Life on Earth is premature: Experts claim it could be ten TRILLION years before aliens evolve elsewhere in the universe

  • Researchers say lifetime of a star is crucial to formation of planet and life
  • High mass stars will die long before life can evolve on nearby planet
  • Those with low mass can survive for 10 trillion yrs, allowing enough time
  • But, they say low mass stars may create too hazardous an environment

Scientists have long searched for proof of alien life, yet it remains unknown if other beings have ever existed outside of our planet, or if life on Earth is truly alone in the universe.

Now, researchers say Earthlings may just have arrived early.

On a cosmic timeline, a new study argues that life on Earth may be premature, and say other potentially habitable worlds could one day produce life given enough time – roughly 10 trillion years.

Researchers say future studies of nearby red dwarf stars could help to determine whether life on Earth is premature, or if low-mass stars create an environment too harsh for future life. An artist's impression of an exoplanet and a red dwarf is pictured

  1. Or it could be that we are the life forms that are the most basic in the universe, and everything else has evolved, that’s why earth is being visited by others like a kind of cosmic museum,…..;)

  2. which so called experts say this crock of sh*t, say something cogent when you get a brain.. just in this one galaxy there are about 40 billion earth like planets within goldilocks’ zones. intelligent alien life will be everywhere, that is a given
