Re: THE GALAXY

Lucy Muturi (Loise) ·
I really like your topic of study.it really is true that there might be life in some galaxies but yet you need to expound more on the type of life that you really expect.is it life that supports human life or plant life. I think if you also look at the possible outcomes of the life in these galaxies you might also know the duration in which one can survive in those galaxies. for instance the US government is trying to formulate a way of settling their growing population by finding means such...

Re: THE GALAXY

That is one of the most controversial questions in the field of science and especially astronomy and astrobiology. Scientists have struggled with this question for a long time but haven't yet found the answer yet. When delving into such a question it is important first to lay out and expound on all your questions, for example 'is there life in other galaxies apart from the milky way?'. For this question, I think it is important to first know what kind of life we are expecting to find, is it...

Since his action of giving his life for the Hive is the pinnacle of the story, do you have any ideas as to what the situation will be to facilitate this? I know natural disaster, but what will cause him to need to sacrifice his life?

So, first of all, to address the caste system, a contradiction arises. Collectivism and, by extension communism, in its purest form is supposed to function as the complete opposite, at least in Marxism-Leninism. However, the Marxist/Leninist model does not work when talking about Hymenopterans (Wasps, etc.) or most colonial/eusocial animals for that matter. A rather infamous caste system, one that may work for your film, is that of the Chamorro people of Guam, an island in the West Pacific.

Re: Burn - Week 2

I find that the stereotype for conservation groups is a bunch of hippies chaining themselves to trees. I know that that picture is untrue, but its the first thing I think of. I find most people view conservationists as extremists with unrealistic views on what to do, even tho most conversational group have great ideas and plans.

Re: The Galaxy

I love this topic! Space and universe is such an interesting place! Just in talking about the shear size of the universe it can be concluded that somewhere out there, even if it 2 million light years away, there has to be life. Something that might be worth looking into is what does a planet require to support the most basic forms of life? Then from there you can build and expand on that to more complex life forms. http://learn.genetics.utah.edu...obiology/conditions/...

Re: The Galaxy

Hey Jordan, have you considered researching the possibility of microorganisms inhabiting other planets ( a less common view of what life is)? http://www.iflscience.com/spac...-could-survive-mars/

Re: The Galaxy

Hey Jordan, It's really cool how you're looking at it from a very technical level, though maybe you could approach it using philosophy or logical reasoning? A great example of this is the Fermi Paradox. It's a very interesting concept that toys around with the idea of probability and the logic of extraterrestrial life. http://waitbutwhy.com/2014/05/fermi-paradox.html

Hey Jordan I believe that life is a possibility on other planets but I don't know if they are human. While I was doing a little research of my own on galaxies I stumbled upon the question: Would the number of galaxies change with time? and I thought that would be something interesting to look into. I like how detailed and descriptive all your posts are. Here was the link I found the question on. http://www.space.com/25303-how...in-the-universe.html I look forward to your nest post

Re: The Galaxy

Hi Jordan, Am glad about your progressive desire to know whether they is life in another planet. In my own opinion, life so far is known to exist in earth, that is obvious since we are living in planet earth. What has made us exist in earth is the basic necessities that sustain life, things like resources. It is said that there are other beings in other planets, things like aliens. If you believe in their existence, maybe you could also try to find out more about that. Moving a bit far from...

Hi jordan I like your topic and also inquiring question why there is no life in other planets.The research is more educative because you get to know the reasons for why there is know life.I have learnt that Pluto and Haumea takes 310 years for the dwarf planet to make one orbit around the sun.Research more on other dwarf planets and they take how many years. here i found a link; https://www.scientificamerican...in-our-solar-system/ nice research.

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

Hi Inaya, My comment may seem a little pessimistic, so bare with me . Is there a possibility that aliens do not exist at all? Perhaps that is why we have not come into contact with them. Personally, I have not made up my mind on whether or not there are extraterrestrial creatures out there. However, I do agree that it is a little absurd to believe that we are the only living creatures in the entire universe. Still, how are you so sure that there are in fact aliens out there? Maybe talking...

