A Second Home for Humankind by Elitanna A Second Home for Humankind by Elitanna
Another moon in the Vasunian Sunatta System.

Earth like planets and moons are probably not rare in the cosmos. Even if 1/500 solar systems in our galaxy have a habitable somewhat earth like world around them, that would mean that within 50 light years, it is likely that there would be at least a good 4 or 5 earth like worlds. There are about 2000 stars within 50 light years, 133 you can see with naked eye.

Check out phl.upr.edu/press-releases/aho… to see the current potential habitable worlds.

Contact me on deviantart or etang@cca.edu if you want to use commercially.

File Size is about 50 megapixels so you may need another browser besides Google Chrome to download.
Google Chrome does work for some, but not for me personally.

I used Nasa Visible Earth to greatly enhance my painting

Minor technical problem. Both planets have atmosphere which means they are rather close to Earth mass. The distance between them is much less than distance between Earth and Moon. Water tides alone would make system uninhabitable. But there would be also much worse tides, planets themselves would be deformed just during rotation around axis. There are very good reasons why they couldn't form with this mass at this distance. For same reasons pictures with 3-4 huge celestial bodies are unrealistic, systems like that simply can't exist.

By sized of hand to be more specific, sized of a clenched fist from 2-3 feet away.

Actually, the smaller one is less than the mass of Mars which is 12% Earth mass, the Makers are terraforming it while protecting it's atmosphere with an invisible "shield" in orbit above it's atmosphere so stellar winds don't erode it. And second of all, there was a time when the moon was much closer to the Earth, yet it was able to support some form of life. Primitive of course.  If you were looking at the moon in this picture standing on the planet over there, this moon would appear about the size of your hand. That is not close enough for tidal forces to heat the planet up so much that it becomes too hot. Though you do not want to be near any large body of water like a large lake or ocean since you will drown in the tides.

Makers and invisible shield - well, I like magic too :). From description it looks like it supposed to be able to exist by itself. Regarding "sized of a clenched fist". As far as I understand the idea of the picture is that this is something observable by naked eye, not a view from some very remote point via telescope. In this case from the surface of lower planet the upper one would be even closer than in the picture, it would basically dominate the sky. If you wanted to cover it with hand you would have to put them over your eyes. "Moon was closer to Earth" - well, Moon mass is ~1/80th of Earth Mass and it never was that close.

This is a very nice picture, I like it a lot. I thought that these ideas could be interesting for you to consider as you seem to like draw groups of planets. No offense intended.

I would also like to add that it's not just the parent planet that is responsible for tidal flexing. IO for example experiences a molten phase because of the tug - of - war between the planet and it's moons which are largely responsible for IOs volcanos. If you have just one body in the sky and it's orbit is not excessively eccentric, or in a tug of war with other moons, the "comfort zone' could exist closer than it would have with eccentric orbits.

I read about life around white dwarf stars, and planets could be stable as close in as an orbital period of just a few hours without being destroyed by volcanic activity. In addition, the larger the moon/planet, the more stable it would be against turning into other versions of OI. The moon and planet in the picture are fairly large.


Also TY for response :)

It is theoretically possible to make things invisible so you won't need magic. Michio kaku made statements that he was wrong, it does not violate the laws of optics. In fact we make things invisible on a daily bases. It is also theoretically possible to make things so transparent you can hardly see it. There are reasons why they want a shield that is so transparent you can hardly see it. One thing we are not interested in creating ice ages.

To clarify, if the lower "planet" which is the moon were to be about Mercury's mass, that larger planet would be somewhere between Mars and Earth's. Mercury 1/4-1/3ds of Earth's radius. The upper planet is about 70% of Earth's radius.  So if you were to stand on the lower planet, It would be about 2-3 clenched fists 3 feet away as radius.

Incredible space art, man, I love this stuff. :D Did you actually paint this? The texture on that moon is amazingly intricate.

I've always hoped that quasi-Earthlike planets are even more common than that, so that STL starships and probes could reach them more easily- at 10% C, we could reach Alpha C in 50 yrs. but it would take 250 yrs. to reach a planet located 25 lyrs. away. Wouldn't matter so much if superluminal spaceships were possible, though, like EE "Doc" Smith's old Triplanetary and Lensman stories where solar systems are assumed to be incredibly rare per planet formation theories of the time, so a faster-than-light starship can cross the galaxy before locating a single one. Somehow, I suspect it would be even more frustrating to have access to the galaxy and find hardly any planets to visit than it is to know that Earthlike planets are probably not rare at all, but that it is just hard to reach them. With access to the entire galaxy, 1/500 solar systems having inhabitable planets would make them seem as common as dirt. XD

this is real? ... and just beacause we inhabit our earth in a certain way using carbon for life it doesn't mean another being can't be with conditions different to ours. Not saying that you were saying that but life is probably everywhere where there is light.
I don't think of life as physical at all times though i am talking about eternal spirit.
