, then its got the highest probability of having some kind of life out of anything else in the solar system. A thick sheet of ice would also act sorta like an atmosphere and keep out solar radiation from penetrating to the ocean below it. Which might make it suitable for some kind of sea base colony in the future. It would be neat if they ended up finding some really strange sea life in the oceans below the ice.

I've always found Io to be quite interesting (I forget if it's a moon of Jupiter or Saturn), it resembles a baked pizza.

You mean the hidden alien colony that has been building that under-ice water base suitable for Earth attack right?

Why be all uppity about it? All he's saying is that it's improbable we are the only forms of life in the galaxy, let alone the universe, and that it's only a matter of time before we find something (no matter how simple or primitive).

doh.gif If I had proof there is other life forms then I wouldn't have said "It's only a matter of time before we find extra-terrestrial life." It's basic math, scientists estimate there is somewhere between 400 billion to 600 billion stars in the Milk way alone. Lets say there is an average of 5 (just a random number I picked) planets per star (5*400 billion = 2 trillion 5*600= 3 trillion) That makes between 2 trillion - 3 trillion planets. Do you really think Earth is the only one that has life forms on?

The chances of Earth being the only planet in the Milky Way with life forms on between 2,000,000,000,000 to 1 - 3,000,000,000,000 to 1

Somehow I don't think Earth is the only planet in the Milky Way that is inhabited.

Why did NASA say before we all gonna die? I hope he's not referring to 2012 cuz i'll rage. 2012 is NOT true. I also think he's talking about the members of NASA. They are old engineers though!

The way things have been going lately over at NASA, it often seems like we'd be lucky just to see another moon mission before we all die.

"we'd be lucky just to see another moon mission before we all die." I am certain they are referring themselves because they are old fellas perhaps.

I'm guessing English is not your native language (and that's fine) -- what the authors of the article (not NASA) mean is that because NASA has been having to deal with budget cut after budget cut, it's hard to imagine there will be another manned mission to the moon in our lifetime (mean the authors of the article and you and myself) -- however, some people at NASA still have some ambition and are planning this mission to Europa. That's the gist of it. It's not an allusion to the whole 2012/Mayan calendar thing tongue.gif
