Discovery of Alien Planets in our Solar System - Planets that Exist Outside Earth’s Solar System

  • Planets that Exist Outside Earth’s Solar System - Discovery of Alien Planets in our Solar System

    00

    McGill Physics student Evelyn Macdonald and her supervisor Prof. Nicolas Cowan used over a decade of observations of Earth's atmosphere taken by the SCISAT satellite to construct a transit spectrum of Earth, a sort of fingerprint for Earth's atmosphere in infrared light, which shows the presence of key molecules in the search for habitable worlds. This includes the simultaneous presence of ozone and methane, which scientists expect to see only when there is an organic source of these compounds on the planet. Such a detection is called a biosignature.

    A handful of researchers have tried to simulate Earth's transit spectrum, but this is the first empirical infrared transit spectrum of Earth, says Prof. Cowan. This is what alien astronomers would see if they observed a transit of Earth.

    Have you ever wondered about planets in other solar systems? Have you ever thought about the possibility of life elsewhere in the Universe? For the first time in human history, we know that planets around other stars not only exist, but are common.

    Alien Worlds focuses on the search and characterization of planets orbiting other stars (called extrasolar planets or “exoplanets”). Over the course of nine modules, we will learn some of the techniques used to discover the thousands of known exoplanets and will discuss how we can use basic scientific tools to characterize the sizes, masses, compositions, and atmospheres of exoplanets. We will also learn about the diversity of stars in the Galaxy to understand how stellar properties affect exoplanet detection techniques and influence planetary formation and habitability.

    Barnard's Star is a very small star about 5 times smaller than our sun. It's our closest single star about 58 trillion km away from us. While scientists were studying it they have discovered a new planet.

    It's called Barnard-B also known as super earth. It's 3 times bigger than earth and orbits beyond habitable zone. According to astronomers, Barnard-B may have ice on the surface and below the sheet of ice there might be alien species living right now.

  • Strange New Worlds: The Search for Alien Planets and Life beyond Our Solar System

    1:7:35

    Google Tech Talk (more info below)
    April 4, 2011

    Presented by Ray Jayawardhana.

    ABSTRACT

    We are living in an extraordinary age of discovery. After millennia of musings and a century of false claims, astronomers have found hundreds of planets around other stars since 1995. These discoveries have surprised us and challenged our views many times over. At the crux of the astronomers' pursuit is one basic question: Is our solar system, with planets in circular orbits, gas giants in the outer realm and at least one warm, wet, rocky world teeming with life, the exception or the norm? It's an important question for every one of us. Astronomers expect to find alien earths by the dozens within the next three years, and to take their spectra, looking for telltale signs of life, before this decade is out. If they succeed, the ramifications for all areas of human thought and endeavour --from religion and philosophy to art and biology-- are profound, if not revolutionary. What's at stake is a true measure of our own place in the cosmos.

    In Strange New Worlds, renowned astronomer Ray Jayawardhana brings the latest news from the forefront of research, including some of his own findings, and tells a tale rich in history and personalities.

    RAY JAYAWARDHANA is a Professor and Canada Research Chair in Observational Astrophysics at the University of Toronto. A graduate of Yale and Harvard and a recent winner of Canada's Top 40 Under 40, he uses many of the world's largest telescopes to explore planetary origins and diversity. He is the author of over eighty papers in scientific journals. His discoveries have made headlines worldwide, including in Newsweek, Washington Post, New York Times, Globe and Mail, Sydney Morning Herald, âBBC, NPR and CBC, and have led to numerous accolades such as the Steacie Prize. He is an award-winning writer whose articles have appeared in The Economist, Scientific American, New Scientist, Astronomy, and Sky & Telescope. He is also a popular speaker and a frequent commentator for the media.

  • NASA reports seeing the 1st confirmed alien object to enter Earths solar system

    3:16

    NASA: Scientists were surprised and delighted to detect --for the first time-- an interstellar asteroid passing through our solar system. Additional observations brought more surprises: the object is cigar-shaped with a somewhat reddish hue. The asteroid, named ‘Oumuamua by its discoverers, is up to one-quarter mile (400 meters) long and highly-elongated—perhaps 10 times as long as it is wide. That is unlike any asteroid or comet observed in our solar system to date, and may provide new clues into how other solar systems formed.

