Super Earth Aliens Could Be Trapped On Their Home Planet


The Drake equation, prepared by astrophysicist Frank Drake in 1961, find out the point that why we still have to come in contact with an extraterrestrial civilization.

The equation have different perspectives of opinions, along with stars that have planets orbiting them, the rate of star formation, and the some of planets that could really grow and support life.

In a new article published in the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society, detected by universe today for the first timeElio Quiroga RodrĂ­guez, a professor at the Universidad del Atlántico Medio in Spain, claims that Drake's equation didn't go too far.

He propose there's a possibility that water or other liquid-dwelling aliens, as well as civilizations on super-Earths, may actually stuck on their planets due to "physical limitations," even if they desired to leave —

A interesting new wrinkle to one of the main questions at the soul of our search for intelligent extraterrestrial life.

In his article, Quiroga claimed the Drake equation should think two additional possibilities.

At one side, civilizations on planets greater than Earth would require more escape velocities to surmount their planet's mighty gravity.

If it were too high, extraterrestrials "would not be capable to depart from the planet by using any possible amount of fuel, nor would a viable rocket structure withstand the pressures included in the process, at least with the stuff we know," Quiroga wrote.

On the other hand, the scientists thinks "fishbowl worlds" where the impetus to expand long-distance communication technologies is very low since messages already can proceed over vast distances without having to be amplified with complex tech in a fluid environment.

For such an underwater species, "interaction between individuals could be practicable without the requirement of communication devices," Quiroga claimed. "Such a civilization would not be 'communicative' and would not be examined in the Drake equation."

In brief, it's an description to an already considerable puzzle facing us today. Could there really be woefully unaware aliens alive inside massive oceans, or annoyed civilizations fighting to break past the immense gravitational well of their planet?

It's a puzzle certainly worth to think about.