Re: Research Round #1 - What is it that makes life on Earth possible?

Hi Anika, It was very surprising to learn about all the different elements needed to ensure that life can thrive. After reading your post, I wonder whether certain interventions from humans can actually make it possible for more lifeforms to exist on this planet. We know that human activities have caused animals to become extinct but is it possible for humans to make conditions better on Earth so that more animals can evolve? I look forward to reading your next post!

Re: Research Round #1 - What is it that makes life on Earth possible?

Hi Anika! Wow, I never realized that so many factors made life on Earth possible, and that if even one of them were slightly off, Earth would be drastically changed. It could be interesting to look into the work that is being done in developing technology to change a planet to make it hospitable for us. Such as terraforming. Good Luck!

Re: Research Round #1 - What is it that makes life on Earth possible?

WOW Anika! Real interesting stuff going on here, it's so cool to hear about why we humans along with all the other organisms here on earth are capable of surviving and evolving over time. I heard on an episode of Cosmos how our position in the milky way provides life on earth because we live in the "habitable zone" Maybe you should check this out! Good luck

Re: The Galaxy

Hey, Nice job you are doing over there, If life did exist on ice giant Uranus, it wouldn’t be the life that we’re used to. The fact that this giant planet is made mostly of ices, has no solid surface and has an atmosphere with a freezing temperature of -224 degrees Celsius (-371 degrees Fahrenheit), along with a core heated up to 4,700 degrees Celsius (8,492 degrees Fahrenheit), makes it a very inhospitable place to live for any complex life. There is more information about these planet in...

Re: The Galaxy

Hey Jordan, I was reading through an article if life could exist on Uranus and they said that the possibility of life on Uranus is highly unlikely. Due to the following reasons, as you said Uranus is covered in ice, therefore the solid surface would make it extremely hard for organisms to grow. Adding on to what you said about it being cold on Uranus is due to that from the coldness, pressures from the planet would crush life. https://www.universetoday.com This link discusses the possibility...

Re: The Galaxy

Hi Jordan, I really like that you are first looking into the known facts about other planets before venturing into the unknown and answering your question. New discoveries are being made on a daily basis and I am sure that one day we will have enough information to truly know if there are life forms in places other than Earth. Keep up the good work!

Re: The Galaxy

Hi Jordan, Your post was very informative and I realized how little I knew about Uranus. I really like how you are researching planets within our solar system to get a strong understanding of space. This will probably be useful, as you can compare characteristics of planets that can support life in order to determine whether there can be other forms of life within the Milky Way galaxy. Perhaps later, you could look into Kepler-452b. Kepler-452b has is considered one of the most Earth like...

Re: The Galaxy

Hey Jordan, I like the point that Allan made about how Uranus doesn't have a solid surface (or at least a surface similar to earth). I do not think that it would be totally inhospitable though, since organisms always seem to be able to adapt to anything. Maybe you can take a look at life forms that do not require any form of terra. You might need to turn to science fiction for this one, but it would be an interesting exploration.

Really informative research! I'm wondering about whether you found any research pertaining to life on Pluto. My guess it the atmosphere is too thin and cold for any living creatures, but surely water on a planet is a pretty good finding?

Hey Jordan! This research is awesome!! I absolutely love the study of space, and find it so fascinating.

Re: The Galaxy

Hey Jordan, Congratulations on another excellent post! It's wonderful to imagine the possibility of life outside of Earth. Earth is one of the few lucky planets with hospitable environments. If life were to exist outside of our planet, it would most likely be one that can survive in extreme conditions. We have organism like these on Earth, called "extremophiles". I believe it would be beneficial to your research to look into it: https://lco.global/spacebook/what-are-extremophiles/ Goodluck...
