Wow , God sure made alot more of these than he originaly told us.

Cool stuff
 
2003-09-29 01:48:37 PM  
And all with their own Fark.com

Damn, that's a lot of trolls, photoshops and boobies links;)

Where did it say that any of those planets were earth-like? It just stated that a larger number have planets. A large percentage of those planets are probably gas giants, or planets simply unsuitable to live on.

Suddenly, I feel a lot more insignificant than I already did.

I had something to sayd but Quick1 said it all.

We must find these Earth-like planets and bomb them before they bomb us.
 
2003-09-29 03:33:05 PM  
Wow, the article didn't say that at all.

Especially about the Starbucks. I want my money back!
Wait...
 
2003-09-29 03:33:15 PM

And, I'm sure that they all share the same problems that we do.

There's a Joe Millionaire on every Class: M planet.

"With about 100 billion galaxies in the observable universe, our result suggests that there are at least 10 trillion planetary systems in the Universe."

FithColumn thats a lotta bombing, we better get started!

I still like the figure of 70,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars in the visible universe...more stars than there are grains of sand on Earth.

Anyways, by saying that there are at least 10 trillion planetary systems in the universe, he's essentially saying that only 1 in 7 billion stars have a plantary system. This kinda clashes head on with the study saying that planetary systems are plentiful. Just kinda.

Dr Lineweaver is an ARC Senior Research Fellow and Senior Lecturer, School of Physics, UNSW. Daniel Grether is working on a PhD.

Every now and then, I see something that makes me realize that I spend too much time on fark.

Hmmm, a trillion Cindy Crawfords. One of them has to be turned on by an underweight, underpaid computer geek ! Where's my Millenium Falcon ?

2003-09-29 03:40:32 PM  
I wonder when all of them will finally be explored. By us or by others..

Look, a starbucks joke!

Let us laugh!

The last I heard, there were 100 billion galaxies, each with approximately 100 billion stars. That figure puts the number of stars at approximately 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars if my math is correct.

I sense hasty revisions and re-"interpretations" of the bible soon.....

And on the 3'rd day, god made Earth, many many many of them, and it was also good.

Why have trillions...when we can have...billions?

Just think, this was all an intelligent design made exclusively for humans.

Gee I hope they're all as nice as Rigel 7.

Does this mean there are billions and billions of WMD's out there?

Save me, Bush, save me!

Haven't you seen the historical documents of us visiting those planets? The Capt Kirk documentaries were some of my favorite...

Quick1 said it. The tag isn't funny enough to make up for its false statement.

Looks like the defense budget just shot up a few quadrillion dollars.

Revisions of the Bible? Ha! It's science that's wrong! All those suns were probably just dust on the telescope lens, or just part of the mass conspiracy from the people who told us Evolution was real.
 
2003-09-29 03:48:05 PM  
You guys are reading too much into the statement "earth-like". Maybe the article submitter meant "earth-like" as in "round". Or heavy.

The moon is quite earth-like.

Now let's bow our heads and pretend to be serious...
 
2003-09-29 03:54:36 PM  
Sometimes I wonder if anyone reads the actual articles, or just post witty retorts based on the headline. Seriously, nowhere in the article did it say earth-like planets.
 
2003-09-29 03:54:47 PM  
10 trillion planets, and not one has contacted us? We must be losers.

/I heard our solar system smells funny too.

Here I was thinking the end of the universe was in Houston. Where, "I was walking down the street, and saw a starbucks. And then, on the other side of the street, I saw a starbucks. And I stared at one, thinking, when I turn around, there's no way there will be another starbucks behind me, but there was."
