NASA Cannabis Planet Discovered. Pot Planet Full Of Weed Revealed
Most powerful marijuana in the universe.
What leafy green plant covers this newly discovered planet that has the ability to create peace, cure panic attacks while simultaneously causing a snack pack attack?
A news story hit social media claiming NASA announced they had discovered a planet that is completely covered with marijuana.
The planet known as X637z-43 who forever shall be named planet pot, was discovered using NASA’s Kepler Satellite and may be one of the few potentially habitable planets out there.
#1 Has science discovered plant life or the potential of any kind of life on other planets?
#2 How will a planet covered in marijuana help the space program?
#3 Has the planet already sent alien lifeforms to Earth in a super secret plot to take over?
Take me to your weed… er…
According to the story NASA experts have detected sufficient levels of oxygen and nitrogen to support not only plant life, but human life as well.
In 2014 using the Kepler Space Telescope astronomers discovered 715 new planets that orbit 305 stars, with 4 being earth like but up to 2 ½ x’s smaller.
They did discover an earth-size planet that was orbiting a star in what they deem the “habitable zone.”
Which means its in a range of distance from a star where liquid water may begin to pool on the surface of an orbiting planet.
But according to Elisa Quintana of the SETI institute at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California.
“We know of just one planet where life exists – Earth.”
When scientists search for life outside of our solar system they are essentially trying to find planets who’s characteristics mimic that of earth.
In 2015 NASA’s budgets towards space flight programs as well as earth science programs were cut by over $500 million.
NASA feels that the presence of pot on other planets might excite younger people and help to generate more interest in space exploration, which would mean more funding for our space programs like NASA
““We always think young people aren’t interested by anything but it’s false. Young people love smoking pot,” explains David Charbonneau, astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
He went on to say,
“Chlorophyll concentration analyses generated by Kepler lead us to believe that the level of THC in these marijuana plants is 3000% higher than the plants found on Earth. If that doesn’t motivate young people to explore space, I don’t know what will,”
In 2014 former Canadian Primer Minister Paul Hellyer stated in an interview on Russian TV that aliens are already here living with us but won’t share their advanced technologies “until we change our warring and polluting ways.”
There you go, aliens are peace loving tree huggers…goddamn hippies.
So is this real or a hoax?
During my research I did learn a couple of things.
There really is a David Charbonneau who really is an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center of Astrophysics and he does work on the The Kepler Mission. But I can’t find one reputable source for his quotes on planet pot.
There is at least one earth-size planet in the habitable-zone, but only one planet that we know of that actually sustains life and we currently live on it.
The websites that are reporting the story contain discrepancies when cross referenced with each other. They claim different names for the planet that was discovered and different results from the chlorophyll concentration analyses.
And ultimately, the original site that announced the story posts this “disclaimer” at the top of their site.
Unfortunately for a large portion of the population who spends most of its time watching adult swim while consuming large amounts of pizza the story is pure satire.
