It is a planet with short seasons and the same temp all the time? Maybe it will be inhabited by a bunch of hot californian men!!! The work week could be a few hours or your could have some vacation every day- I like it!!
From what I've read, this planet never sees darkness, at least, from what they've seen so far, the angle says such.
How fascinating. I have always been interested in astronomy but I didn't have the desire to go to school to learn about it. It will probably not happen in my life but I do wonder what kind of life is supported on that planet, how it differs from our own, are they more advanced or are they still in the caveman-type stage? There are only a few million other questions I could ask but those are the big ones.
What makes me wonder is why is it that it seems only rednecks and loonies are abducted
I am the same way. It fascinates me, but I could not stand to go to school for years for such.
There may or may not be life on that planet, because it doesn't rotate on its axis like Earth. Life may have evolved to some extent, but I'd venture a guess it's not very advanced.
We're one tiny speck of life in our own galaxy, the Milky Way. Our galaxy alone boasts 100 BILLION stars, with billions of planets.
There are hundreds of billions of galaxies in the universe, each with their billions upon billions of stars and planets. To think that life doesn't exist somewhere outside our own solar system is foolish to the extreme.
Will sentient life be human? Why should it be? It may not even be carbon based, as is every form of life here on Earth.
The possibilities fascinate me, and we've only just begun.
I didn't think about that, that it wouldn't have much of a rotation, if any, if it was in constant daylight. Very good observation! It does make me wonder how life would be supported in constant daylight.
I was thinking about that earlier actually, about how just because we know
what life is here on earth, does not mean that we know everything about how life can be supported. Who knows what life could be sustained by on other planets, if we haven't experienced or known of it before?

earlier and it got to me thinking, we
cannot live on the other known planets, etc. because we only know how life here on earth survives. We cannot limit the entire universe to what we know, because...well, you can't keep the unknown in a box.
