I believe it's time we head over there and free the **** out of that planet.

what if the creatures there are x7 times that of earth's?

If the Super-Earths mass will be 7-n times greater than it is on Plain-Earth that means our bodies would be 7-n times heavier. BUT! If science ever created life-support systems for that kind of gravity then people could actually live there.

Imagine having the first kid at the Super-Earth who is totally accustomed to the gravity and is far more powerful than any adult living there at that period of time. Then someone will have another kid which would make him the rival of kid #1. And soon you will have a whole new civilization of super-homosapiens that are at least some what of a 1/1 000 000 part of a Saiyan.

Am I making any sense here? Because it really sounds ******* awesome in my head.

A lot of people are asking questions about how we could get there and people are saying it's impossible or it would take forever and so on, so I figured I'd just make one comment instead of replying to a bunch.

I encourage anybody has actually interested, and who has a working knowledge of space/time to look up the Alcubierre Warp Drive. Essentially, the biggest threat to interstellar travel is that, according to our current understanding of physics, it is impossible for any object to exceed the speed of light. The Alcubierre drive allows for travel at a proposed 10C, 10 times the speed of light, while at the same time allowing the ship/drive/inhabitants to not be destroyed by infinite mass.

This is achieved by warping space-time both in front of and behind the ship, forming a sort of bubble that moves through space at 10 times the speed of light, while everything inside the bubble remains, in the eyes of the laws of physics, stationary, or relatively so.

Obviously this can be kind of hard to wrap your head around without a little prior knowledge, but that's alright, learning is good :)

Also, there are several known issues with the concept, but answers are slowly being found for them. For example, when the drive was first theorized and written up, it was calculated that it would require a mass the size of Jupiter to power this thing; now, 17 years later, we've gotten that mass down to something weighing only a few tons.

Sidenote for anyone that cares and doesn't know: NASA actually has a team dedicated to advancing our knowledge of warp technology and theory, and they take it very seriously.

The two most important issues with this drive are 1: If cosmic radiation is able to penetrate the bubble (they don't know yet if it could), then it would kill passengers almost instantly. Faster you go, the more radiation you hit/second. 2: The bubble would gather particles at it's front, and when it stops, those particles would fly off at planet-destroying speeds (woo!).

Being born too late to explore the Earth and too early to explore space this picture just about sums up my feelings on this topic.

did anyone ever stop to think that since it is more than 7 times earths mass, that gravity would be multiplied by 7? i mean 1 lb turns to 7+ so 200 lbs would be roughly 1400 lbs... im no scientist but thats just how i would see it. i could be wrong

Density is also a factor, as well as radius. It's not just mass.

Alright, check it people. I know some people have mentioned this, and to them I tip my hat, but I'll just go ahead and break this down again. So, gravity would be an issue, but not so much as you might think. The force of gravity on the planet's surface is equal to its mass times the gravitational constant, but then divided by the square of its radius, ie, Gm/r^2. This planet is roughly 7x Earth's mass, but then, if it were terrestrial, I'm guessing it would have a radius a little under twice that of Earth's, so lets go with 1.7 because reasons. Plug all that in, and we get a gravitational force equal to about 2.4 times that of Earth. Of course, we have no idea what its made of so it might just be uninhabitable. That picture up there is an artist's rendition if it was terrestrial.

TL;DR Gravity would be more like two and a half times. But it might not matter 'cause it could just be a great big ball of toxic ******** .

What would be the effect of gravity on it to us, though, since it's mass is seven times that of regular Earth.

But.. But what if someone else lives there already? Maybe they won't like us and tell us to go away... Maybe we will never find a new home.

7 times the mass of the earth? The last thing we need is more room for idiots to reproduce.
