The only builders of devices that extend the natural senses. The only owners of minds that think and derive the meanings of everythingaround them? And the answer is just possibly: We are not alone! There are othersthat see, touch, feel, smell, and taste. There are others that think andexplore, fight and make peace, or are they completely different? It is allunknown. . . and it is all waiting to be found.
. . The Search Within The early Astronomers believed that the Moon was a another world, witha entire new civilization at heed. The first person that took advantage ofthis well spoken of legend, was a reporter for The New York Sun, whose namewas John Herschel (1792-1871), Herschel was interested in life on otherplanets, so he went to South Africa with decent equipment. But what he sawwas not what he wrote, when he returned to New York he made up a storyabout seeing men with flaps over there eyes to shield them form thebrightness which the Moon gave off. He told of rivers and lakes and greeneverywhere, that story had made the Sun the best-selling newspaper for amonth, but was soon revoked when a famous astronomer noted no such thing aslife because of the “Airlessness” of the Moon.
After a few years, past the first man on the Moon, there was the firstlaunch to Mars to examine the possibility of life. The idea was thatbecause Mars was still in the Sun’s Ecosphere and that it had ice capsmeant that there was or still is water on Mars. When the Crew of the NASAship Titan landed on Mars with 150 lbs. of equipment they began workimmediately, first they analyzed the soil, which was rich in minerals, thenthe atmosphere which was 1. 06 % of the atmosphere of Earth, therefore theatmosphere would leak a dangerously high level of UV rays into the planet.
So Mars was rendered inhabitable for human life and quite possibly the onlylife found on planet like Mars would be low intellect single celled beings. So then we cast out our Inner Solar System as a possible space forextraterrestrial life. The Outer Solar System In the Outer Solar System there is only one “Satellite” that has aatmosphere, the moon Titan of the Planet Jupiter, it mostly made up ofgassy methane and is much denser than Mars atmosphere, it is the onlyplanet in the Solar System with an Atmosphere, it was visualized that Titanhad lakes and oceans with near freezing Methane, in other words it was ahuge lake of lighter fluid. On Jupiter the biggest planet in our SolarSystem it mostly made out of boiling Hydrogen which means that there alittle bit of water on Jupiter, but, taking the size of Jupiter, a littlebit would be alot.
The temperature on Jupiter is cold but the core ofJupiter is near the crust and the heat it gives off would be adequate tosupport life, IF the life was underwater life and during the frigid coldjust dove deeper where it was nearer to the crust. So Jupiter is apossibility, a slim one, but a possibility. Nebular Hypothesis Having gone rather exhaustively through the Solar System, it wouldappear that although there may be life on several worlds other than Earth. In the book “Extraterrestrial Civilizations” by Isaac Isamov. An earlyastronomer by the name of Thomas Wright in 1750 who began counting thestars in the universe in sectors and/or quadrants.
He noticed that as soonas he started to get nearer to the milky way the more stars per quadrantthere were so we came up with a rough chart of the galaxy and derived asystem to count the ammount of stars in the universe. So this gives us the first note. . . Ammount of Stars in the Galaxy = 300,000,000 In Outer Space, there a Nebular Clouds that form all the stars,planetary systems, etc.
In these clusters the planets are formed and thedue to the
