Well its an exciting day in the Chambers house hold.

Tomorrow is my 49th and I’m looking forward to a nice evening with the wife and kids..

I am also eagerly awaiting the latest pictures from the Pluto mission  and my insatiable appetite for knowledge about the solar system and beyond is on over drive.

I’m no expert,  but I sincerely believe that we are not alone in the universe .

  • Come on  – between  100 billion  – 400 billion stars in our galaxy ( Milky Way )
  • and over one 100 billion galaxies out there!
  • And I’ve not even touched on the multiverse
  • The numbers alone our mind boggling

I just find it unconceivable that out of these vast numbers our solar system is the only place that life took hold and evolved into the beautiful earth we know today.

I’m no Expert . But I assume that every thing that was needed to create the conditions for life on earth were no doubt abundant throughout space during the birth and evolution  of space and the birth of Galaxies .

If  the elements for life found their way to out tiny corner of the Milky Way , why not elsewhere?

I’m not saying that life is  abundant throughout our galaxy and the billions of  other galaxies out there , but surely the same elements that kick started life on earth must have travelled through space and found a home on other worlds out there.

Unfortunately  due to the vast distances to these other worlds and galaxies we will never be able to travel to them or indeed send space ships and probes to unlock their secrets.

 Our own Milky Way  is so huge that even at the speed of light it would take 100,000 years to travel across it!

And even if we could travel these vast distances and survive the journey we would find that life on these other hostile worlds was beyond our comprehension , life – but not as we know it!

I expect that most life forms out there are single cell and far below the complex life forms that are found on earth.

But what if there are other more  advance civilizations out there? No matter how advance they may be they will still be faced with the vast distances of space and time and would face the same frustrations as us , being stuck in their tiny corner of their galaxies and asking themselves the age of question”

“ARE WE ALONE”

The mind boggle….

The Drake Equation

The Drake Equation is used to estimate the number of communicating civilizations in the cosmos, or more simply put, the odds of finding intelligent life in the universe. N = The number of civilizations in the Milky Way galaxy whose electromagnetic emissions are detectable

Light Year

1 light year = 9.4605284 × 1015 metres
Astronomy
noun: light year; plural noun: light years; noun: lightyear; plural noun: lightyears
  1. a unit of astronomical distance equivalent to the distance that light travels in one year, which is 9.4607 × 1012 km (nearly 6 million million miles).
    • informal
      a long distance or great amount.
      “the new range puts them light years ahead of the competition”
