Scientists Say There’s Another Earth Populated By Super-Advanced Beings

Scientists Say There’s Another Earth Populated By Super-Advanced Beings
World

Most people who believe that aliens exist do so because space is just too damn big for there to be only one planet with living things on it. 

Astronomers at the U.K’s University of Hertfordshire have confirmed the validity of this theory after discovering at least five planets that orbit the closest star outside our solar system.

The Tau Ceti star has a temperature and brightness fairly comparable to the sun. At just 12 lightyears away from here, we can actually see this star from earth. The U.K astronomers’ study reports that Tau Ceti’s motion has changed its orbit, which could be due to gravitational pulls from the planets that surround it. Gravity + Sun + Nearby Planets = Aliens!

Here’s the catch. Three of these five planets are way too close to this star to harbor life. Yet two of them are just about the same distance from Tau Ceti that earth is from the sun, far away enough to harbor water, life, and livable temperatures.

Tau Ceti is also twice as old as the sun, meaning that these beings would be much more advanced than humans. So yeah, we’d be fucked in the event of a…you know…

Don’t be scared everyone. They still aren’t positive about the existence of gravity on these planets, as many other factors could have contributed to Tau Ceti’s movements. Keep dreaming, though. We’re sure everybody at Herdforshire is.
