If aliens exist, their home systems may be totally unlike our own

  If aliens exist, their home systems may be totally unlike our own Earth is the only planet we know of that currently hosts life in any form. Because of that, it’s tempting to assume that, in the search for extraterrestrial life, we should be hunting for solar systems like our own. That might not be true, and a new study suggests that if we hope to find aliens, we should be targeting systems with more than one star.The research, which was published in the Astrophysical Journal, focused on the behavior of Earth-like worlds in binary star systems. The heart of a binary system includes two stars that orbit one another.

Heartbreak has very much been the recurring theme of Sir David Attenborough's Seven Worlds, One Planet – and the finale was no exception. Tonight's episode (December 8) detailed the horrific extent of Africa's ivory trade, with poachers putting animals such as elephants and rhinos at risk of extinction. 

"Elephants have used their great intelligence to help them survive Africas driest times for millennia, but today they face an even greater threat," narrated Attenborough.

Or many more looks.The exoplanet,"HIP41378 f," is the outermost of six observable worlds orbiting the star HIP41378, which is an F-type star roughly 10% hotter than our own sun. Situated some 336 light years from Earth, it's just around the corner from us, galactically speaking, but still far enough that we're not getting there anytime soon without a warp drive or some other new technology ripped from the pages of science fiction.

"It’s thought that as many as 20million elephants once roamed the continent but many have been killed for their tusks. Their ivory used for entirely ornamental purposes. Now just 350,000 elephants remain." Attenborough then appeared alongside two northern white rhinos, revealing that they were the last of their kind and, since they were both female, they'd also be the last ever. 

Scenes also showed a stockpile of tusks, providing an insight into the sheer scale at which animals have been killed for their ivory.

"When they die, and entire sub-species who inhabited the earth for millions of years would have disappeared forever," he said. Once again, the series left viewers heartbroken as they flooded to social media, calling for an end to the stockpiling of ivory.

As if global warming wasn't a big enough issue, there are still multiple countries killing animals for sport/ivory/tusks etc. Shameful."
