@Vector ... Re: Even if we could get there, somehow

"we'd just have to wave to them from orbit."

...while they laughed at how fragile we are...

Uhm... you do realize that if life existed at that amount of gravity, they would be much denser and squat.

If anything they would probably be more akin to an alligator than a human and more aquatic since the buoyancy would help.

Of course because of the heavy gravity... one could imagine the land based creatures would have a much shorter lifespan.
