Finding Habitable Planets

     I see announcements of “Earth-Like” planets announced almost daily.  The problem is that they are not even Earth like at all and they most likely are not habitable.  70% of observable stars are “M” type stars, basically red dwarfs.  It’s easier to find Earth sized planets around red dwarfs by the wobble method because a lower mass star takes less mass to move it a detectable amount.  It’s easier to detect Earth size planets by the transit method if the orbit is in our line of sight because they block a larger percentage of the light than they would on a larger star.

     Our star is a “G” type star, this means it is approximately 4x more massive and 1000 times more luminous than these red dwarf stars.  Earth sized planets are more difficult to find around “G” type stars because the greater mass of the star makes the wobble induced by an Earth size planet smaller and difficult to differentiate from noise.  When detected by the transit method a smaller percentage of the stars light is blocked making it less noticeable.

     The habitable zone of a planet is defined as that distance from it’s parent star where water can exist simultaneously in all three forms, gas, liquid, and solid.  Liquid water seems to be an essential ingredient of life.  Understandably, the habitable zone would be closer to a smaller star.  So many of these “Earth like” planets are orbiting these red dwarfs at distances that might make the year anywhere from around 4 days to 30 days depending on the star.  But Mercury with an orbit of 88 days is not far away from being tidally locked, it is rotating 3x for every 2 orbits.  A planet less than a 30 day orbit from it’s parent star is almost sure to he tidally locked.

     Tidally locked is the limit of the habitable zone.  Even though a suitable temperature range would exist on the terminator, that part of the planet where the sun is half-set, No liquid or solid water would be there because anywhere water could become a vapor, it would be carried to the dark side where it would freeze out and remain forever frozen.  Hence the atmosphere of such a planet would be extremely arid as would the baked land.  So this would limit habitability.

     Another issue with tidally locked stars regarding habitability is that of the planets magnetic field.  Since the planet would be spinning much slower, essentially at one revolution per year, however many days that is, the planet would generate a much weaker magnetic field.  Our planet’s magnetic field protects us from radiation in forms of alpha and beta particles as well as relativistic protons by deflecting these particles to the Earth’s poles.  With a very slow spin the magnetic field may not be strong enough to substantially deflect these forms of radiation.  Also Red Dwarfs are known for being less peaceful and more variable than our star, more violent flares and star-spots, more violent solar radiation.

     It is possible in a red dwarf planet that you could have a much thicker atmosphere that would distribute heat even though the planet was tidally locked, and, if this atmosphere had enough greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane, then that would extend the distance from the red dwarf that is habitable and might extend it beyond the range of tidal locking.

     But for these reasons I don’t get two excited when I hear about the discovery of a “Earth like” planet around a red dwarf star.

     One could speculate about an “Earth like” planet around a “K” type star and this would seem more likely than “M” type.  But I will really get excited when I hear of an Earth like planet around a “G” type star like the Sun, in a similar orbit to Earth.  Well as it happens there are two Super Earth’s around Tau Ceti, a “G” type star  like our Sun.  It is .78% the mass of the Sun and slightly cooler, surface temperature of around 5300k verses 5600k for our Sun.  And it is only 12 light years from Earth.  It may be a viable place for an alien race to originate.



Higgs and ET

     I believe we are on the edge of understanding the technologies that extraterrestrials use to achieve faster than light velocities, near infinite actually.  I believe the same technologies allow them to pass through walls, ceilings, or even planets.

     Much of our technology today is based upon the manipulation of electromagnetic fields.  We’ve been able to create computers, radio and television, a telephone system, electrical motors and generators, and many other devices that have greatly improved our standard of living.

     If we had the ability to manipulate the Higgs field to the same degree we can manipulate the electromagnetic field, we could do everything we observe extraterrestrials doing.

