EXOPLANETS: THE NEW FRONTIER
Above is the first photo from NASA recently taken of an exoplanet. The red dot is an exoplanet 55 times the size of earth. The bright star is the one the exoplanet revolves around.
First exoplanet was confirmed by NASA in 1995.
As Celestina an Ambassador from our planet, I will be your guide through the galaxies and universe onward to PLANETXXI. As I earlier mentioned, we are an exoplanet located in the circumstellar habitable zone (CHZ). Exoplanets are worlds orbiting stars and are real in the universe. We are not imaginary, as NASA will confirm. In addition, a recent study completed at The Carl Sagan Institute, Cornell University, found that exoplanets are the most probable planet to have life. While we are watching them, it is possible that extraterrestrials on exoplanets are watching us! However, it will take your imagination to create a whole new world on our planet. Unlike Earth, we shine and get our light from sunlike stars. We do not revolve around the sun like other planets in your solar system. We are also not in the Milk Way. Instead, our planet is located in the Goldilocks Galaxy.
Exoplanets are called hidden planets because we are not easily seen and hidden behind stars. Astronomers have confirmed that there are more than 4,000 exoplanets orbiting distant stars in the universe, with at least 1,000 more waiting to be confirmed. Only a few exoplanets have names. We are newly discovered in the universe and have named our own PLANETXXI. We plan to create a new world using much of Sir Thomas More’s model of Utopia. Our planet, hopefully, will also be created 100% eco- friendly. PLANETXXI will be the first planetary ecocity of the future.
PLANETXXI FOOTSTEPS TO THE FUTURE
You might recall the amazing student, Wolf Cukier, age 17, of Scarsdale N.Y. had wrapped up his Junior year of high school when he headed off to intern at NASA’S Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. While there, and only on his third day of internship, he discovered a new planet orbiting two stars. The exoplanet is now known as TOI 1338b and is nearly seven times as large as earth and has two stars. Cukier, couldn’t name the planet, but his brother offered a better sobriquet: Wolftopia. Two years earlier, when he interned at NASA, he was working on a Goldilocks Zone project. The Goddard Space Flight Center was named after another great futurist and pioneer, Robert H. Goddard, who in 1926 successfully launched the first liquid-fueled rocket ushering in an era of space flight innovation. Wolf is following in his footsteps into the future at the Goddard Space Flight Center and leaving an imprint of his own.
“Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere”
Carl Sagan Famed American Astronomer
Observers Daily Newsletter recently reported that, “Researcher’s led by Lisa Kalteneggar, an Astronomy professor at Cornell and director at the university’s Carl Sagan Institute, identified 1,004 stars with Earth in direct sight that could contain habitable planets. That means, if any of those planets host extraterrestrial life, they could see us to.” These alien planets are confirmed by astronomers and NASA to be exoplanets where life could exist.
This information is imperative for you to know that there really is or could be life now or soon on other planets. Maybe one day in the new future, you will be traveling to Mars and beyond. Many have talked about even living on Mars. Now it is time to get started and get down to work. The following questions are meant to test your tolerance of living and creating an eco- friendly society and City of the Future on PLANETXXI. Hopefully, the questions will also ignite your imagination and creativity inspiring you to design and develop an eco-friendly world.
