Lets back up a bit

It is hard to imagine that as you are reading this, you are indeed traveling at 63,000 miles around the Sun but it is true.  We should be dizzy but of course there are things that keep us from dizziness, our relation to Earth which is steady, the Atmosphere that enclosed us and keeps us safe and of course respectable distance of other planets and moons that although changing but at controllable speed.  Yes you look up the friendly sky and Orion is moving at slow pace...to eventually disappear for months that we can not see it...from one particular location at least...
But the Mystery of life goes on...suffice is to say that what we know of the Universe is not controversial but at least understandable...It is however progressing and always expanding.  New fact has come up to change our understanding...scientists had noted an object the size of a "moon" beyond Pluto...the object was visible for a while than it  disappeared.   But after a "while", the object came back then left again in sight...than it dawned on them that the object was rotating around some planet beyond pluto.  while Earth is turning around the Sun on an orbit that takes it 365 days to complete, This planet could take 1 million years to complete its orbit?  Is this true?  I guess we are lucky to have seen it...Suffice is to say that this is challenging our current understanding of the "Universe"...
Are there more planets beyond...I strongly believe so...until we intersect with another sun's planets and there are billions of suns in the Universe...In our own Galaxy-The Milky way, there are millions of suns...
That brings up the second question
Around each sun, there are planets
and if there are suns it means they produce energy for their planets and there must be planets that enjoy the same circumstances and condition as Earth,  meaning there must be life somewhere else as true as we exist!   However, don't expect them yet...we do not have the mean to reach anybody...don't look for life in some clusters...It is there in the Universe but so far away we can't reach it yet...
let's however reorient our search, find a sun and its planets, then locate the planet with the closest similarity with conditions on Earth and voila !   Here are our distant cousins!   watch out, they may not like us....Distance keeps us apart...you may die before reaching there with our current means...

The Universe secret is kept by the current distance to anything...the sun to Earth is 93,000,000 Miles
but the distance to some portion of Orion is 3-4 times that.   It takes 8 minutes for the sun ray to reach us, and close to half an our for Orion to become Visible...Ladies and gentlemen, you will die before reaching any of those worlds...
