  • Two Confirmed Planets at Proxima Centauri. One in the Habitable Zone!

    9:18

    Astronomers have discovered thousands of exoplanets, and still need to confirm thousands more. And over the coming decades, we’ll probably learn of millions of planets, orbiting stars we’ve never heard of.

    That’s why it’s reassuring to know astronomers are learning a tremendous amount about the closest star system to our own, Proxima Centauri. In fact, we now know of two planets orbiting the red dwarf star, one of which is in the habitable zone.

  • Stephen Hawkings Stark Warning for Humans to Leave Earth

    3:06

    In one of his final on-camera appearances, iconic physicist Stephen Hawking issued a warning to humanity about the existential threats we face and how our survival depends on colonizing another planet.

  • Proxima C: A Potential Super Earth Discovered Orbiting Proxima Centauri!

    13:02

    From what this new world could mean, to whether it's one we'll colonize, join me as we explore the Potential super Earth discovered orbiting Proxima Centauri, our Neighbor Star!

    Let's start at the beginning of all of this, shall we? When it comes to exploring space, there are many goals that astronomers and astrologers try to accomplish. One of the basic ones is just to learn more about the universe as a whole. Trying to fill in the pieces of the puzzle that is the cosmos, and especially in the most recent of years we've been doing a good job of finding things big and small across the stars. Including finding some new things in our very own solar system.
    But the other main goal that has taken up a lot of our time is the search for planets that could not just house life, but also, be a potential colony point for humanity should the need and technology arise. We've looked across the stars and have found many planets that COULD be what we are looking for, but in terms of immediate evacuation the best contender that we have is the Alpha Centauri System. We've talked about this star and its planets before, but to give you the jist of it, there is a star within this system we call Proxima Centauri. It's a Red-Dwarf star that is smaller than our sun, and also emits less heat than the sun we have.
    As we started to observe this system we found a planet we call Proxima Centauri B. This planet was within the Habitable Zone of the star, and given what we know about it so far, it could just be the planet that we go to in order to live amongst the stars in more than one place. In fact, many sci-fi stories have used the Alpha Centauri system as a place where a colony has been formed, including the recent Netflix reboot of Lost In Space.
    Anyway, a lot of research has gone into not just studying Proxima Centauri B, but also, trying to find ways to get there in a quicker amount of time. You see, Proxima Centauri is 4.2 light years away from Earth. That may not sound like a lot, but at our best speeds it'd take tens of thousands of years depending on the craft we used and whether we'd be going at top speeds of the best craft that we have. Obviously, not a good option. There are initiatives to try and get there faster, including Breakthrough Starshot, but whether it works or not is very much up in the air.
    However, while we are still trying to figure out how we get to Proxima Centuari B, we're still studying the planet and the system itself to see how much information can be found out about it, including whether we can indeed live there. As this research was going on in 2019, a signal suddenly reached Earth that hinted at something we didn't know about before.
    There's a third planet near Proxima Centauri:
    “We are pleased to show you, for the first time, what is for us a new candidate planet around Proxima that we call Proxima c,” Mario Damasso of Italy’s Observatory of Turin initially announced during the 2019 Breakthrough Discuss conference. A paper describing the potential planet appears today in the journal Science Advances.
    “It is only a candidate,” Damasso continued. “This is very important to underline.”
    Why do they say it's only a candidate? That would be because we can't definitively confirm that it is a planet. We know that SOMETHING else is orbiting the star known as Proxima Centauri, but that doesn't mean it's definitively a planet. Because of the system itself, our distance from it, and our own technology at the moment, there is some margin for error as to what it could be.
    I know that may sound a bit pessimistic, but think about it like this, if we were able to map everything so well...why didn't we know about this sooner? I mean, we've known about Proxima Centauri and Proxima Centauri B for some time now, right? So how could we not know about this potential extra planet?
    Star mapping is not an exact science despite what people would love to tell you. And as others who have confirmed the strange signal near the star will tell you, the system may hold many more suprises:
    Even the closest planetary system to us may retain interesting surprises, said Fabio Del Sordo in an email, study author and postdoctoral researcher in the department of physics at the University of Crete. Proxima Centauri hosts a planetary system that is much more complex than we knew, and we do not know how many unknown features are waiting to be discovered.
    So, let's assume that this IS indeed a planet, what do we know about it based on the information we have gotten from these signals? Well, first and foremost, the planet is huge. It's what we call a Super Earth, or a planet that could be like Earth in potentia, but is so massive that it breaks the scales.

