  1. Those responding like I'm somehow doubting or challenging accepted conclusions of the life cycle of a star, youre misinterpreting what I'm saying here. Im not a scientist myself , but I have a layman understanding from Curiosity Stream 🙂. There are stars that make ours look the size of a grain of sand. They will will super nova. Ours is a medium class one in size and temperature, that wont super nova, but will instead get bloated, then then wind up a white dwarf. I'm not denying any of this. What I'm saying is...our star may have ONE huge factor that similar ones they have observed lacked-an orbiting planet harboring INTELLIGENT LIFE 🙂. You can observe similar class stars and THEIR outcomes. What you cannot do is predict the limits of human intelligence and ingenuity.
  2. You've enlightened me that I neglected to follow your rules 🙂! Thanks for notifying me of that 😂!
  3. The sun will get 10% brighter, all water will be gone. The dying sun with become a red giant and grow in size to the point where it will consume the earth. This the common prediction of our future, the end of us. But do you believe that the end of our story has already been written in stone? I don't...what I believe is there will be a line of great scientists in the future that will make us look like cavemen 🙂. Here's the thing, they haven't been born yet. Maybe not for several, dozens of generations from now. Heck, their families are probably living in huts right now 🙂. They could reverse engineer the sun, they could ignite a NEW one. They could discover a way to live WITHOUT a sun, by artificial means. This is all contingent upon a lunatic dictator not sparking a nuclear war in the future, that could wipe out civilization. So on not on board with this gloomy outcome from today's science. Look how far we've come in just the last 60-70 years!
  4. How are the camera lenses kept free of dust? The picture is crystal clear.
  5. Does it have the ability to overturn some of those rocks? Not the meteor rocks, the native ones? To see what under it? Most critters are found that way 🙂
  6. Interested...everything I've seen so far, from past landings, suggest a cold, barren, lifeless, solar wind swept landscape. Perhaps the seas and lakes formulated JUST as Mars was exiting the "Goldilocks Zone". Therefore life was unable to get cooking like earth, as the planet went into deep freeze.
  7. ...that the building blocks of life are EVERYWHERE in the universe. In the dark void. In the solar winds. Perhaps in suspended animation. It just so happened that the other 8 planets are dead worlds. Whereas the seeds of life couldnt take hold on those desolate worlds, Earth was the one where it could flourish. That this same process is going on in other exo-solar systems? Its possibly nothing special about Earth, and that the seeds of life are all over space, the other 8 planets being unsuitable.
  8. I just watched a "Rise of the Continents" episode on Curiositystream? The Afrika episode? These episodes surprisingly veer off from geological events into paleontology and evolution :). According to the host, 100M years ago, as Pangea was splitting up, volcanic mountains rose up underwater. This displaced the water, resulting in a 300 meter rise in sea levels. There was mass flooding, and the host credits this with leading to the evolution of marine mammals. The Whale, at least.
  9. Thanks. Would you say that they all came from a common ancestor, or, by coincidence, different branches of these mammals took to the seas?
  10. I look at the variety. Whales, seals, orcas, manatees...then the semi-aquatics like the hippos, etc. Can assume that at one time in earth's history, there was more water around, than there already is? Forcing these branches of mammals into the water? Or was it by choice, to get food, or safety from predators?
