UFO Buster Radio News – 370: Microlensing Finds Earthlike Planet, Plant 9 Plan…Again, and The Musk Sage Continues
New Earth: Scientists discover alien planet similar to Earth
Despite the differences, astronomers are still optimistic about this new discovery. One intriguing fact about this alien planet is that its orbit is closely similar to that of the Earth.
Astronomers from the University of Canterbury in New Zealand made this astonishing discovery. Even more exciting is how they manage to discover it.
The astronomers did not use traditional methods in discovering this alien planet. Instead, they utilize a new technique which they call microlensing.
Astronomers combine the data they gathered from two facilities. One is from the Gravitational Lensing Experiment in Poland. The other is from the Korea Microlensing Telescope Network, which is a group of instruments based in Australia, Chile, and South Africa.
Is it habitable–According to the astronomers, it is still too early to make assumptions that the alien planet is habitable. First of all, astronomers are still not sure about the details of star the planet orbits. They say that the temperature of the planet’s main star is crucial to the habitability of the planet.
On the other hand, scientists are optimistic about this recent discovery. For one, it is extremely rare to spot planets that are similar to Earth at this great vantage point. The alien planet is 24,722 lightyears away from Earth.
“To have an idea of the rarity of the detection, the time it took to observe the magnification due to the host star was approximately five days, while the planet was detected only during a small five-hour distortion,” explained astronomer Antonio Herrera Martin of the University of Canterbury in New Zealand.
Can We Find Planet 9? Scientists Have a Plan
All the records of Planet 9 have been cut for several years. It was first mentioned back in 2014, but there’s nowhere to be found. Some scientists believe it might be a laser-launched spacecraft.
Edward Witten, who is one of the founders of the M-theory of physics, has made quite the statement: “There are hints of a new object (Planet 9) with a mass of 5-10 M in the external solar system at a distance of 500 [astronomical units]. If it’s a relatively conventional planet, it can be found in telescopic searches. Alternatively, it has been suggested that this frame may be the first black hole (PBH). In this case, normal searches fail.” He then continues with the fact that there’s a possible alternative, and that is to assemble the gravitational field of it with a laser-launched spacecraft. Such a spacecraft could reach planet 9 about ten years after the launch, and, if found, they could report back to Earth in 5 to 10 seconds.
Back in September, a study suggested that Planet 9 was not actually a planet, but it was a black hole. Black holes formed, in theory, after the universe. Scientists were not able to find then, but researchers believe in the importance of the dark matter.
Witten stated that he is not sure if this method will be helpful, or if he could find a mysterious object to work. Building a laser might be too expensive – it might cost about $517 million for a launch system. And the batteries would be $8,000. But these would not be all the costs, the spacecraft itself would cost money. However, with all of that in mind, it might still be possible to launch hundreds or thousands of miniature spacecraft, allowing them to search for Planet 9.
Elon Musk already restarted Tesla production. Now the county says it’s allowed next week.
The electric-car manufacturer brought workers back on Monday, in defiance of county orders.
Alameda County, where Tesla’s main manufacturing plant is located, cleared the electric-car company to start up again next week with safety precautions in place.
But led by chief executive Elon Musk, Tesla already ramped up production earlier this week, one of the most high-profile violations of a local health order amid the coronavirus crisis and raising questions about county enforcement.
Alameda County said late Tuesday that it had approved Tesla’s site-specific plan to reopen its plant in Fremont, Calif., assuming the company follows strict safety guidelines, including social distancing to prevent the spread of covid-19. Tesla can start preparing this week, and can restart work next week, the county said.
The county said that the Fremont Police Department will make sure Tesla is following the agreed-upon safety guidelines.
“We reviewed the plan and held productive discussions today with Tesla’s representatives about their safety and prevention plans, including some additional safety recommendations,” the county’s public health department said in a tweet announcing the decision.
The county did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the plant’s reopening timeline. In a news release, the county said it did not have “any further comment and will not be taking any requests for interviews.”
Tesla did not respond to a request for comment. Fremont Police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques said the department would visit the plant to make sure the safety protocols were being followed. She said the police wouldn’t give specific details about the visit before it happens.
The state of California allowed some business operations to start up again last week, but Bay Area counties have stricter regulations that have not yet been lifted. On Monday, Alameda County told Tesla to stop production, but workers continue to go to work.
Musk on Monday tweeted that officials should arrest him if any enforcement took place. County officials the same day said they were still in negotiations.
