Humans will not migrate to other planets, Nobel victor says

  • Swiss astrophysicist Didier Queloz

Talking in London on Tuesday, he mentioned: "I can't imagine we're the one dwelling entity within the universe".

Didier Queloz, who as a PhD pupil found the primary planet outdoors our photo voltaic system, mentioned he's "convinced" by the existence of extraterrestrial life.

"This year's Nobel Prize in Physics rewards new understanding of the universe's structure and history, and the first discovery of a planet orbiting a solar-type star outside our solar system", tweeted the Nobel committee.

"The chemistry that led to life has to happen elsewhere".

However, he said it's realistic that a machine capable of detecting biochemical activity on distant planets could be built within 30 years.

Queloz split this year's Nobel for physics with colleague and fellow Swiss Professor Michel Mayor. As evidence of his influence on the field, Queloz now has more than 100 astronomical objects named after him.

Mayor said it was up to the "next generation" to answer the question of whether there is life on other planets.

Portugal 3-0 Luxembourg: Cristiano Ronaldo moves one goal away from 700
The 34-year-old is now just 15 goals behind the all-time global record of 109 held by former Iran striker Ali Daei . Ronaldo could become only the 6th person to reach 700 career goals when Portugal play Ukraine on Monday.

"It was a very old question which was debated by philosophers: are there other worlds in the Universe?", Mayor said."We look for planets which are the closest (to us), which could resemble Earth".

"We have 200 billion stars out there in our galaxy alone, so I like our chances", Kaltenegger said. "We have discovered that every fifth star has a planet that could be just like our own".

They were honored for finding an exoplanet that orbits a sun-like star.

"The next step is to collect enough light from these small planets in the habitable zone to figure out if there are signs of life in their atmosphere", she said. "The only means to do it would be to develop techniques that would enable us to discover life in space", he explained.

We don't know whether life does or does not exist there.

They shared the prize along with James Peebles, from Princeton University in New Jersey, who was honoured "for theoretical discoveries in physical cosmology".
