A video on YouTube Published on Jun 20, 2017, went viral calming that NASA is going to announce the evidence of Alien life. The channel called Anonymous Global uploaded the video on YouTube, The channel can be linked to Anonymous Hacking Group.
In the video, Anonymous calm that NASA will soon announce the evidence of Alien life. That sounds interesting, right? However, Anonymous doesn’t appear to have any strong evidence to back up their opinion.
But before you get too excited, let’s check some facts and do some science. The message in the video mainly focuses on the Trappist-1 planetary system, TRAPPIST-1’s planets are Earth-size and in Hehabitable zone. Hehabitable Zone — A place where planets are not far and too close to the parent star, means right environment for liquid water.
The trappist-1 planetary system contains 7 Earth-like planets orbiting an ultra-cool dwarf star named Trappist-1. Two planets in Trappist-1 planetary system are in the habitable zone and scientists believe that these two planets might be containing life.
However, scientists don’t have any evidence that proves that these planets contain life, maybe because trappist-1 is 39.5 light-years far from Earth. Trappist-1 isn’t the only planetary system we have found so far, NASA’s Kepler program discovered more than 4,000 planet candidates.
Surprisingly, 219 exoplanets discovered by Kepler program are in the habitable zone. After finding a huge number of habitable planets scientists still don’t have any evidence of life. Well, Sorry guys we aren’t going to find Alien life any sooner, in our lifetime? maybe yes!
Anonymous is right about one thing — NASA is closer than ever to having the tools to find evidence of alien life. But it doesn’t mean that evidence of Alien life already exists.
However, an American astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson said on Reddit AMA that he doesn’t think we’ll make contact with the extraterrestrial in next 50 years.
Well, sorry anonymous! sadly according to science that’s not gonna happen any sooner. So do you like this story on Aliens and Anonymous? Share your views in comments.
