Survey telescopes set up in Antarctica are being used by Chinese astronomers to look for alien planets.

Daily Galaxy said:

Chinese astronomers, actively searching for Earth-like planets using survey instruments in Antarctica, believe efforts to seek an extra-solar planet that that harbors life will soon be rewarded.

We only look the way we do because of the planet we live on.i.e atmosphere gravity temperature etc.If for example we did not need air to exist then there would be know need for lungs or rib cage etc,.

Various telescopes have found several extra-solar planets but Kepler was the king of the hill and found hundreds all by itself.  It is curently off-line due to a reaction wheel failure.  http://www.nasa.gov/...view/index.html

Believing when there is no compelling evidence is a mistake.  The idea is to withhold belief until there is compelling evidence and if the universe does not comply with our predispositions, okay, then we have the wrenching obligation to accommodate to the way the universe really is.  - Carl Sagan

Who is more humble, the scientist who looks at the universe with an open mind and accepts whatever the universe has to teach us or somebody who says everything in this book should be considered the literal truth and never mind the fallibility of the human beings involved in the writing of this legend - Carl Sagan

Uhm, so? What does that have to do with looking for extra-solar planets?

Wrong thread, right??? :P

Hey thanks!

You are welcome. And welcome to UM, I hope you will enjoy your time here :) Feel free to ask questions, there are some very knowledgeable posters here in a large variety of fields that are not shy of sharing their vast knowledge. I have personally have taken great advantage of that fact and learned a lot along the way. The only stupid questions are those not asked.
