Why are cons still complaining about the government shut down?

They should be cheering!!!

C'mon cons! Cheer what you worked so hard for! After all, it truly is a smaller government, right?

(CNN)-- Our everyday concerns -- what's for dinner, what to update on Facebook -- seem small when we consider that there's a whole universe out there where other life may exist.

Astronomers now are upping that likelihood, announcing that they've identified a star system with up to seven planets -- three of which could potentially host life -- 22 light-years away.

The likelihood that conditions could support life on at least one of those planets, given that there are three terrestrial-mass planets in the habitable zone of one system, is "tremendous," according to at least one scientist. The "habitable zone" is the area near a star in which a planet can theoretically hold liquid water. In our own solar system, Venus is close to the inner edge of potential habitability, while Mars is closer to the outer edge.

The discovery is the largest number of "habitable zone" planets ever found within a single system, said Guillem Anglada-Escude of the University of Gottingen, Germany, who led the team of astronomers.

The findings were published Wednesday in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics.

The findings are only the latest in a recent string of identifications of planets that may host life.

"As soon as our telescopes and data analysis tools have become sophisticated enough to find them, habitable planets are popping up everywhere," said Sara Seager, professor of planetary science at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who was not involved in the study. "It's simply exhilarating to know that potentially habitable planets are ubiquitous."

So, tell us about what changes Reid wanted to the funding bills on his desk now that he won't allow onto the Senate floor for a vote.
We know what they don't agree on. Tell us why those things the Democrats say they are for are being held up by the Democrats.
Why are the Democrats shutting down the government?

What are these planets like?

The three planets orbit a star called Gliese 667C, part of the triple-star system Gliese 667. They are between four and eight times the mass of the Earth, making them "super-Earths."

If you were standing on any of the potentially habitable planets in this system, that sun would appear as a bright red star. The other two stars in the system "would look like a very bright pair of stars providing as much illumination as the full moon on Earth," Anglada-Escude said.

The planets are likely either rocky or water worlds, meaning they're entirely covered in water. These particular planets also appear to be "tidally locked," meaning the same side of a planet is always facing a star. That means one side of the planet always gets light and the other hemisphere is always in darkness.

"With three terrestrial-mass planets in the habitable zone, the likelihood of one of them actually being habitable is tremendous," Seager said.

The system also likely consists of two hot planets further in and two cooler planets orbiting further out, although scientists are less certain that the seventh planet exists.

Scientists determined these characteristics of the star system using new observations gathered from the W. M. Keck Observatory and the Magellan Telescope, with existing data from the European Southern Observatory's HARPS instrument in Chile.

Before, scientists had determined that the star Gliese 667C had three planets with one that could be a candidate for life.

The Gliese 667C star is about one-third the mass of our sun with about 2% of its luminosity, meaning it is much fainter. But all three of the potentially habitable planets, and their neighbors in their solar system, lie within the equivalent of the orbit of Mercury, meaning they are much closer to the host star than planets in our solar system.

If they orbited our sun, the Gliese 667C planets' surfaces evaporate and burn. But they may be habitable because their sun is so much smaller and dimmer.

"It's an extreme scaled down version of the solar system," Anglada-Escude said.

ObamaKare is just another Democrat Marxist welfare program to make the half of the country paying all the taxes pay more so Obama's base that won't make responsible choices and become productive in the economy can have the same things as those who make the sacrifices and work.

Copied from someone else, but it is a good Cliff Note about Obama's foreign policy.

Obama is hunting down al Qaeda in Somalia and Libya to send them to training camps in Jordan to become 'freedom fighters' in Syria.

Just like the shutdown. The Democrats are relishing in it. Even though they're the ones who created the damage.
Think of a spoiled younger sibling always getting away with everything because the older and more responsible sibling is always blamed for not keeping their younger brat out of trouble.
The majority of Americans are like permissive parents who never want to blame their precious little brat.