  • What If a Quasi-Star Entered Our Solar System?

    4:52

    This rogue star has been traveling the Universe. And now, it's finally entering our Solar System. But this isn't just any regular star. It's known as a quasi-star and is one of the biggest stars in existence. What would happen if this star entered our Solar System? And how would Earth be affected?

  • What If We Relocated Humanity to Proxima B?

    8:22

    Even though humanity might not have to leave the Earth in your lifetime, we should start preparing early on. Not only could it take centuries to set up the relocation program, it would take generations to move to a potential new home. That right there is Proxima Centauri b, or just Proxima b. It's the closest potentially habitable planet out there, its temperatures are in the bearable range, and it could just have the right breathable atmosphere. We only have to get there. How long would our journey last?

  • What If We Could Build an Alderson Disk?

    7:44

    This is not some DVD floating in space. It's a megastructure that might one day become humanity's home. The Earth might not remain habitable forever. It could get engulfed by a massive solar flare, or become too hot due to climate change, or have all its life wiped out by one enormous asteroid. What if I told you we could outlive all these disasters? And that we could do that by building a space megastructure bigger than the Sun itself?
    Just how big would we have to make it? And what would life be like on a structure like that?

    A team of specialists from the University of Geneva has confirmed the existence of an exoplanet orbiting in the habitable zone of a neighboring sun.


    Researchers have confirmed the presence of Proxima Centauri B, an exoplanet that orbits in the habitable zone of the star closest to our sun, Proxima Centauri, according to a report published in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics.


    Researchers from the University of Geneva were able to confirm its existence by using a new generation spectrograph located in Chile called ESPRESSO.


    Their observations showed that Proxima B is 1.17 times the mass of Earth and orbits its sun in 11.2 days.


    Proxima B receives similar energy from its sun and could, therefore, harbor life. However, this exoplanet's sun is an active red dwarf and it hits the exoplanet with roughly 400 times the amount of X-rays that Earth receives.

    What if you found out that you had a long-lost relative? And what if that long-lost relative was from a different planet in our galaxy? And what if this faraway planet was home to billions of humans, just like Earth? But these humans don't look anything like us. Because they're from the future. Could aliens be future versions of humans? How far ahead of us would they be?

  • Alpha Centauri / Proxima B - What are they hiding?

    5:13

    Proxima B or Proxima Centauri B - is an exoplanet orbiting in the habitable zone of the red dwarf star Proxima Centauri, which is the closest star to the Sun and part of a triple star system. It is located approximately 4.2 light-years (1.3 parsecs, 40 trillion km, 25 trillion miles, or 265,000 AU) from Earth in the constellation of Centaurus, making it the closest known exoplanet to the Solar System.

    Proxima Centauri b orbits the star at a distance of roughly 0.05 AU (7,500,000 km; 4,600,000 mi) with an orbital period of approximately 11.2 Earth days, and has an estimated mass of at least 1.2 times that of the Earth. The planet is subject to stellar wind pressures of more than 2,000 times those experienced by Earth from the solar wind and the habitability of Proxima Centauri b has not yet been definitively established. Alpha Centauri

    The discovery of the planet was announced in August 2016. The planet was found using the radial velocity method, where periodic Doppler shifts of spectral lines of the host star suggest an orbiting object. From these readings, the radial velocity of the parent star relative to the Earth is varying with an amplitude of about 1.4 metres (4.5 feet) per second. According to Guillem Anglada‐Escudé, its proximity to Earth offers an opportunity for robotic exploration of the planet with the Starshot project or, at least, in the coming centuries.

