Conspiracy Theory Thread

Summary: The most well-known conspiracies of our modern age are catalyzed by a crisis of confidence in so-called experts, and seem keen on undermining your trust in authority rather then seeking out any truth, however misguided the premise of that search may be.

28843 What makes you say that it's chances of supporting life are minimal? Perhaps it is my inner pessimist, but even if the planet is the perfect mass, has an atmosphere, and is within the HZ of it's star - that does not automatically mean it will support advanced biological life (by advanced, I d...

Upcoming Astronomy & Science Events - and YOU

Today was the first time I ever heard of " Asteroid Day ". It marks the eve of the Tunguska explosion, widely held to be the work of a bolide. It is a global resolution maintained by the UN in order to raise awareness about asteroids and what humans can do to protect the Earth from a futur...

28838 There's a candidate planet that may be close to confirmation. It's a 1.1±0.1 Earth-radius planet in a 365.4 day orbit around a 0.97 solar-radius sun. If it is confirmed, it would be the _first_ true Earth-analogue. Discovered by Kepler but no ID yet, maybe will be Kepler-16nn. Located at 2MAS...

Science and Astronomy Questions

Unless there was a significant presence of dust or aerosols in the air, a heady atmosphere of O2 and CH4 would be colorless and visibly indistinguishable from our "normal" air of O2 and N2.

The Future of Humanity & Intelligent life in the universe

28760 Blind speculation with no evidence to suggest they would. Indeed. I am not realistically saying that they would, but rather invoking the possibility to be in line with the discussion of a future civilization on this planet discovering our ancient remains. The time period between civilizations...

The Future of Humanity & Intelligent life in the universe

28744 So to burst your bubble, if a future civilization happens, nothing we have done is going to be detected and they will be just as blindly bumbling as we are. I agree with you on the blind and bumbling part. But as for whether or not a future civilization could detect our past presence on this ...

New Members Introduction Thread

28700 Hi All, Although I'm new here, I use SE since years, what shows that I am quite fond of it and is my favorite astronomy software to date (though I used Celestia and Stellarium since their early days for quite some time). I am also a metalhead - my forum name is a reference to the song "T...
