    Just what humanity need. Another planet to over populate, pollute and destroy.

    How many stars are called Gliese? Anyway, 49 light-years, who knows? I'm still hoping that one day we get to Gliese 581, which is about 20 light-years away and has 2 planets, 581c and 591d that are potentially in it's habitable zone. If I recall correctly, there was a message sent there that should reach the system by 2030.....wonder if we'll ever get a response?

    Betcha' its Nebulon.

    Now if they have humanoid life forms and they have culture and developed toys and had Transformers, would they be considered G1?

    Would they retcon them in and we would get new number 1's or 0 issues?

    The possibilities of all this make my head want to explode

    Or according to the article, it may just be a giant gas planet. Misleadining article/thread title is misleading.

    "Could" be a planet that MAY support habitation and/or native life. Of course, it "Could" also be a gas giant made of space acid. Hard to tell from 50 light years away.

    Say, since saturn (or jupiter, i forget which) is a giant hydrogen gas planet, can't we make a spark there that will create another star in our system?

    No, because what makes a star is fusion, not combustion. To achieve that, there's a critical mass/gravity that's required for the star, so there's enough pressure and heat for fusion to occur. Jupiter's mass is insufficient for this fusion to occur, so it's a gas giant instead of a star. Saturn is also a gas giant, but it's even smaller than Jupiter. Basically, it's comparing what goes on in an incendiary explosive to what goes on in a nuclear/thermonuclear explosive.

    Also if you put a spark on Jupiter it probably wouldn't ignite because there would be insufficient oxygen to sustain combustion. Keep in mind a giant comet plowed into Jupiter in our lifetimes, and that didn't ignite it.
