    The first extra-solar planet – or exoplanet – was only discovered in 1995. Now, a new space-based telescope has discovered thousands more, and some of them may be just like Earth.
    Planet Hunters follows the astrophysicists at the forefront of the search for Earth’s twin, and tells the little-known story of the two Canadians who invented the technique that made modern planet-hunting possible. Gordon Walker and Bruce Campbell also detected the first exoplanet ever discovered, but that’s not what the history books say…

  • Space Science Documentary - Searching for ANOTHER Earth - The Planet Hunters Guide

    30:37

    The planets around our star, the sun, are not the only ones out there. For years, people have wondered what exists beyond the one star, eight planets, and 710,000 minor planets (including dwarf planets, asteroids, etc.) in our Solar System. In 600 BC, exoplanets were discussed as we would discuss the idea of alternative universes today – once Aristotle landed on the idea of Earth being unique, that was that and all speculation was shut down. It wasn’t until the Renaissance that the idea was revisited by Giordano Bruno. He claimed that there are ‘countless suns and countless Earths rotating around their suns in exactly the same way’, and that we only see their suns rather than the planets themselves. His teachings led him to be executed for blasphemy and heresy, and his idea was rejected.

    In the 20th century, ideas moved more rapidly. Isaac Newton also hypothesised that exoplanets exist, but had no means of testing his hypothesis. In 1952, Otto Struve claimed that we only know of our star and our Solar System but that there is more beyond. In 1992, Wolszczan and Frail found other stars at the end of their lives (pulsars), and three years later Mayor and Queloz observed a Jupiter-sized planet (now termed a “hot Jupiter”) that orbit around their stars. The idea that exoplanets exist had sunk in.

    U.S. space agency NASA announced the discovery of more than 200 new planets on Monday, 10 of which are believed to be about the right size and temperature to support life.

    Of the 219 new suspected planets to have been discovered by NASA's Kepler telescope, 10 were found to exist in the so-called 'Goldilocks zone' of their solar system. This refers to the distance between the planet and their star, which is neither too hot nor too cold to support complex life.

    The presence of liquid water on these rocky Earth-like planets is seen as a key ingredient required for the existence of life.

    Are we alone? Maybe Kepler today has told us indirectly, although we need confirmation, that we are probably not alone, Mario Perez, Kepler program scientist, said at a news conference.

    NASA launched the Kepler telescope in 2009 in a bid to discover whether other Earth-like planets are common or rare.

    The latest identification of suspected exoplanets – planets outside our own solar system – brings the tally discovered by the Kepler telescope to 4,034. The number of worlds thought to be approximately the same size and temperature as Earth is around 50.

  • The New Planet Hunters. Who Will Find Earth 2.0?

    17:03

    We now know of thousands of confirmed exoplanets, with many more candidates. And there are now dozens of planet hunting telescopes on Earth and in space, using a range of techniques to find tens of thousands more.

    There’s a new class of instruments and missions in the works that’ll give us an incredible understanding about the planets orbiting other stars. One of these will be the one to find Earth 2.0.

  • The Search For A Second Earth - Space Documentary HD

    2:39:01

    In the 400 years since Galileo Galilei first held a telescope to the heavens, astronomers have laid bare some of the deepest mysteries of the cosmos. They have seen comets crash into planets, found oceans inside moons, and witnessed the shudder of spacetime as black holes collide.

    But space remains a realm of the unknown. Writing in the journal Nature on Thursday, scientists in Canada reported the detection of mysterious radio signals from halfway across the universe. It is only the second time that repeating fast radio bursts, or FRBs, have been spotted.

    Astronomers have yet to formulate a full theory of what produces these enigmatic, rapid-fire beams of electromagnetic waves. And in the absence of a firm explanation, speculation has fallen, perhaps inevitably, on alien civilisations. Avi Loeb, a Harvard astronomer, has proposed that FRBs might be powerful energy beams used to propel alien spacecraft.

