la formation de la terre et gliese 581c et presque la même;mais la question que je pose est : esque les matière de son atmosphère aide une plante de vivre le plus normalement.

Great artists' impression of Gliese, but of course, until we (humans) manage to get there, someday, we're just guessing :)

the National Space Agency of Ukraine will transmission is due to arrive in the Gliese 581 system's vicinity by the year 2029, then the earliest possible arrival for a response, should there be one, would be in 2049.



That's all.

GL 581 C, GL 581 D and GL 581 G. All this planets are like same. GL 581 C is 20.3 light years, GL 581 D is 20 light years and GL 581 G is 20.5 light years.

Constellation Libra.

120,000,000,000,000 miles.

Very professional, well done! I wonder what the planet's orbital velocity is compared with Earth's, since its year and star's mass are so short. Another thought: Perhaps our descendents will walk the planet, bioengineered for the gravity/pressure. Hail Science!

We need to invent the hyperdrive so we can see what this planet really looks like. But until then, I'll be very happy to look at your interpretation of it.

This is amazing. Absolutely amazing. Everything you have here is completely legitimate, and unlike some other people, you don't try to make anything up to fill in the blanks. Great Job.

I have high hopes for Gliese 581C...

the planet is completely and utterly perfect. Besides the fact that it dose not have a way of protecting its self. what i mean by protecting is is need a cloud formation that can cool it down without harming every thing. the cloud formation would be huge and look like an extremely large hurricane. it would cover a large portion of the planets equator. ect...

If it's tide-locked it'll likely look a lot different. I went for the best possible scenario ;)

okay but the next time you make a planet like this, you should try to make a giant cyclone

With a mass at least 5.36 times that of the Earth, it is classified as a super-Earth, a category which incorporates planets exceeding the mass of Earth but smaller than 10 Earth masses.
Assuming that the true mass is the minimum mass, the radius may be calculated using various models. For example, if Gliese 581 c is a rocky planet with a large iron core, it should have a radius approximately 50% larger than that of Earth, according to Udry's team (the discoverers).

*Tears of joooyyyyy*

C looks so beautiful in this ;-;
I love the color of the water, which must mean the sky is medium-bluish. If it does have a breathable atmosphere, I'm SO going there when it's possible. I'm gonna say 2075 so I'll be 80.

hay you wat to know some thinabou this place

well if not ill say it any way in the year 2025 we will be getting a mesage back fron this place because in 2005 nasa sent a mesage there hopeng o fn intel life and if there is we should get a mesage bace by then so just wait oh also you might actualy want to goto gliese 581 d because it is a much more likly canidate for having life than c dose so than yeah goo d not c

I'm glad you like it.
I'm hoping that someday soon I'll get some more inspiration to create some planets.

Is it intelligent?
Is it microscopic?
Is there no life on Gliese 581 c?

The thought of all this makes me excited.

There might be more dicovered planets that we think is more suitable.

Nice post!Honestly

How did you do this?

Hiya.

I made the planet in Photoshop. No technique in particular though.
I started with the blue marble photo of earth that is seen in the same pic.
I increased its size to be 1.5 times my starting point.
It was a combination of freehand art and a whole lot of photo manipulation.

awesome. I hope there's life there after all. It's a shame I won't live long enough to know.

Not likely. 581-C was found to JUST too close and miss the Goldilocks Zone by a couple million kilometers. A runaway greenhouse like Venus is no place for ET to raise his/her children.

But there's hope. The two other planets show promise with 581-D that's very well within the the G-Zone, and the slightly farther-out 581-E that's the closest in size and mass to Earth that we've seen in any extrasolar planet.

The quest for extrasolar life continues as it should. It's not a question of if, but a question of when.
