So, when I have a good day at work it’s usually because a couple of more people than usual looked at our company’s advertisements. When the people at NASA have a good day at work, it’s because they’ve discovered carbon dioxide in the atmosphere of a planet orbiting another star. Eh, we’ll call it a draw.
This find “is an important step along the trail of finding the chemical biotracers of extraterrestrial life as we know it.” While the planet, which is about the size of Jupiter, is too hot for life, “the Hubble observations are a proof-of-concept demonstration that the basic chemistry for life can be measured on planets orbiting other stars.”
This story is good news for the loners out there who feel they’ll just never fit in in this world of ours. Well, guess what everybody who thinks they will never belong on this Earth – there might just be hope for you after all! So, keep your heads up! And stop wearing all black, you’re scaring the children.
