Alien Planets Badge

This beautiful artwork is called Alien Planets.
Alien planets in space with asteroids and stunning light from the alien sun.
Mysterious voyage into the deepest depths of space will reveal wonders beyond your imagination.

According to Wikipedia if we want to find an planet that has life on it the we would need to use a mathematical equation called the Drake equation.
The Drake equation is a mathematical equation used to estimate the number of detectable extraterrestrial civilizations in the Milky Way galaxy. It is used in the field of the Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence (SETI). The equation was devised in 1961 by Frank Drake, Emeritus Professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
The most important part of all of this is that the planet would most likely have to be similar to our own planet. Our planet is neither to far from the sun so that it is too cold and not to close to the sun for it to be too hot. This is called the Goldilocks zone, after the fairy tale in which Goldilocks had a bowl of porridge that was just right.
If we were to find this planet then we may indeed find life but having said that would it be evolved enough for it to have anything that we would consider intelligence?
In a universe as massive as the one we inhabit then the likelyhood of there being life on other planets other than our own is good. However, the universe is indeed mind boggling big and finding life near to us may be very difficult.
So if we did find life on another planet, and it was near enough for a visit, would we be able to communicate with them? They maybe so different to us that communicating or learning from one another might be impossible.
Still, it is an exciting idea. If they were near us and they were similar enough to us that we could talk it would be more than amazing. They would have evolved and devolped very differently to us and may have learnt many things we can't even imagine.

If you love the idea of alien life on other planets and searching the deepest depths of space to find it then you'll love having artwork to help express and celebrate your journey.