  • NASA found 7 “Earthlike” planets

    43

    NASA has discovered seven planets with Earth-like qualities orbiting a nearby star making them among the strongest candidates in the continued search for extraterrestrial life among known exoplanets, or planets that exist outside of our own solar system.

  • Planets that Exist Outside Earth’s Solar System. - Hunting for Hidden Life on Exoplanets

    48:03

    The term evolution usually refers to the biological evolution of living things. But the processes by which planets, stars, galaxies, and the universe form and change over time are also types of evolution. In all of these cases there is change over time, although the processes involved are quite different.

    In the late 1920s the American astronomer Edwin Hubble made a very interesting and important discovery. Hubble made observations that he interpreted as showing that distant stars and galaxies are receding from Earth in every direction. Moreover, the velocities of recession increase in proportion with distance, a discovery that has been confirmed by numerous and repeated measurements since Hubble's time. The implication of these findings is that the universe is expanding.

  • The Search for Alien Planets - May 1, 2020

    52:29

    In 1992, humanity discovered the first two planets outside of our solar system. Now, we know of at least 4,100 such planets. How did humanity find these? What did we learn? And what's coming next? Let's explore this together and find out some of what the universe has in store!

    This class is ideal for ages 10-18.

  • How Do We See Alien Worlds?

    4:56

    Scientists think that prime real estate for extraterrestrial life lies in the habitable zones of solar systems—regions where conditions are just right for liquid water to exist. But how do you see a planet outside of our solar system in the first place? Astronomer Dimitar Sasselov explains how researchers use the Kepler space telescope to spot planets circling distant stars in this clip from Alien Life: Will We Know It When We See I?, part of the Big Ideas series at the 2014 World Science Festival.

  • The Search for Primitive and Intelligent Life on Other Planets

    1:22:58

    Professor Abraham (Avi) Loeb, chair of the Astronomy department, Harvard University.
    Are we alone? Probably not, out of modesty - keeping in mind that about a quarter of all stars host a habitable Earth-size planet. Upcoming searches for primitive life will aim to detect oxygen or methane in the atmospheres of transiting planets. Searches for intelligent life will aim to detect artificial signals in the radio or optical bands, as well as artifacts such as megastructures, solar cells that are used to re-distribute light and heat on tidally-locked planets, industrial pollution or artificial light beams. Our own civilization is starting to study the feasibility of interstellar travel using a powerful laser beam pushing on a lightweight sail, the so-called Starshot Initiative. If successful, we might receive a signal from outer space stating: welcome to the interstellar club!.

  • What Color Is Sunset On An Alien Planet? | Zachory Berta-Thompson | TEDxBoulder

    9:47

    Sunlight filtering through Earth’s atmosphere makes beautiful colors at sunset, and it also broadcasts evidence of photosynthetic life on our planet out into the Cosmos. Many of the billions of other stars in the Milky Way Galaxy have planets similar to Earth. Astronomy professor Zach Berta-Thompson explains how we might search for life outside our Solar System by observing the colors of sunsets on some of these alien worlds. Every star in the sky is a Sun, just like our own, and astronomers recently determined that most of those stars have planets. Some of these “exoplanets” eclipse their stars as seen from Earth, causing momentary dips in the stars’ brightness. Zach Berta-Thompson uses small telescopes to search for new exoplanets by watching for these dips (he helped find a few!), and he uses big telescopes to study these exoplanets’ atmospheres (particularly, the color of their sunsets). He is a professor of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences at the University of Colorado at Boulder. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

  • A Potentially Habitable Super Earth Has Been Discovered

    10:02

    The universe is too big for us to be the only ones in it. It's just a matter of knowing where to look, and scientists from NASA's TESS program might have stumbled across the next clue in this galactic scavenger hunt. The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite was launched in April of 2019 with the aim of locating planets in orbit around nearby stars.

