Could it be that God truly exist? If God isn’t really existed then luck must be it that earth could actually harbor life! Our planet earth got really lucky in a way that it is not too close to the star (i.e., the sun) and it is not too far from the star either. Other dead solid planets are not so lucky as they located too far from their star or too close to their star, thus their surface would either boil or freeze to the extreme temperatures. Such extreme conditions would prevent life as we know it to exist. Of course, there would always be the exception, but such an exception would be nothing like us humans! Such aliens would not have any semblance to the traits that us humans are familiar with such as how life has existed here on earth.
I guess it’s safe to say that earth is either a miracle from God or it is truly lucky. As our advanced telescopes peer into the endless darkness in space, we have discovered so many solar systems and galaxies. Although we’ve found so many planets and stars and solar systems and galaxies, it seems the more we found the more we instill a belief in ourselves that we’re alone.
Through current scientific methods, we could only guess that there are some planets out there that could harbor life. Perhaps we think such planets are locating in the comfort zone of their solar systems, thus providing the chance that these planets could harbor water. Here on earth, life exists because of water. We’re thinking that water on other planets too may allow life to go through an evolutionary process — developing alien life in the process. Nonetheless, we could only guess and not so sure about our guess until we could deploy some sort of drones, robotics, and satellites to such planets. Even better, we could deploy humans to such planets!
Unfortunately, the solar systems and planets we think that could harbor life are way too far for earth’s current technology to reach. For an example, we could try to launch a rocket fuel vehicle toward Alpha Centauri system. According to Earthsky’s “How Long to Travel to Alpha Centauri?” article, it would take 78,000 years for our current rocket fuel vehicle to reach this space system. According to Wikipedia, Alpha Centauri System is the nearest star system to our solar system which is about 4.37 light years away from our solar system. So, it seems our current space technology is way too slow for space traveling because even the closest solar system would take 78,000 years for a human space vehicle to reach it.
At the moment we could not be sure if life is actually existing anywhere in space. We know for sure though life is existing here in our solar system because the earth is teeming with life. If we want to confirm that life is actually existing elsewhere we have to develop space vehicles that could travel much faster. Preferably, we want to develop space vehicles that could travel near the speed of light. Only then that we could travel to Alpha Centauri space system in 4.37 years or so.
What’s the point of my rant so far? Well, imagine an alien race that could be so advanced that their technology allows them to modify any space’s solar system to the way they like it. Imagine the ramification of such technology! Just imagine each planet and star like a pool ball on a pool table! Imagine a pool table’s holes are the black holes, and if each ball got too close it would fall into a pool’s hole. In reality, if a planet gets sucked into a black hole, it would be destroyed into pieces, I think. Will the black hole spit out these shredded planets and stars later? I don’t know! Nonetheless, the idea is to imagine that space is dangerous and comfortability is very, very rare! So if each pool ball travels too close, each pool ball would collide with one another. In reality, a planet collides with another planet would be on the scale of the doomsday disaster. If a planet collides with a star, it would be the destruction of the planet itself. So, this alien technology that could modify the layout of the solar system would create the condition to harbor water and provide life as we know it.
Now, if we could develop such technology here on earth, we could go out into space and rearrange any solar system to our liking, making other planets to support life so we could have more earthlike planets out there in space. This is one way I think we could colonize space and allow human species to exist much longer than the earth itself. For an example, our earth could be dying someday, and so without such technology, we won’t be able to escape the dying earth — in such a process human species would die along with earth. Instead of dying along with earth, humans should try to come up with technology that pushes planets and stars around to rearrange the solar system to how we like it. It would be so easy to shoot the pool balls around on the pool table, but I guess it would take Godlike effort to do so with pool balls that are as large and as heavy as the planets and stars in space. Furthermore, if the effort takes too long, the solar system itself could be destroyed!
