    How many Earth twins are out there? Hundreds possibly

    NASA’s recent discovery of Kepler-186f, the first habitable Earth-sized planet is big news in humankind’s long search for extraterrestrial life.

    A universe full of exoplanets: Thanks to the Kepler Space Telescope, which was launched in 2009 to hunt planets across the universe, we’ve managed to find around 1800 exoplanets so far, many of which have been discovered in just the last year or so.

    Cosmos: A Personal Voyage (Adrian Malone, 1980)

    Or maybe they have a completely different form of consciousness and lives but still are conscious and self-aware of themselves and the external world 

    It is usually thought that alien life must analogous to “human” life on earth, but even referring to them as “them” is a naive generalization of life on earth, which thrives through individual organisms. Alien life can be nothing like that on earth. And even if it is slightly similar, aliens may have no concept of person, group, interaction, they may as well have no concept of concept itself or no imagination or mind’s eye, or as you said have a different (or no) conscious experience of the world or of themselves (introspection is arguably possible for only one species on earth). This is simply because all of the aforementioned is very dependent on the functions of our brains which themselves evolved in a social and highly interactive, auditory, and visual environment, a setting that shouldn’t necessary exist on every habitable planet…

Ectopia cordis

It’s a congenital malformation in which the heart is abnormally located either partially or totally outside of the thorax. The ectopic heart can be found along a spectrum of anatomical locations, including the neck, chest, or abdomen. In most cases, the heart protrudes outside the chest through a split sternum

    A small study of casual marijuana smokers has turned up evidence of changes in the brain, a possible sign of trouble ahead, researchers say. The young adults who volunteered for the study were not dependent on pot, nor did they show any marijuana-related problems.
