I thought this was pretty neat. Pretty dense planet wise compared to here.

I have no idea how life would evolve on tidally locked planets. There is no day or night time, although I suppose if the animals/aliens/creatures lived underground or on the dark side then that would be similar to some life here.

Youd need a dynamic atmosphere to even out the temperature planet wide for that.

If another planet isn't dynamic and active it can't evolve or support life. Solitary

So are the other two stars in the system relevant to anything happening here, or are they just kind of hanging there off in the distance as in the photographic representation?

I would give up half of my remaining lifespan for a warp ship that could get me to these star systems with Earth-like planets. I want to explore them and the thought that they are out there and I will more than likely never see them is just depressing.

Today's discovery is very cool indeed.  They also just discovered some hot super earths within the last six hours.  I believe that there is certainly animal life around one in one million stars and maybe a civilization around one in one billion stars.  It is crazy for people to think that we are the only ones in this vast universe.  But then again, those people don't accept evolution either.

Interesting article on life evolving on tidally locked planets

This planet is very near to the star and it's blue.

You realise that these planets are most likely just barren rocks, right? I mean; Venus and Mars are in the habitable zone, and look how habitable those are.

I saw this yesterday and thought it was very cool. The first planet outside our system that we have been able to determine the color. The raining liquid glass part was pretty interesting too.

Earth is just one example of how life evolved. And another ghost with 0 posts. WTF?

Even if they do have bacterial life... it's still comparable to exploring Mars. One big, mostly barren piece of rock. While it might be fascinating to explore, you'd probably tire of them pretty quickly.

I'm also not sure whether it's feasible for things that do not need oxygen to be spawned like that, although I've  not really looked into the topic. Don't they still need certain circumstances to first appear? Like an atmosphere and electric discharges and such? (Granted I'm not very schooled in a-biogenesis unfortunately.)