    One of these stars is the comparatively small GEE-JAY 357. It's about 31 light-years from Earth. It's one of the closest to Earth! Thanks to TESS, NASA astronomers discovered a planet orbiting this distant star. And in fact, it’s one of the few whose atmosphere can be studied by scientists, once they determine if it has one!

    Why we can't see those planets directly 6:57

    #planets #space #brightside

    SUMMARY:
    - GEE-JAY 357 b is believed to be about twenty-two percent larger than Earth, and eleven times closer to its star than Mercury is to the Sun.
    - Scientists have discovered planets beyond our solar system before, but GEE-JAY 357-b is one of the closest to Earth.
    - Hidden beyond the semi-molten glow of this “hot Earth,” as astronomers called it, were two more planets. One of them, GEE-JAY 357-d is just far enough from the star to potentially support life.
    - Its orbiting inside its solar system's habitable zone, warm enough to support life, but not so warm that it ends up charbroiled.
    - NASA scientists estimate that that planet has an average temperature of about minus sixty-four degrees. That’s cold, comparable to the interior of Antarctica.
    - I wouldn’t expect any alien visitors for most of the same reasons humans will probably never be visiting GEE-JAY 357-d for themselves.
    - If intelligent life developed, there’s no reason to believe it wouldn’t sooner or later turn its sensory organs to the stars. That's when the planet's gravity becomes an obstacle. I
    - Scientists have estimated that reaching the moon of a planet ten times the size of Earth, would require almost five hundred thousand tons of fuel to get off the ground.
    - It is worth noting that Astronomers haven't yet been able to see any of these planets directly. The TESS only discovered the massive and hot planet b because of its silhouette passing in front of the star.
    - Since c and d never passed between Earth and GEE-JAY 357 during the month when TESS was able to capture images of the star, we've only been able to study them indirectly.
    - The middle planet, called GEE-JAY 357-c just to make things confusing, didn’t even give us that. Because of its unusually tilted orbit, this planet never passes between Earth and its star at all.

  • Exoplanets, Water & Alien Life: New Space Discovery

    5:10

    Millions and millions and MILLIONS of kays away from Earth lies a planet that has scientists very excited!

    For the first time ever they reckon they've discovered water in the atmosphere of a planet that's really similar to Earth.

    This is K2 - 18B!

    It might not have a super exciting name, but it does contain something super exciting - water vapour!

    Eh, when you say it out loud it doesn't sound super exciting but it is!

    Because it's the first time scientists have been able to find water in the atmosphere of another planet that is similar to Earth.

    And do you know what that means?

    It could be home to life, as in alien life!

    You see, for a planet to be habitable you need a few key ingredients.

    For starters scientists reckon they have to be rocky like Earth and sit in just the right spot in relation to their star, where it's not too hot and not too cold for liquid water to exist.

    And while we've already found hundreds of Earth like exoplanets, K2 - 18B is the first one with water in it's atmosphere.

    Which means there is a good chance it could have water on its surface.

    But before you go packing your bags to visit any potential alien neighbours, scientists reckon the planet probably has too much radiation for humans to visit.

    Plus it would take almost 2 million years to reach, hmmm...

    FIRE FIGHTER CHOCOLATE REWARD

    Authorities say a bushfire burning in Peregian on the Sunshine Coast is now under control and they've just released some crazy body cam footage from police officers who were helping people get out of the area.

    You can see how close the fire is to the houses.

    So the police had to move so fast to get everyone out.

    They even helped put out a burning tree with someone's hose in their front yard!

    To thank them for what they did one of the neighbourhood kids gave the policeman a tasty little present.

    TAYLOR SWIFT TO PERFORM AT MELBOURNE CUP

    Taylor Swift has announced an Aussie show and it's not where you'd expect!

    She'll be performing a couple of songs at the Melbourne Cup in November.

    Organisers say anyone with a general admission ticket will be able to see the show.

    But some of her animal activist fans say racing isn't good for the horses and they want her to cancel the event.

    BOOMERS INTO SEMI FINALS
    The Boomers can not be beat!

    For the first time ever, Australia is through to the semi finals of the Basketball World Cup.

