Yeah, well the popularity of the first thread was unexpected. And, alien life is a favored topic to me.

It's probably going to turn out to not have life, but it's still an interesting article. :)

Firstly, the word 'could' in the first paragraph struck me. Second, it's 20.5 light years away. That would be a very large distance. In fact, where they've seen it is where it was 20.5 years ago. Light is funny like that.

Future research delving further into free will could lead to more advanced robots, scientists added.
Ahh, so they're finally going to build reploids? :D

The result, joked neurobiologist Björn Brembs from the Free University Berlin, could be "world robot domination."
It sure as heck would be :D

I thought dolphins had free will as well. But they have bigger brains. Fruit flies must have a LOT of brain capacity devoted to free thinkers.

Also, this is not good news for Mr. Onion.

that new planet wont have life..it's to far away from the sun so it'd be to cold for lifeforms...unless they like cold

And that distant planet was the right distance from its own star- That's why they think it has life on it.

I know but I just thought of that..
I just watched the video and I learned it rotates around it's own dwarf star

Re: The Interesting News Article Thread!!!!
 
I strongly would like to think that the planet has life on it. And, I am a free-will believer. If humans did not have free will, than there would always be wars, or never be wars. Also, the time-article thread is a roller coaster ride; they say "There might be a time machine in the future", then they say "There will probably never be a time machine."

EDIT: Check my new sig! Despite it being a Coolguy quote from this thread....

Did they tell you about it before he actually did it? Did you say to them how stupid and dangerous it'd be?
