After reading the comments, I'd like for some of you guys to try breathing carbon monoxide... you know.. for practice on Gliese.

same sh*t. 20 years is 20 light years. It would be 40 years earth years.
no.... if you travel at or near the speed of light time slows down for you...

if you leave earth on a 10 year round trip into space near the speed of light, when you get back 1000 years will have passed on earth.



another interesting tid-bit... if you get sucked into a black hole... someone viewing you from the outside would see you start to go in, and then you would appear to just stop to them, it would look like you were floating... but in reality you just got crushed into oblivion.

So how about we fix problems on earth instead of worryin about planets that we don't even have the technology or any other means to even get there let alone inhabit it

Earths resources wont last forever, in years to come who knows what technology will be available?

"get there in 20 yrs"
Slight difference in 20 light years, the planet is roughly 200trillion kilometers away(its safe to say it wont be a tourist hotspot).

Id love to know how they are measuring a planets atmosphere from 200trillion kilometers away

No, you breathe a mix of nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, methane, carbon dioxide and trace amounts of other gases.

People this is basic biology & astronomy.

And LMAO @ people saying "if i can't breathe it, it's not habitable" but yet n*ggas forgot about Avatar. Pandora was habitable but we couldn't breathe the air there. Same thing could apply to this.

And I'll add a muthafu*ka so you ignant n*ggas here me...

The same method they used to detect the planet in the first place. The transit method. The color of the light bouncing off of the planet lets you know what elements are in the atmosphere.

Just because they say it's habitable, that doesn't necessarily mean by humans. In fact, they didn't say anything about humans at all. I don't understand why so many people here think everything in the universe needs to breath oxygen. Organisms on that planet could eventually come around and evolve to being able to deal with the gravity and carbon there. Damn, read a book.

: They never say habitable by humans. If there is carbon dioxide plants could prosper. After a while humans could then live from the oxygen produced by plants. We can't get there anyway.

im confused.

so light year isnt the distance light travels in one year. so 20 light years isnt 20 years.

how does that make any sense that a light year isnt a light year. it would take 20 light years to reach that planet. therefore if you were traveling at light speed it would take 20 years to get there. 20 earth years. light doesnt measure itself. like i already said and people try to correct me but until any of you can prove otherwise no extended time on earth is going to pass.

 ra1n said:
lmfao NO.

A light year is a unit of distance -- not time. It's the distance light travels in one year.

& light travels at 186,000 miles every second.

exactly, a light year is how far light travels in a single year, an earth year or 364 1/4 days or whatever. 20 light years is exactly how far light will travel in 20 earth years. so if you were traveling at light speed, the distance light travels in one year, it would take exactly 20 years to get there measured by people on earth. for you though, for you it might be a second.

we dont measure how far light travels from its perspective of time. that is impossible. because they say time comes to a halt. its measured from earth. a light year is an earth year. 20 light years is 20 earth years.

he said 20 light years, 20 earth years. everyone laughs at him. but i stand by him. im not scared to be proven wrong but come on its a light year for that exact reason.

i understand time changes depending on how fast you are going. but that is exactly why we measure light speed from earth because its a constant, our speed. it moves so fast and the universe is so big we measure it in our years.a light year is a year and 20 light years is 20 years.

then another 20 years to come back, only to find that you've been gone for hundreds of years in earth time

i'll still go anyways

The only catch is that it is 20 light years away
yeah, that and the fact, "The carbon dioxide-rich atmosphere would almost certainly not be breathable by humans." This article is misleading. Its not habitable because gravity is two as strong and humans couldnt breathe in the atmosphere. However, I do believe theres is another planet like ours. We are the result of random neurons and ions and whatever else the fu*k happening at the right time, in the right way, and its only possible because our universe allows an almost inifinite number of ways for these things to happen.

what in the world.

you say if you were traveling at the speed of light it would take 20 earth years to get there. dude people traveling at the speed of light dont age, because time stops. 40 years on earth. a person would come back unaged and there sister would be 40 years older.

why do you think someone would measure time while traveling at the speed of light do you realize thats impossible to do because there is no time. the time is measured from earth.


a beam of light would take 20 years to get there. we wouldnt age 900 years by the time it got there. we would only age 20

if you tried to travel for 20 years at the speed of light and you were measuring it idk how you could do the math for how old someone would be on earth. because literally the universe might end by the time 1 year happens for you.

which is another reason why speed of light is pretty much impossible. because how in the hell do you know when to stop.

a light year is the measurement of distance. but its the measurment of distance in an earth year. if you got on a space ship and you were going to travel at light speed you dont set it for 20 years. because that time is earth time. the time doesnt change here. it changes on the ship. one single second on that ship could be a trillion years.

ugh, lol you're not understanding relativity

look up 'time dilation'
explain how light can travel there in 20 years but when someone is traveling at the light speed earth speeds up. it only is perceived to be speed up by the observer traveling at light speed because he has slowed down time to nothing. the light year is still measured from earths perspective.

which is why he didnt age 40 years. its instant for him. he is instantly there and instantly back and its 20 light years each way. now if he tries to travel for a certain amount of time at light speed then yes he is way off of our time and thousands of years will pass on earth just for him to have a second.

explain it if you are right. if its 20 light years away that means a beam of light leaving earth right now will reach it in 20 years, 20 earth years. so if that beam of light is a person why is it 900 years.

exactly he would experience 1 year. but thats not what we are talking about. we are talking light years which are experienced on earth.

all your math did is show that if you were to travel 20 light years say 22.36 the person going that fast is actually only experiencing 1 year. ok so lets say its 44.72 light years round trip. he will age 2 years. we age almost 45


i told you the faster you go the slower time goes. for some reason you think that person will age 40 years but thats just wrong he will age approx 2 by that guys math. we age 40 years. 40 ligth years.

look if you left in a ship going light speed the earth would revolve around the sun so fast you might not even be able to count it. regardless after 20 years we on earth would say you traveled 20 light years. thats the distance you traveled.

the slower time goes for the traveler. time doesnt speed up on earth. we dont age 900 years in 40 light years. we age 40 years. cause thats the exact distance 40 years will take you at light speed. however the person traveling that fast experiences the time dilation he doesnt age for sh*t.

i bet your math is 20 light years for him. but its not measured like that. its how far light will travel in 364 1/4 days. not days at that speed but days on earth.
