For many years humanity is looking for the answers to the questions: Are we alone in the universe? Does aliens life exist?. People have different opinion regarding these questions. Some thinks aliens exist and there are other civilizations in the universe besides us, others claim the Earth is the only planet in the universe where life exists.
However, day by day we meet new facts and see new evidence that approve we are not alone.
Below are the top 10 facts approving that aliens are real.
Published the new research, allowing to calculate influence of clouds on climate of alien planets, rotating round red dwarfs. Conclusions of participants of the joint group of the Chicago and Northwest universities are based on exact computer modeling of behavior of clouds in the atmosphere of alien planets. But besides purely scientific interest, this research also allows to draw a conclusion that existence of a cloudy cover twice expands a manned space of red dwarfs. And it means that only in one galaxy in a manned zone of the stars there can be over 60 billion alien planets. The formula for calculation of a manned space of alien planets is places where they can keep liquid water on the surface. But it is insufficiently exact as almost doesn’t consider existence of clouds in the atmosphere of exoplanet.
In the atmosphere of an alien planet HR8799c, which distance from the Earth is approximately 130 light years, the astronomers found vapor of water and carbon monoxide. The astronomers say that in the HR8799c planet, there is no methane, which is a gas that indicates life. The astronomical measurements, which the astronomers did during their observations, are the most precise measurements, which the astronomers have ever made outside of our solar system. Astronomers have founded over 1000 planets beyond our solar system since 1990. Among them the HR8799c is the huge planet. The mass of HR8799c, is approximately seven times more that the mass of Jupiter, which is the largest planet in our solar system. It circles a star with three other planets.
Astronomers discovered a little exoplanet, which has less dimensions and weight, than the smallest planet Mercury in the solar system. The planet Kepler 37b moves around the star in Lira constellation every 13 days. It has 210 light years distance from the Earth. This planet is stone planet, and has approximately 427 Celsius temperature, because of that fact, there cannot go any speech about life.The moon-size Kepler 37b is so close to its parent star, at just 0.10 AU, that it likely has no atmosphere or liquid water on its surface.Kepler 37b was discovered by telescope “Kepler”. The $600 million Kepler mission launched in March 2009, and has found more than 2,740 candidate alien worlds so far.
Astronomer Philippe Delorme from the Institute of Planetology and Astrophysics of Grenoble in France and his team discovered a potential rogue alien planet CFBDSIR2149 using the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope, wandering alone just 100 light-years from Earth, suggesting that such starless worlds may be extremely common across the galaxy.The free-floating object, called CFBDSIR2149, is likely a gas giant planet four to seven times more massive than Jupiter, scientists say in a new study unveiled today (Nov. 14). The planet cruises unbound through space relatively close to Earth (in astronomical terms; the Milky Way galaxy is 100,000 light-years wide), perhaps after being booted from its own solar system.
Venus will pass in front of the sun from Earth’s perspective on Tuesday (June 5; Wednesday, June 6, in much of the Eastern Hemisphere), marking the last such Venus transit until 2117. However, there’s a chance to observe an Earth transit less than two years from now using a little creative thinking, some researchers note. In January 2014, Jupiter will witness a transit of Earth. And we can see it too, the astronomers say, by training NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope on the huge planet and studying the sunlight it reflects.
Astronomers have discovered at least one unseen alien planet, and possibly another, around a distant star by observing the odd behavior of a planet already known to orbit the same star. The newfound planet has about the mass of Saturn and orbits its host star once every 57 days. It was revealed by its gravitational effects on the previously known planet around the parent star KOI-872. The find is an apparent validation of what scientists call the transit timing variation method of finding extrasolar planets.
NASA’s infrared Spitzer Space Telescope spotted light from the alien planet 55 Cancri e, which orbits a star 41 light-years from Earth. A year on the extrasolar planet lasts just 18 hours. The planet 55 Cancri e was first discovered in 2004 and is not a habitable world. Instead, it is known as a super-Earth because of its size: The world is about twice the width of Earth and is super-dense, with about eight times the mass of Earth. But until now, scientists have never managed to detect the infrared light from the super-Earth world. Spitzer first detected infrared light from an alien planet in 2005.
As said alien solar systems that are home to so-called Hot Jupiters are unlikely homes for Earth-like planets. Hot Jupiters get their name from the fact that they are approximately Jupiter’s size, but extraordinarily near their stars, at about a tenth of the distance from Mercury to our sun. These roaster planets are among the alien worlds that astronomers have discovered most often since their size and proximity to their parent stars mean they exert large gravitational tugs on their hosts that scientists can readily spot.