    Without its orbital inclination known, the exact mass of Proxima Centauri b is unknown. If its orbit is nearly edge-on, it would have a mass of 1.173±0.086 Earth masses. Statistically, there is a roughly 90% chance that the planet's mass is less than 2.77 M⊕ (Earth masses).

    In May 2019, a paper presenting recent Spitzer Space Telescope data concluded that Proxima Centauri b does not transit its sun relative to Earth, and attributed previous transit detections to correlated noise.

  • Planet Proxima b Is The New Hope For Scientists On Quest To Discover The New Earth

    3:18

    Astronomers found a ray of hope in a newly discovered planet called Proxima b in their quest to find a new Earth. Proxima b is 4.2 light-years away from the sun. It has a mass 1.17 times the mass of the Earth. Proxima b sits in the habitable zone of Proxima Centauri and takes 11 days to orbit it.

    The story of humanity is a story of great leaps – out of Africa, across oceans, to the skies and into space. Since Apollo 11’s ‘moonshot’, we have been sending our machines ahead of us – to planets, comets, even interstellar space.

    But with current rocket propulsion technology, it would take tens or hundreds of millennia to reach our neighboring star system, Alpha Centauri. The stars, it seems, have set strict bounds on human destiny. Until now.

    In the last decade and a half, rapid technological advances have opened up the possibility of light-powered space travel at a significant fraction of light speed. This involves a ground-based light beamer pushing ultra-light nanocrafts – miniature space probes attached to lightsails – to speeds of up to 100 million miles an hour. Such a system would allow a flyby mission to reach Alpha Centauri in just over 20 years from launch, beaming home images of its recently-discovered planet Proxima b, and any other planets that may lie in the system, as well as collecting other scientific data such as analysis of magnetic fields.

    Breakthrough Starshot aims to demonstrate proof of concept for ultra-fast light-driven nanocrafts, and lay the foundations for a first launch to Alpha Centauri within the next generation. Along the way, the project could generate important supplementary benefits to astronomy, including solar system exploration and detection of Earth-crossing asteroids.

  • Scientists Found 2 Exoplanets Near A Sun Like Star!

    1:56

    310 light-years away from us, there is a young star TYC 8998-760-1. This star is roughly 17 Million years old with almost the same mass as our Sun. When Scientists were studying this star, they discovered two massive exoplanets orbiting far away from the TYC 8998-760-1.

    The exoplanets are TYC 8998-760-1 b and TYC 8998-760-1 c with mass 14 and 6 times of the Jupiter. Stars with multiple exoplanets are rare. This is for the very first time when we've seen 2 planets orbiting a star.

  • What If Antarctica Were a Rainforest?

    5:58

    About 90 million years ago, the frozen realm of Antarctica used to be a lush, swampy, temperate forest, similar to those found in New Zealand today.
    The rainforest managed to thrive, even with four months of polar night, when there was no Sunlight. What if this ancient rainforest decided it was time to make a comeback? What if Antarctica were a rainforest? Would this work out well for us? Or be devastating for the human race?

    * An Earth-like atmosphere may not survive Proxima b's orbit
    Proxima B -- the nearest known exoplanet to our solar system is probably a dead world despite being in the habitable zone of its host star Proxima Centauri. Any Earth sized world would most likely be unable to hold onto an atmosphere -- leaving its surface exposed to harmful stellar radiation and reducing its potential for habitability.

    *New clues in determining the size of a black hole
    Astronomers have discovered what could be an easy way to determine the size of a spiral galaxy’s supermassive black hole. They’ve found a direct relationship between the geometry of some types of spiral galaxies and the hidden super massive black hole at their centres.

