FIRST EVER PICTURE OF A MULTIPLANETARY SYSTEM LIKE OUR OWN RELEASED
Such observations could be key for finding planets like our own – which could support life
Scientists have released the first ever picture of a solar system like our own – a Sun-like star, orbited by multiple exoplanets.
It is the first time that astronomers have been able to directly see a planetary system with more than one planet, with more than one world. Images of exoplanets of any kind are incredibly rare, but the new picture represents a breakthrough in the discovery of other planets like our own
“This discovery is a snapshot of an environment that is very similar to our Solar System, but at a much earlier stage of its evolution,” said Alexander Bohn, a PhD student at Leiden University in the Netherlands who led the new research, in a statement.
Is ET out there?

Why isn't there quarter as much focus and fundings towards Biogerontology and the likes?
These places even with latest Nasa developments would take atleast 20000 years to reach.
Let's try and support researchers like Aubrey De Grey, SENS and co in hopes that we might live to see that day of regular speedy interplanetary journeys.
Big dream but it's possible.
