    Sounds interesting...

    ...but i wouldn't get my hopes up too much. Cautiously hoping something cool will be revealed.

    sounds interesting indeed. definitely the one question I want science to answer before I die is if life exists elsewhere.

    I heard last week that a planet (a super earth) was discovered in the 4th closest system to earth- Gliese 411. If it's just a rehash of that i'll be a bit disappointed.

    So it's seven Earth sized planets that could have water and life...but at 235 trillion miles away, so what? We will never know and sure as Hell will never go.

    How long would it take at a million miles an hour?
