"What Alien Life on Other Planets Would Look Like": do we care that they look like us?



What Alien Life on Other Planets Would Look Like” from “Be Amazed” (12 minutes).


Well, not like Mark Zuckerberg.

Two of the most interesting ideas were “energy beings” inside stars, formed by nuclear molecules created by the strong force.  I think there was a horror film in the 1950s where lightning is alive.

Another idea is that carbon dioxide becomes a super-critical fluid at high pressure and could support earth-like (deep inside volcanoes) bacteria on dry planets.

The film thinks creatures could fly in the atmospheres of gas giants or brown dwarfs.
  
Convergent evolution suggests that a planet really similar to Earth could develop similar creatures.
     
So could your super Clark Kent teen alien really come from another planet through a worm hole?
  
But do we really care what he looks like if this is possible?  We want him to be a better version of us.    
You can still theorize that angels are aliens, or that Jesus was one. 

Note: the was an announcement of the discovery of a cold dry planet around Barnard's Star, 6 light years away, a red dwarf.