    It is not the first time that poorly-understood cosmic phenomena have been ascribed to industrious extraterrestrials. When in 2015 astronomers noticed a star, 1,500 light years distant, dimming and brightening, researchers suggested an “alien megastructure” might be revolving around it, and collecting energy for its constructors. Then, in 2017, the massive cigar-shaped ‘Oumuamua barrelled into the solar system, the first interstellar object known to do so, and prompted speculation that it was a tumbling spacecraft.

    Chris French, head of the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit at Goldsmiths, University of London, said it was natural for humans to see aliens behind every cosmic mystery. “We have what is called an intentionality bias,” he said. “It’s the assumption that whenever something happens, something or someone made it happen for a reason. In the context of space, that someone is always going to be aliens.”

    The evolutionary argument for intentionality bias, or “agenticity”, is that our ancient ancestors fared better if a rustle in the bushes made them run for cover rather than assume it was the wind. “At the end of the day, our brains evolved to keep us alive rather than apprehend the truth of the universe,” said French.

    The late astronomer Carl Sagan spotted the dilemma for scientists. They can become cranks if they are too open-minded, but may miss out on landmark discoveries if they are not open-minded enough. “It seems to me what is called for is an exquisite balance between two conflicting needs,” he said. “The most sceptical scrutiny of all hypotheses that are served up to us and at the same time a great openness to new ideas.”

    Duncan Lorimer, an astrophysicist at West Virginia University, discovered the first FRB in 2007. When his team spotted the radio burst, the possibility of it being a message from ET certainly came up. “We absolutely thought about aliens,” he said. “We only had the one object. We looked for patterns in the signal and couldn’t find anything, but we definitely considered it.”

    Now, mention of aliens is beginning to wear thin. “It helps to sell the story, but at this point I do roll my eyes a bit,” he said. Many astronomers now favour the idea that FRBs are intense beams of radiation shed by charged particles as they are whipped around by strongly magnetised neutron stars. “It seems like a more plausible idea, but I don’t want to rule out aliens completely,” he said. “I’ve been wrong before.”

    Planet Just Like The Earth in Our Solar System - Full Documentary HD

    Planet Hunter
    A team of researchers just used the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO’s) High Accuracy Radial velocity Planet Searcher (HARPS) to discover a low-mass alien planet — also known as an “exoplanet” — orbiting the red dwarf star Ross 128. Notably, this planet has a mass that is similar to Earth’s.

    In fact, it’s thought that the planet, formally known as Ross 128 b, could be similar to Earth in terms of both its size and surface temperature. And it is just 11 light-years from our solar system, making it the second-closest temperate planet to ever be detected. Ultimately, the little world comes in just after Proxima b.

    “This discovery is based on more than a decade of HARPS intensive monitoring together with state-of-the-art data reduction and analysis techniques,” said Nicola Astudillo-Defra of the University of Geneva, who co-authored the paper outlining the exoplanet’s discovery, in a press release. “Only HARPS has demonstrated such precision, and it remains the best planet hunter of its kind, 15 years after it began operations.”

    Alpha Centauri May Have Habitable Planets, if Only We Can Get There

    Astronomers Seek New Home Closer to Home

    By Joel Achenbach
    Washington Post Staff Writer
    Monday, June 1, 2009

    The nearest Earth out there in space? It might be right next door, galactically speaking.

    Two teams of astronomers, one from the United States and one from Europe, are in a race to find a planet orbiting our near neighbors Alpha Centauri A and Alpha Centauri B, twin stars that appear from Earth as a single point of light.

    I'm betting that there are planets like Earth or Mars or Venus around either or both of those stars, and the only question is whether we'll be able to detect them, said Debra Fischer, an astronomer at San Francisco State University. Backed with U.S. government funding, she is using a telescope in Chile to assemble 100,000 observations of the Centauri system.

