Will humans ever come into contact with aliens or travel to another galaxy, and if so, how would it impact humankind?-Research Round 3

If humans came into contact with aliens, how would it impact humankind? Many scientists strongly believe that it is a question of “when” and not “if” -one reason for this is because of the speed of new discorveries -for example, planets outside our solar system: in 2000, scientists knew of 50 “exoplanets”. By 2013, they knew of 850, located in over 800 “planetary systems”. David Weintraub, professor of astronomy, says that number may reach 1 million by 2040 -of the exoplanets discovered so...Read More...

Research Round 2-Will humans ever come into contact with aliens or travel to other galaxies, and if so how will it impact humankind?

In this round of research, I will be looking at alien life! Planets in the solar system that may sustain life -NASA’s Kepler and K2 telescope looking for potentially habitable worlds -examination of nearer, brighter stars could lead to the discovery of an Earth-sized sustainable planets -James Webb may find an “outsized” version of our planet - in mid 2020s, he Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope could “zero in on distant planet’s reflected light” -goal: to detect signs of oxygen, water...Read More...

Research Round 1 - Inquiry Question: Will humans ever come into contact with aliens or travel to another galaxy, if they exist, and how will it impact humankind?

For my first round of research, I will be investigating the universe in general (size, measurements, experiments, etc.) as well as the galaxies we know of. Lastly, I will look at if and how it would be possible to travel to another galaxy. The Universe http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20160610-it-took-centuries-but-we-now-know-the-size-of-the-universe Our galaxy -the Milky Way, approx. 100,000 to 150,000 light years across (1 light year = 9.5 trillion km) -and that’s just one galaxy in the...Read More...

Inquiry Project Project Plan-Will humans ever come into contact with aliens or travel to another galaxy, if they exist, and how will it impact humankind?

This is my Project Plan for my inquiry question, which is "Will humans ever come into contact with aliens or travel to another galaxy, if they exist, and how will it impact humankind?" This is something that has interested me for a long time as I find space very intriguing. I have so many questions about space, and this narrows it down into a “researchable” topic. In my first round of research, I am planning to collect information about the universe (size, galaxies, information we already...Read More...