     If one could effectively decouple the Higgs field from matter, it would then take an infinitely small amount of energy to accelerate that matter to infinite velocities.  Since that matter would not have mass, the speed of light, would no longer be an issue, acceleration to infinite speeds instantly and instant deceleration would be trivial.  The right angle turns at 5000 miles per hour that we observe alien craft making would become trivial.

     Material passing through other material would also become trivial, individual atoms moving out of the way would encounter no resistance without mass and the inertia it confers.

     I believe there are some hints as to how to accomplish this available to us and I believe there is some form of coupling between the Higgs field and the electro-magnetic field that can be exploited to manipulate the Higgs.  I believe there are two specific areas where coupling occasionally makes itself apparent, the first is rotating or resonant electromagnetic fields involving high electrostatic potentials, and the second in areas of diamagnetism or opposing magnetic fields.  Why these high voltages are necessary is not something I understand but they seem to be involved in the operation of some space craft and also in the Philadelphia experiment, and the Hutchison Effect.  Diamagnetism and/or opposing magnetic fields seem to be involved both in the ancient description of Vimana in ancient Sanskrit texts, and UFO encounter I had when I was almost ten years old (50 years ago).

Take a look at this video from John Hutchison:

     I think we are at about the same level of understanding of the Higgs field and how we might manipulate it as we were in our understanding of the electromagnetic field 250 years ago.  However, I believe our understanding of the Higgs will progress far more rapidly than the electromagnetic field did both because we have a better theoretical model of the universe or multiverse today than we did 250 years ago and because the Internet allows instant communications world wide and thus allows us to collaborate on an ad-hock scale that was impossible even 30 years ago.


If humans could live on Mars, doesn’t it seem likely that something else is?

Will they tell us what Dawn finds?

    If aliens are in this solar system I would think they would find Ceres interesting. It is large enough to have enough gravity to keep things like structures in place, but light enough to not have fully differentiated which means there are probably heavy useful elements on the surface like gold, uranium, rare earths, and if there are any super heavy natural elements, they would likely be present on the surface as well. In addition leaving Ceres requires very little energy to escape it’s gravity well so it would make a good place to operate from.

Linda Moulton Howe on ET

     Some potentially good MJ-12 documents in this video, some interesting abductee information, but nothing in the way of ET agenda as suggested by the YouTube title.  However, it does become more clear why our government feels a need to keep this information from us.


     I had a dream where I was living on Ceres.  It was not like it is now.  It had an atmosphere and enough gravity for a human being to feel comfortable.  Although there were no bodies of water, we got water from somewhere and in fact I and other humans were farming the planet.  The Sun was dim and small and yet it was adequately warm to be comfortable walking outside.  It was like being in a rural part of America, no cities just dirt roads and farm houses here and there and fields.  The plants grew more slowly with the low light but it was okay, we had lots of space to grow them.

A large crater on Ceres

The real Ceres is much different than the dream Ceres.

     In the dream I was aware that we occupied many other minor planets we had terraformed into livable space.  On some, our sun was just a bright star.  I came there for the same reason people went west across the United States except there were no native beings or life to disrupt.  The only plant life there was what we had brought and propagated, and, other than ourselves, there was no animal life.  I had no memory of the terraforming process, I just knew this was not the natural state of this planet.  It’s gravity was far greater than it would be naturally, enough to hang onto an atmosphere.  It was much warmer than it’s distance from the Sun should have made it.  There must have been some high technology making it so yet I was unaware of it and it was hidden from us.

     The thing that stands out was the incredible sense of freedom there was. A 900 mile planet with only a few thousand human inhabitants.  We had vehicles but nothing high tech, not even by today’s standards.  Given that we started with no biosphere we didn’t have to worry about other life forms.  And with so much space available to so few humans, we could space ourselves out comfortably.

     I think maybe this dream was a wish fulfillment type of dream in as much as on this planet I am feeling the acute lack of freedom, space, resources.  Everything we know about Ceres from the Dawn mission was contradicted by this dream which leads me to believe it is entirely symbolic.
