Extraterrestrial life. The famous ‘habitable’ exoplanets at Gliese 581 system, which encouraged the search for extraterrestrial life, do not really exist! Sad news for those who believe in aliens!
Scientists at the University of Pennsylvania have confirmed that Gliese 581 system has only three planets and none of them are within the “habitable zone”.
Paul Robertson is the author of the study, postdoctoral associated at Penn State, who is affiliated with the Penn State Center for Exoplanets and Habitable Worlds.
In an article published in Science Express, Robertson and his team show that some of the signals from Gliese 581, which were suspected to be from two planets orbiting the star at a distance where water could potentially exist in state liquid, they actually come from events within the star itself.
“This result is interesting because it explains, for the first time, all previous conflicting observations of the intriguing dwarf star Gliese 581, a faint star less massive than our Sun, which is only 20 light years from Earth,” Paul Robertson said.

Extraterrestrial life. Here, some inspirational quotes by Seth Shostak:
Is E.T. out there? Well, I work at the SETI Institute. That’s almost my name. SETI: Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence. In other words, I look for aliens, and when I tell people that at a cocktail party, they usually look at me with a mildly incredulous look on their face. I try to keep my own face somewhat dispassionate.
Each year, thousands of UFOs are sighted and reported, which is an impressive tally of unidentified aerial phenomena. Surveys show that roughly one-third of the populace believes that at least some of this sky show is due to extraterrestrial spacecraft, here to probe our airspace and, when that proves boring, our bodies.
In a movie, it’s often important to have aliens whose gestures and facial expressions can be ‘read’ by humans. And in the days before sophisticated computer animation, most extraterrestrial bit players were guys in rubber suits. Such practical considerations forced Hollywood’s hand when it came to aliens – they look like us for good reasons.
