As far as I'm concerned, this is all the evidence I need to confidently say that our existence is not unique. We are one of probably many instances of life. Time to evolve people.

Thoughts?

The "uniqueness" of our planet never factored into my belief in God.

Nevertheless, this is actually a really cool discovery when you consider that now we have a fallback planet and no longer have to worry about taking care of this one. Project Wall-E can begin.

Sorry if that's how that came off - it wasn't meant to insult.

I meant lets shift our priorities a bit and spend money things that matter.

But also, we can say with some certainty that life probably exists outside of here.
I wonder what their porn is like.

Oh, sorry, I've come to know you as the maker of religion topics. You know I've got nothing but love for you. Hell, I let you play with my kids.

I think that it's unfortunate that at this point we have so much work to eventually get around to even visiting other planets.

On a side note, Mars Rover 2. I was watching their landing sim for that. That things is a lot cooler than the reverse airbag method.

Awesome discovery towards habitable zone planets, but still no real details about this one other than its location and size. Could be a barren water-less rock or swathed in methane. Hopefully further research will tell us what it's made of and its properties.

At 600 light years away though, humans may never see it unless we find a way to crack FTL.

it's a sad day when people can't simply discuss the stars and beyond without it going south.

why bother paying attention to that which we stare up at, when we can't physically kick it in the nuts and steal its lunch money.

lets just keep looking inward, because that has done us so well to date.

Sounds like it would require some serious flexibility.

The universe currently has an approximate size of 'infinite' because we have no idea how truly big it is.

Because of this, there's a chance that there is life somewhere else in the universe identical to ours in almost every way, let alone just other 'life' or sentient life.

I love you man.



Now all we need to is master teleportation or build a renewable habitable space station that travels towards habitable planets - that people can live/procreate/and die on. I guarantee they wont be missing much here.

We find life on this planet in the WEIRDEST places and in the most unfriendly environment - I what their plankton like creatures look like?

We also find black holes 10 billion times the size of our sun. Which is pretty fucking scary.

More scary? A black hole that produced 10 sons. And I've found a few of those before too.

^ More scary? There's a black hole machine on Earth that has a 1 in 50 million chance of destroying the universe!

Sure there could be a second Earth...but for God's sake, they dont even know if it's solid, liquid or gas. But spending shedloads of money on shit like a black hole machine with other crap going on...when I would also like to add - I dont give a fuck.

Also, didn't we already do FTL and it just flew under all the major news networks radar?

Alright so it was just some tiny little shit and it was barely faster than light, but still.

FTL within 100 years so we can go check out these planets, plz.

Ill give 100 bucks and a game of your choice to the first person to figure out how to efficiently bend time and travel through a wormhole to kepler-22b

Very glad this topic was posted, as this stuff fascinates me. Kudos Urban.

There may not be life on this planet, but to find a planet so similar to ours in such a miniscule area of space just makes me that much more certain there is intelligent life out there. I say intelligent because I'm pretty much positive myself life of some form does exist somewhere.

I was pretty stoked to hear this news but any colonization or travel missions won't be happening in our life times. To travel 600 or 700 light years when we have no faster than lite travel method would take, well....A very long time.

IntoTheRain, leading the pack in research donations.

Urbz, just listened to a news story two nights ago where they were saying that it will be more likely that we develop a hibernation station than a renewable resource station. Something just turns in my stomach at the thought of jettisoning off into space knowing that you're leaving behind a society that will change vastly by the time you reach your destination and if you were even to return you'd get there years later.

^I have no problem getting into cryostasis - the only issue is in that time, our society may have developed a way to get there and would be there ready and waiting to meet us by the time we got there 600 light years later. OR that planet that we see may only be a facade - because once we get there we discover that its essentially mars. OR even we get there and all goes well but we are now the last humans in the universe because humanity has wiped each other out and destroyed ourselves. All of thes possibilities sound AWESOME!

If were lucky we'll get some superman type effect from their sun, which is kind of unlikely given the fact that it si almost identical to our sun except a bit dimmer.
