the sad part is we will not live to see confirmation, and if life there is intelegent even if we send a message to them it would take 20 years for the message to reach them and it would depend on them if they have the technology to recive it the brains to interpret it and the technology to send it back where it would take a nother 20 years for us to get the reply.
and to get visual conformation of life there one would need a ship capable of at least 20% light speed, and some form of cryogenic sleep cause it would take 100 years to get there have a look and send a message back that would take 20 years to reach earth
hahaah i wonder how christ works then does he travel from planet to planet to die and save the E.T s from their original sin. Are we the only ones who ate the apple? where we once all toghether in the garden of eden?
well they found 3 planets here that they thought where habitable the first was to close then they found a planet that was a bit to fare at first they thought it could be habitable, Now they found this one witch is smack in the middle. even if they calculated the goldy locks zone wrong it can still fall on the other 2
The issue is that the zone is only one factor. Being in the zone only implies that ONE criteria for life as we know it has been satisfied. It says nothing about the likelihood of it being inhabited. In addition, the zone was a very, very early rough estimate about where life might be possible. As we learn more and more about where life actually exists we are discovering that the zone may well be totally irrelevant anyway.
well the planet also has to be big enough to support an Atmosphere this one is bigger than the erth so loads of atmosphere for every body, from what we know wather is a key factor (there are extremofiles that live in acid but they are one cell organisms) so the zone is a good bet to look for complex life cause it alowes water in a liquid form.
what else you need for complex life is a good question? on earth we see that life fills every nook and cranny and it uses everything at its disposal.
