Disclosure becomes ever more interesting. NASA just announced their “discovery” of seven habitable planets circulating around a single star within the Trappist-1 solar system, found by astronomers to be relatively near our own. NASA stated that 3 of the 7 planets were likely targets for the search for alien life, but now, a new study published in Astrophysical Journal Letters is suggesting that all seven planets could be “seeding” each other with alien life that is likely very similar to the life-forms we see here on earth.
Sebastiaan Krijt and his colleagues from the University of Chicago say that material transfer in the form of asteroid or comet dust could easily carry one type of life from one planet to another.
The concept is called litho-transpermia. It is a sub-category of a hypothesis that life was carried all over the Universe from “seeds.” The concept of directed panspermia differs slightly in that it suggests an advanced alien civilization could have intentionally spread the seeds of life from Earth to other planets, or vice versa.
The litho-transpermia phenomenon suggests that the magnitude of life-transfer between planets in Trappist-1 could happen 4 to 5 times faster than it does in our own.
“This discovery could be a significant piece in the puzzle of finding habitable environments, places that are conducive to life,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington, when the Trappist-1 announcement first circulated. He continued by stating, “Answering the question ‘are we alone’ is a top science priority and finding so many planets like these for the first time in the habitable zone is a remarkable step forward toward that goal.”
To wit, NASA and others have been working on some interesting projects, which we could presume were meant to support life in solar systems like Trappist-1, if not elsewhere in our own solar system.
If you aren’t convinced something is up – NASA just announced weeks ago, that they are planning their own humans-on-board mission to Mars. NASA has also revealed that their Webb telescope, considered an important way to analyze space travel plans, completed an important stage in its development.
MIT scientists also just revealed a 3-D printer that can be remotely controlled using robots to build homes and buildings on other planets.
NASA has also said that a “super-potato” plant can grow in Mars-like conditions on other planets, and they’ve just unveiled an inflatable greenhouse that can help feed astronauts on other planets, with the help of researchers from the University of Arizona.
Another clue is in space travel advances (which we are to believe haven’t already been in use for hundreds of years, if not longer). Icarus Interstellar has an ongoing project called Icarus, to see if they can harness gas from planets like Uranus for inter-stellar travel.
And finally, we’re being told about “Death Star” lasers that work just like the ones in the Star Wars movies, just in case we war in space as we do on earth.
The info may be very partial, but it’s coming out in a fast drip. Let’s see if they keep the data coming.