    *Calm seas on Titan could mean smooth landing for future space probes
    Astronomers have determined that the lakes and seas on the Saturnian moon Titan have few waves higher than a centimetre. The findings mean the giant moon probably has little wind – the primary driving force for waves on the oceans of Earth.

    *Huge storm on Neptune
    Astronomers have detected a massive storm as big as the Earth on the distant planet Neptune. This massive 9000 kilometer wide storm system was found in Neptune’s equatorial region – a zone where no bright clouds have ever been seen before.

    From what this new world could mean, to whether it's one we'll colonize, join me as we explore the Potential super Earth discovered orbiting Proxima Centauri, our Neighbor Star!

    Let's start at the beginning of all of this, shall we? When it comes to exploring space, there are many goals that astronomers and astrologers try to accomplish. One of the basic ones is just to learn more about the universe as a whole. Trying to xfill in the piecesx of the puzzle that is the cosmos, and especially in the most recent of years we've been doing a good job of finding things big and small across the stars. Including finding some new things in our very own solar system.
    But the other main goal that has taken up a lot of our time is the search for planets that could not just house life, but also, be a potential colony point for humanity should the need and technology arise. We've looked across the stars and have found many planets that COULD be what we are looking for, but in terms of ximmediate evacuationx the best contender that we have is the Alpha Centauri System. We've talked about this star and its planets before, but to give you the jist of it, there is a star within this system we call Proxima Centauri. It's a Red-Dwarf star that is smaller than our sun, and also emits less heat than the sun we have.
    As we started to observe this system we found a planet we call Proxima Centauri B. This planet was within the xHabitable Zonex of the star, and given what we know about it so far, it could just be the planet that we go to in order to live amongst the stars in more than one place. In fact, many sci-fi stories have used the Alpha Centauri system as a place where a colony has been formed, including the recent Netflix reboot of Lost In Space.
    Anyway, a lot of research has gone into not just studying Proxima Centauri B, but also, trying to find ways to get there in a quicker amount of time. You see, Proxima Centauri is 4.2 light years away from Earth. That may not sound like a lot, but at our best speeds it'd take tens of thousands of years depending on the craft we used and whether we'd be going at top speeds of the best craft that we have. Obviously, not a good option. There are initiatives to try and get there faster, including Breakthrough Starshot, but whether it works or not is very much up in the air.
    However, while we are still trying to figure out how we get to Proxima Centuari B, we're still studying the planet and the system itself to see how much information can be found out about it, including whether we can indeed live there. As this research was going on in 2019, a signal suddenly reached Earth that hinted at something we didn't know about before.
    There's a third planet near Proxima Centauri:
    “We are pleased to show you, for the first time, what is for us a new candidate planet around Proxima that we call Proxima c,” Mario Damasso of Italy’s Observatory of Turin initially announced during the 2019 Breakthrough Discuss conference. A paper describing the potential planet appears today in the journal Science Advances.
    “It is only a candidate,” Damasso continued. “This is very important to underline.”
    Why do they say it's only a xcandidatex? That would be because we can't definitively confirm that it is a planet. We know that SOMETHING else is orbiting the star known as Proxima Centauri, but that doesn't mean it's definitively a planet. Because of the system itself, our distance from it, and our own technology at the moment, there is some margin for error as to what it could be.
    I know that may sound a bit pessimistic, but think about it like this, if we were able to map everything so well...why didn't we know about this sooner? I mean, we've known about Proxima Centauri and Proxima Centauri B for some time now, right? So how could we not know about this potential extra planet?
    Star mapping is not an exact science despite what people would love to tell you. And as others who have confirmed the strange signal near the star will tell you, the system may hold many more suprises:
    xEven the closest planetary system to us may retain interesting surprises,x said Fabio Del Sordo in an email, study author and postdoctoral researcher in the department of physics at the University of Crete. xProxima Centauri hosts a planetary system that is much more complex than we knew, and we do not know how many unknown features are waiting to be discovered.x
    So, let's assume that this IS indeed a planet, what do we know about it based on the information we have gotten from these signals? Well, first and foremost, the planet is huge. It's what we call a xSuper Earthx, or a planet that could be like Earth in potentia, but is so massive that it breaks the scales.