    Yep the Aussies are seriously on fire in China!

    They beat the Czech Republic by 12 points overnight with Patty Mills delivering a brilliant performance as always.

    It was pretty close in the first half, But the Aussies really pulled away in the third quarter thanks to awesome efforts from Chris Golding and Andrew Bogut.
    Patty Mills finished the game with 24 points, showing why he's the favourite to win the comp's MVP award.

    Meanwhile we got some other awesome news yesterday, the US are out!

    They were beaten by France in a huge upset, which makes this year the first time they haven't competed for a medal since 2002!

    Sad for America, great for us!

    The Boomers will play Spain in the semi-finals tomorrow.

    They beat the Aussies at the 2016 Olympics so lets just say there's history.

    Should make for a great game!

    SECRET CODE COINS

    Have you ever wanted to crack a secret code?

    Well now's your chance!

    The Royal Australian Mint has released 20 thousand espionage inspired 50 cent coins encrypted with a secret message!
    And to crack it you have to use a code similar to one real-life spies used to use!

    It's all to mark the 70th anniversary of Australia's spy agency, ASIO.

    And whoever solves the puzzle has the chance to wim, wait for it... another coin!

    The only one ever designed by ASIO.
    The catch is - they're only being sold, not circulated.

    $10 for a 50 cent piece, worth it?

    We'll let you decide.

    Space Science Episode 4: Planets - the search for a new world
    Not until 2015 was this promising exoplanet tracked down by NASA telescopes. The geophysical characteristics indicate Earth-like temperatures and even water in liquid form is likely. Meanwhile, astrophysicists suspect a solar system similar to ours around each star; discovering more and more Earth-like celestial bodies. Physicist Prof. Dr. Ulrich Walter explains in this episode of Spacetime, the dynamics involved in the search for extraterrestrial life today.

  • Is There Intelligent Life On Other Planets?

    Now that we know planets are common in our galaxy, how would we tell if one holds life? Sure, it will take incredibly powerful telescopes and ambitious new space missions, but what are we looking for? What are we listening for? How do we help other worlds know that we are here?

    Here's the thing: Life on Earth has an expiration date. No matter what humans do, our aging sun will eventually be so hot that we can't survive. If we want to live on, it will have to be beyond Earth. The only question is, will it be US who live on, or just our radio broadcasts and dead satellites?

  • Ross 128 b: Nearby earth-like planet could support alien life

    1:23

    Scientists using an observatory in Chile have discovered an Earth-like planet, 11 light years away from our own.

    Dubbed the Ross 128 b, it's thought its warm, rocky environment may support life.

    The new world was found after more than a decade of intensive space monitoring.

    The planet can't be observed directly, so it's hard to say whether an atmosphere or water exist. However, it gives scientists important clues about potential life outside our solar system.

    Al Jazeera's Andy Gallacher reports.

  • PREVIEW: Alien Planets & Eyeball Earths

    1:39

    Music by Zero Project. The hunt for planets beyond our solar system has reached a fever pitch. With some 500 planets revealed by ground telescopes, now, the ultimate planet finder, the Kepler space telescope, has released a tsunami of data. Among over a thousand new planet prospects are 200 multi-planet solar systems and 58 worlds in life-friendly orbits. They're all within a narrow window on the sky the size of your hand. That's why this may be the tip of the iceberg in a galaxy that's literally crawling with planets. Scientists are now beginning to envision what these worlds are like, with atmospheres, oceans, geological history. In the process, they are redefining what a planet might need to spawn life.

    Alien worlds resembling giant eyeballs might exist around red dwarf stars, and researchers are now proposing experiments to simulate these distant planets and see how capable they are of supporting life.


    Phantom ExoPlanet in Nearby Star System Found Surrounded by Massive Comet Swarms

    Astronomers exploring the disk of debris around the young star Beta Pictoris have discovered a compact cloud of carbon monoxide located about 8 billion miles (13 billion kilometers) from the star. This concentration of poisonous gas - usually destroyed by starlight - is being constantly replenished by ongoing rapid-fire collisions among a swarm of icy, comet-like bodies.
