The endless possibilities of what is out there, also arouses the curiosity and interest of the ordinary individual, most likely due to the many sci-fi movies through the years. Since astronomers have confirmed the presence of planets beyond our solar system, referred to as exoplanets, humanity has always wondered how many are habitable. We are now closer to finding out the answer.
In Christopher Nolan’s epic 2014 science fiction film Interstellar, a rogue splinter group of scientists constituting the collapsed remnants of NASA hatch a plan to save Earth from environmental collapse by searching for potentially habitable planets in a distant galaxy. They get there by traveling through a wormhole and using the gravitational slingshot velocity of a massive black hole.
New research contends that the Milky Way alone is flush with billions of potentially habitable planets — and that’s just one sliver of the universe. The fascinating question of whether we are alone in the universe basically comes down to some intricate mathematical calculations. A new study combines exoplanet data from the Kepler Space Telescope…..Read more
