We can build again, when our own world is destroyed by global warming and the oil companies or whatever.
For the first time, astronomers looking beyond our solar system have spotted water vapor in the atmosphere of a planet where temperatures might also be just right for life.
Exoplanet K2-18b is a super-Earth that’s twice the size of our planet, with eight times the mass. It’s also wet, or at least the skies around it are. Researchers found evidence of water vapor when they took data captured by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope in 2016 and 2017 and ran it through an open-source algorithm they developed to analyze distant planets. They published their findings Wednesday in the journal Nature.
Water vapor has been found in the atmospheres of other planets, but this is the first time such moisture has been spotted at a planet in the habitable zone of its star, where temperatures could be tolerable, if not downright pleasant.
More data is needed to determine what kind of cloud coverage the planet has, how much water is present in the atmosphere and if the stuff is actually forming big bodies of water on the planet’s surface like here on Earth.
“It’s entirely possible this is a water world,” said co-author Giovanna Tinetti, a professor of astrophysics at University College London. But she cautioned that it’s too early to confirm the presence of some sort of surface ocean.
It’s estimated that temperatures on the planet could be between about minus 100 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 73 Celsius) and 150 Fahrenheit (66 Celsius). That’s a big range, of course, but it’s not too far off from the conditions we see here on Earth.
The first thing we’re going to need to do is send in a team to set up dilation stations across the entire surface of the planet, so that the trannies can be certain that wherever they are, they can dilate their neo-vaginas.
Then we’re going to need to set up free needle dispensaries.
Then we’re going to have to set up ramps for cripples.
We’re going to need EBT card refill stations.
Liquor stores with bulletproof glass.
And fried chicken joints with bulletproof glass.
We’re going to need mosques.
And of course we’re going to need streets for gay sex parades.
Once we have all that set up then maybe – just maybe – we’ll be able to start talking about building a civilization on another planet.
