Found! First Earth-Size Planet That Could Potentially Support Life
Astronomers have discovered a planet about the size of Earth,
orbiting its star in the zone where oceans of liquid water would be possible.

From Space.com

A study of the newly-found planet indicates it could have an Earth-like atmosphere and water at its surface. The planet Kepler-186f is the fifth planet of the star Kepler-186, 490 light-years away.

The planet has 1.11 times the Earth’s mass. Its radius is 1.1 times that of Earth. Kepler-186f orbits at 32.5 million miles (52.4 million kilometers) from its parent star. Its year is 130 Earth days. 

The planet orbits Kepler-186, an M-type dwarf star less than half as massive as the sun. Because the star is cooler than the sun, the planet receives solar energy less intense than that received by Mars in our solar system, despite the fact that Kepler-186f orbits much closer to its star.

guys this isn’t just some science jerk-offery. This is legitimately the first confirmed exoplanet that fulfils all of NASA’s main prerequisites, same mass, same density, rocky, right zone in terms of heat, it may even have an atmosphere.

Soon we’re launching a satellite code named “Star Shade”, which although it sounds badass is literal- it’s a massive unfurling shade that will allow a powerful telescope to TAKE PHOTOS of these goddamn planets, no doubt this one will be first on the list, to see what they look like.

PHOTOS, EVERYBODY. PHOTOS.

I say we name it in honour of Carl Sagan who first brought serious investigation into finding exoplanets in a time where people didn’t even believe they existed, yet.

Half of the women I spoke to said , would he admit that’s he’s bit of a sexist, misogynistic — he sees women only in sexual terms?  (x)

But what those women don’t seem to be stopping to think about is, he’s willing to admit that he might not realise something he says or does is sexist because the only viewpoint he’s lived is that of a “relatively privileged” white male. He’s not sitting there going “no, no, I’m not sexist, I just believe in traditional values and the family unit” like so many sexist misogynists are (I’m looking at you, Tony Abbot). You have to respect that about him. Equally, you have to respect that he’s willing to admit, apologise and contemplate, whether it be about potential sexism, mistakes in his past, whatever. Those three things are more than a whole lot of white males are willing to do, relatively privileged or otherwise.

He’s probably thinking “Oh fuck! I forgot to get rid of this. Maybe if I cross my hands and look really serious no one will notice.”

Super edgy pastel graphics telling you how not to be an asshole!

Just beat up trans people who are oppressed with a bat just do it! Look a cool punk with a bat, you’re bullying cis people? They’re gonna beat you up! That’ll teach you to be trans.

Also a dog! and the no true scotsman fallacy!

It’s cute and has a bloody mouth from biting people who hate men! Take that women! Haha FEMINISM!

I dub this series “coddling men who can’t seem to understand that they’re part of a harmful system and refuse to do anything to distance themselves from said system”

LET’S NOT LOOK AT THE RELATIONS OF POWER COMPOSING SOCIETY AND HOW OUR BEHAVIOURS CAN AND CANNOT FEED INTO THOSE SUBORDINATING PROCESSES WHICH MURDER THOUSANDS OF QUEER PEOPLE EVERY YEAH, INSTEAD LET’S LOOK AT OUR INDIVIDUAL BEHAVIOUR AND HOW WE MIGHT LOOK MEAN
