I first learned about the exciting discovery of an Earth-sized planet orbiting within the "habitable zone" of Gliese 581 from CBC's Internet news article '1st Habitable Distant Planet Found' that was posted on Wednesday, September 29 at 5:49 p.m. ET. http://tinyurl.com/244yp2r Although Gliese is unlike the two Sun-like stars of the Zeta Reticuli star system which we have good reasons to believe is the home of the ETs that Betty and Barney Hill encountered back in September 1961 on their way home from vacation in Canada, this star with its 6 known planets is twice as close to us than Zeta Reticuli! Below is the comment I posted on the CBC website after I read their news story. ------ 1stToWalkOnMars wrote: Posted 2010/09/30 at 1:32 AM ET At 20 light years away, although it is not possible for humans using 20th century science and technology to send an unmanned space probe to any of the 6 (or more?) planets orbiting Gliese 581 that can get there in our lifetime, "astronauts" from Earth may have already colonized these and many other habitable exoplanets in our corner of the Milky Way, thanks to Nature. Since science claims that life on Earth goes back for many billions of years; that Earth was bombarded by asteroids over this period and that certain living things (extremophiles) can survive the extreme conditions of interstellar space, it is very likely that any life we discover on these Earth-like exoplanets originated from Earth - the only place in the universe we know where life exists. When life bearing rocks from Earth are blasted off its surface at "escape velocity" speeds (about 5 miles per second or higher), it would take Nature as little as a few tens of thousands of years to seed the planets orbiting Gliese 581 with life from Earth and not just once but many times over the past few billion years. If we do discover life on this first habitable planet, we should not be too surprised to learn that these ETs and us have common ancestors - and possibly even the same Creator! ------ Research into advanced propulsion technologies and anti-gravity studies seem to have gone underground since about the middle of the 20th century with hardly anything exciting about this subject matter in the public domain. One recent notable exception that shows us humans a way to reach the stars in our lifetime is the book 'Field Propulsion by Control of Gravity: Theory and Experiments' written by Stoyan Sarg, a space scientist colleague at York University. It is the only book with actual experiments that replicate the flight characteristics of "flying saucers" but also explains how they fly through space from our investigations into alien science and technology. Stoyan's book is available through amazon.com. Nick Balaskas Listen to 'Strange Days...
