Title: Cheap Astronomy – Dear Cheap Astro #62: Through A Glass, Cheaply
Organization: Cheap Astronomy
Description: Although the Universe probably isn’t an e8 crystal, one day we might see aliens
Is the Universe an e8 crystal?
Well… probably not, if only because most theoretical models rarely survive the journey to be genuine evidence-based theory without some major modifications along the way.
Can we directly image exoplanets and check for life signs?
Well, we can directly image them. There’s an easily found list of directly imaged planets on Wikipedia. Of course, any such images are just small smudgy dots. There are limits on just how much you can magnify an image from light years away.
