Hello List, Last month we saw: http://www.ufoupdateslist.com/2013/jul/m05-005.shtml "Early Galaxies Could Have Planets" which said that an early galaxy 11 billion light years away could have formed planets, because the detected oxygen level means that materials heavier than hydrogen and helium had already formed. Now we see: http://tinyurl.com/ncnev6r "Alien Planets Older than Our Milky Way Galaxy Challenge Accepted Theories" which indicates that a 12.8 billion year-old star actually has planets (well, had 12.8 billion years ago), that the two detected so far are Jupiter-sized, and that the experts are a bit upset about how planets could have formed if heavier materials ('metals') didn't yet exist around the star. However I think a more interesting question is the possibility of life, and its composition, given the probable different ratios of elements at that time. Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
