Ever wondered if a gas giant might harbor life? intelligent life even? here's your chance to find out!



yup, here it is. it is extremely barebones as of now, but I thought I'd share and get some feedback.

I've always been fascinated by this possibility.

I look forward to details.

I can't find it now, but a while ago, I saw a documentary that at least partially touched on the subject of this possibility. On Jupiter, specifically. Beings spoken off were ones with, for example, air-filled sacks that would allow them to float about in the air and not fall into the gases below. There were others, but I can't remember them now. Everything was flying, anyway.

I'd love for you to try my game out! Here's the forum thread about it:

Of an Ernst'ian one.

I read a scifi book with some aliens that were, as you say Skomakar'n, "air-filled sacks that would allow them to float about in the air and not fall into the gases below". Can't remember what book it was now.

Now that I recall, I do remember coming across it somewhere... there was a book, or website, or something, where someone hypothesized what life on other planets in the solar system might be like. I think he/she took some liberties because there were hypothesized life forms for every planet.

Anyhow, intersting stuff. Moar.

I imagine they would probably be very big since the density of air is so low. Though some scientists believe Jupiter has liquid deep inside it, and maybe even solid rock at the very center, the temperature (36000°C) and pressure (3 million times more than Earth's surface) would be too severe to support anything like what we could call life.

A couple interesting links I found about life on gas giant worlds.

Have all the cells in this world, both of single and multi-cellular life developed structures similar to the large central vacuoles in plant cells, but filled with gas instead of fluid?

And do any of the organisms (most likely larger creatures) have a way to change their buoyancy and thus not be confined to one layer of atmospheric pressure?

Lastly, are there any floating biomass islands, perhaps on which not floating/swimming creatures could evolve?

This may be one of the most intriguing conworlds Iv'e come across.

Okay, first illustration-like thingie of this world. It's a species of glider that's flying inside the cloudmoss layer.

I really like this - eagerly anticipating more development. Is it in the same star system as Suenu?

Would the most intelligent of species on your conwolrd, the Nephelai I believe you call them, have any real type of technology or tool use? I think that could pose a problem for creating such a thing as culture, with the absence of any sort of stone, wood, metal etc. And what physical shape would they have? Similar to that of the creature you posted in this thread?
