An exoplanet or extrasolar planet is a planet that orbits a star other than the Sun. The first scientific detection of an exoplanet was in 1988. However, the first confirmed detection came in 1992; since then, and as of 1 April 2017, there have been 3,607 exoplanets discovered in 2,701 planetary systems and 610 multiple planetary systems confirmed.
was the first rocky planet to be found within the habitable zone – the region around the host star where the temperature is right for liquid water. This planet is also very close in size to Earth. Even though we may not find out what’s going on at the surface of this planet anytime soon, it’s a strong reminder of why new technologies are being developed that will enable scientists to get a closer look at distant worlds.
2- CoRoT 7b
The first super-Earth identified as a rocky exoplanet, this planet proved that worlds like the Earth were indeed possible and that the search for potentially habitable worlds (rocky planets in the habitable zone) might be fruitful.
A planet in the habitable zone and a possible water-world planet unlike any seen in our solar system.
4- Kepler 10-b
Kepler’s first rocky planet discovery is a scorched, Earth-size world that scientists believe may have a lava ocean on its surface.
5- 55 Cancri e
55 Cancri e is a toasty world that rushes around its star every 18 hours. It orbits so closely – about 25 times closer than Mercury is to our sun – that it is tidally locked with one face forever blisters under the heat of its sun. The planet is proposed to have a rocky core surrounded by a layer of water in a “supercritical” state, where it is both liquid and gas, and then the whole planet is thought to be topped by a blanket of steam.
6- 51 Pegasi b
This giant planet, which is about half the mass of Jupiter and orbits its star every four days, was the first confirmed exoplanet around a sun-like star, a discovery that launched a whole new field of exploration.
7- Kepler-444 system
The oldest known planetary system has five terrestrial-sized planets, all in orbital resonance. This weird group showed that solar systems have formed and lived in our galaxy for nearly its entire existence.
8- PSR B1257+12 system
Discovered in 1992 and 1994, the planets that orbit pulsar PSR B1257+12 are not only the smallest planetary bodies known to exist outside our solar system, they also orbit a neutron star. These weird “pulsar planets” demonstrated that planets exist in all environments in the galaxy – even around the remnants of an exploded star.
9- HD 80606 b
This world has the most eccentric orbit, and as one scientist put it, “wears its heart on its sleeve,” with storms, rotation, atmospheric heating, and a crazy orbit all plainly visible.
Considered to be the first cold super Earth, this exoplanet began to form a Jupiter-like core of rock and ice, but couldn’t grow fast enough in size. Its final mass is five times that of Earth. The planet’s nickname is Hoth, after a planet from Star War
in the final memory with Garrus’s dad talking to Ryder’s dad, it’s because of Garrus believing Shepard and experiencing everything in ME1, that Garrus’s dad believes him and pushes that intel throughout Palaven’s and the Council’s higher echelons.
IT’S BECAUSE OF WHO SHEPARD WAS, BECAUSE OF WHO GARRUS WAS, THAT THE INITIATIVE GOT IT’S FINAL BOOST AND RUSH OUT THE DOOR TO AVOID THE REAPERS
EVEN THOUGH THE MILKY WAY EVENTUALLY DEFEATED THE REAPERS, THE MILKY WAY LIVED ON BECAUSE OF SHAKARIAN
Me today: I think I’m finally over being salty about Bioware blatantly not giving a shit about their mlm fans and those who play as mlm ryder - I’ve bought the game already so I should probably try and enjoy it whilst voicing my concerns to the devs in a constructive manner
So I haven’t seen this mentioned anywhere, but our bodies will literally eat themselves if they don’t get enough nutrients to power themselves. Think about what will happen when an alien finds out about this and how they’ll react to it. (This is my first contribution to this tag, I hope you like it)
They said it was impossible for human Jesse to survive, but he still did. We were on a mission scouting CP12 when the cave mouth caved in and left human Jesse trapped. The other humans tried everything in their power do for days to try and get human Jesse out from the cave. When the 22nd day rolled around almost all hope was lost, but a large commotion was coming from the mouth of the cave. Curiosity took over Oskwauh’s 12 limbs and dragged him over there. To his astonishment human Jesse was found alive, but not in a good condition. Medics were everywhere, scrambling about seemingly dumbfounded by this situation except one. Oskwauh knew this medic by the name of human James and he was as calm as if somebody hadn’t just been found alive after perceived dead. Human James was barking orders at the others to transport human Jesse to the ship immediately and give him a hydroponic nutrient bag. Oskwauh turned yellow in worry. He knew if anyone could survive this, it would be a human and after working alongside human Jesse for such along time Oskwauh knew he could make it.
Later that day Oskwauh approached human James about the incident with many questions in his 2 minds.
“Human James I have a couple questions about what happened today”
“Ask away Oskwauh, I am aware that this is a strange situation”
“How is it even possible that this happened. Why did human Jesse look so ‘thin’?”