  • Proxima Centauri b - A Second Earth | English | Tinfo Guys

    3:46

    Overview:
    With the advancements in technology, scientists have discovered that there are a few potentially inhabitable planets beyond the Earth. One of those planets is Proxima-b. This planet is approximately 4.2 lightyears away from the Earth, and lies in the habitable zone of the red dwarf star Proxima Centauri. It possesses the capability of having liquid water. If we're lucky it may also possess an atmosphere where we could breathe. However, there are a few problems we must know. It's not necessary that water would be available. Moreover, the stellar wind pressures & x-ray radiation are much more greater than the earth, which will blow away any atmospheres leaving the undersurface as the only place to inhabit. Join in with us to find out more in under 4 minutes!

  • What If the Earth Was One Living Organism?

    4:14

    Even from space, you can see that the planet Earth is full of life. When you take a closer look, you'll discover a delicate balance of millions of different life forms co-existing, and relying on each other to survive. But what if these aren't all unique individual organisms? What if they're all just extensions of one superorganism: the Earth? Could we all just be a part of our planet's life-support system?

  • Exoplanets: The Quest for Strange New Worlds

    1:25:25

    Original air date: January 12 at 7 p.m. PT (10 p.m. ET, 0300 UTC)

    Planets orbiting other stars, or exoplanets, have become an important field of astronomical study over the past two and a half decades. Recent findings from NASA's Kepler mission suggest that nearly every star you see in the night sky probably has exoplanets orbiting it. The number of confirmed exoplanets is now a few thousand. This talk will present a brief history of exoplanet discoveries, the story of the “super-Saturn” extrasolar ring system, and summarize NASA’s ongoing future plans to discover and characterize “strange new worlds.”

  • Proxima Centauri b: Our future Home || Planet of Aliens!!!

    6:18

    Proxima Centauri b (also called Proxima b or Alpha Centauri Cb is an exoplanet orbiting in the habitable zone of the red dwarf star Proxima Centauri, which is the closest star to the Sun and part of a triple star system. It is located approximately 4.2 light-years (1.3 parsecs, 40 trillion km, 25 trillion miles, or 265,000 AU) from Earth in the constellation of Centaurus, making it the closest known exoplanet to the Solar System.

    Proxima Centauri b orbits the star at a distance of roughly 0.05 AU (7,500,000 km; 4,600,000 mi) with an orbital period of approximately 11.2 Earth days, and has an estimated mass of at least 1.3 times that of the Earth. The planet is subject to stellar wind pressures of more than 2,000 times those experienced by Earth from the solar wind, but the habitability of Proxima Centauri b has not yet been definitively established.

    The discovery of the planet was announced in August 2016. The planet was found using the radial velocity method, where periodic Doppler shifts of spectral lines of the host star suggest an orbiting object. From these readings, the radial velocity of the parent star relative to the Earth is varying with an amplitude of about 1.4 metres (4.5 feet) per second. According to Guillem Anglada‐Escudé, its proximity to Earth offers an opportunity for robotic exploration of the planet with the Starshot project or, at least, in the coming centuries.

    Without the inclination of its orbit known, the exact mass of Proxima Centauri b is unknown. If its orbit is nearly edge-on, it would have a mass of 1.27Earth masses. Statistically, there is a roughly 90% chance that the planet's mass is less than 3 M⊕ (Earth masses).

    In May 2019, a paper presenting recent Spitzer Space Telescope data concluded that Proxima Centauri b does not transit its sun relative to Earth, and attributed previous transit detections to correlated noise.