    If the astronomers succeed in detecting a planet there, it will be a scientific bombshell -- and it will raise the question of how we might someday send a probe to get a closer look. Alpha Centauri A and B may be our nearest sunlike neighbors (a third, smaller star in the Centauri system, the red dwarf Proxima Centauri, is a hair closer to the Earth), but it's still a long haul from here.

    The problem with interstellar spaceflight is the interstellar part. We happen to live in a universe that is strikingly vacuous. The Centauri system is nearly 26 trillion miles away.

    That's roughly 280,000 times the distance of the Earth from the sun. It's so distant that a beam of light traveling at 186,000 miles per second needs more than four years to cross the interstellar void. If you looked at Alpha Centauri tonight (it's overhead in the Southern Hemisphere), you'd be seeing light emitted right around the time of the second inauguration of George W. Bush.

    To frame it another way: The venerable robotic probe Voyager I, which has traveled farther from Earth than any man-made spacecraft, is racing away at nearly 11 miles per second and has already traveled 10 billion miles. It would need on the order of 80,000 years to reach Alpha Centauri were it traveling in that direction.

    Conventional chemical rockets are useless for interstellar flight because the ratio of the weight of the fuel to the size of the payload rises exponentially (at some point, you'd need a fuel tank the size of the entire universe). Cutting-edge, nuclear-electric propulsion systems can improve velocity by a factor of 10, but that still doesn't make an interstellar trip plausible. And NASA has stopped funding its most speculative propulsion programs.

    Marc Millis, a NASA engineer and propulsion physicist who ran one of the defunct projects (and says he is speaking for himself and not for the space agency), has started a nonprofit organization, the Tau Zero Foundation, in his spare time, hoping to attract attention to research on interstellar flight.

    You need physics breakthroughs, Millis said. Or undiscovered physics.

    In the 1970s, the British Interplanetary Society drew up an elaborate blueprint for what it called Project Daedalus, centered around a 55,000-ton unmanned starship that would make a 50-year journey to Barnard's star, which is 5.9 light-years distant and at the time was thought by some scientists to have at least one planet. It would use a fusion engine (not yet invented) that would propel the spacecraft to 12 percent the speed of light.

    Another popular notion is for a laser-guided light sail. A laser in space, powered by sunlight, would beam energy via a lens to a spacecraft fitted with a thin, light-catching sail. But Fischer said research shows that a light sail wouldn't work for an Alpha Centauri mission.

    Advances in miniaturization have made smaller spacecraft more plausible. The Starship Enterprise of Star Trek is roughly the size of an ocean liner. In real life, proponents of interstellar spaceflight are dreaming of something more like the Cellphone Enterprise: a small, speedy spacecraft, crammed with nanotechnology and capable of beaming snapshots back home.

    Perhaps the first probe would be the size of a sewing needle, says Paul Gilster, author of Centauri Dreams and of a Web site devoted to interstellar travel. The needle probe might be capable of carrying out elaborate auto-assembly instructions, building a research station using natural resources on that distant world. The spacecraft would be like the seed of a machine, rather than the machine itself.

    I'm certain we're going at some point, Gilster said. We're not only going to get probes out there, we're going to get people out there someday. It might take centuries for the people.

  • Florida treasure hunters find 300-year-old coins

    1:01

    Two Florida residents made an amazing discovery on the state’s Treasure Coast. The men were metal detecting on a public beach when they discovered 22 Spanish coins believed to be from a shipwreck more than 300 years old. The silver is estimated to be worth about $6,000 in all and, because they were found on land and not in the ocean, they won’t require a permit to keep their prize.

  • Planet hunters

    3:46

    A team of UC astronomers have eyes on the universe – 24/7 (weather permitting!).

    With the help of international researchers and three identical telescopes in Chile, Australia and South Africa, the team is helping answer some of the great unknowns about the planets in our galaxy.
    For example, how many planets are there around different stars? Do all stars have planets? What type of planets are they? Where are they found in relation to their parent stars?

    Using a technique called microlensing, the researchers are able to detect planets orbiting stars near the centre of the galaxy – thousands of light-years away.