Human James seemed to contemplate this for a second before answering.
“Well when human don’t get enough nutrients the brain limits the production and energy use of our body. But if we are yet to get our nutrition levels back up our brain will make the decision for our body to eat ourselves, but once half our muscle mass has been 'eaten’ we die”
Oskwauh started at Human James. Was this another one of their practical jokes. Oskwauh turned purple in fear. There was no way humans ate themselves right? He had to be lying. This wasn’t real. Humans really are weird.
Shepard: Girl of the 21st Century (Released January 29, 1999 on VHS)
The crossover that no one wanted, Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century and Mass Effect. Anything space related I immediately think of Mass Effect, so when I watched Zenon with my friend last semester, well…
Nunvil is like a really light beer to Alteans so they have a naturally high tolerancy
Allura doesnt drink that mess so shes the designated Castle Driver
“ Coran, that junk is like rat poison even to Alteans i don’t believe this was a good idea”
Coran is the Altean equivalent to a vodka aunt, and he drinks nunvil like water and doesnt feel a thing
he gossips with aliens across the universe over a few bottles
The “sociable drunk”
shiro doesnt let her have any at first but she sneaks a drink while hes not looking
Forgets shes on an alien planet and talks to everybody
Swears like a sailor even more than usual and tells wild stories that have even the bravest aliens in the galaxy quaking in their boats
Pidge, to a group of sketchy alien pirates: so there i was, 3rd grade, dragging her by the pigtails around the playground! and the bitch still had the nerve to say smth so i socked her right in the mouth n pulled the rubber bands from her braces!! yea Susie didn mess with the Holts after that! The aliens, visibly terrified: *scoot away*
Shes also a dancing drunk but once she and Keith started jumping on tables and stools Shiro Shut it Down
Pidge, hopping on a stool: “ykno what fuck it hEY EVERYONE ANOTHER ROUND FOR THE WHOLE BAR ON THE PALADINS OF VOLTRON!!!!!!” Shiro, slamming a hand over her mouth: “nOPE no its not we’re not doing that”
The “emotional drunk”
Also known as the ‘relentless crier about eveything’
“Lance listen ur like my best friend in the whole world idk what id do without u ur a good man come over here, pidge, u too ykno ur so brave for cutting ur hair and sneaking into the garrison matts a lucky dude if i had a lil sister id wish she was half as amazing as u u guys r like the brother n sister i never had, u too keith and shiros like my chill uncle of smth n i love u all so much i jus”
The “came out to have a good time and is bitter he can’t actually get drunk” drunk
Its not fair he offered they do this! he was honestly ready to go to a space bar and get space wasted but he still hates the taste of Nunvil and after 4 drinks he feels nothing like is the universe out to get him or what!!
Doesn’t flirt with any of the aliens that come on to him bc they’re drunk so he just politely declines all night but he takes pride in knowing he looks good under drunk goggles
After 6 rounds he gives up and settles on drinking something fruity from a thin glass and taking embarrassing pictures of Keith
Even if he can’t get drunk he can still have a good time
First of all, he’s a huge light weight. Even more than Pidge n shes half his body mass jot that down
All it takes is like 2 rounds during a competition with Lance and hes Out
Somehow switches between the “goofy” drunk and the “always dtf (down to fight)” drunk in 4 seconds flats
Keith: Lance is really pretty…. Anyone: really? I don’t see it- Keith, holding a knife to their throat: what the fuck does that mean
Laughs at everything. A lot. No one has heard this much laughter come from Keith not even Shiro and hes known the kid for years
Thinks he can fight the sun and he will
All Shiro hears is “Hunk hold my cup” and hes up in 3 seconds to stop him
He somehow starts a fight over space cryptids with some alien and nope they have to leave their whole planet has declared war on them gdi keith
Is reluctant at first but eventually he’s tired of watching everyone so he takes one (1) drink
He regrets it to this day
The “venting” drunk
He goes off on vents about the Garrison for so long he doesnt even realize the alien he was talking to has already left
“I’m like an elephant, ok? if i walk into a room, its like, woah hes in there”
On the ride home, Allura is grumpy, Coran is unaffected, Shiro is already developing the Worst Hangover in the Universe, Pidge is knocked out on the kitchen counter, Keith is passed out on Hunk’s chest while he snores like an animal and Lance is just now feeling tipsy.
Fact: While rumors that asexuals are capable of asexual reproduction (creating twice the volume with the same amount of mass) are still being confirmed, it is a known fact that Pansexuals at any time are able to parallel this by shoving all of their mass into half the volume. This can be repeated infinitely to create a black hole. Many Pansexuals sacrifice themselves towards the end of their lives to help create wormholes to connect the universe together. This, among other reasons, is why Pansexuals are currently the rulers of the universe.
