So it seems NASA has discovered a planet capable of sustaining life. Pretty interesting I must say:

The article you linked to doesn't mention it, but I've read elsewhere earlier today that it's around 600 lightyears away from Earth. I'm afraid you'll have to wait for Zefram Cochrane to invent Warp drive to get to your resort. =p

I wrote a message addressed to Starfleet when they discover my remains instructing them to go back in time and take me and a team of contractors and other necessary staff, to the new planet.

I just sent a subspace message to Temporal Integrity Commission on a secured channel through the temporal vortex, informing them about your intention to commit a temporal incursion with the attempt to alter the timeline by traveling to where no man has gone before ahead of time. Expect a visit from temporal agents. =p

Tholians don't need M Class planets to walk around on. =p

Sucks that this wont happen until we're dust. :(

It's good that they've found this planet though, from what I've read, it seems to indicate mostly oceanic in nature. Monean anyone? Still interesting though, however I'm sure it's more than likely that by the time we venture out in to space we'll have the ability to live on many of the planets they've already found. Even rock-based planets like Mars will become somewhat of a home to humanity some day (should we ever get there).

A single Earth-like planet orbiting a star 600 lightyears away?!

F*ck colonization, it's bloody Mondas! :Panic: I suspect that the Cybermen ships will appear here within the year! :eek:

I sent a letter in the post, I've not heard anything back yet.

Thats mad.

One hell of a discovery even if theres only a possibility it could have flowing water and life. Its a shame we are too far away to try and confirm if it could or not

Something thats getting at me: If that planet is 600 light years away does that mean we are looking at it, as it looked, 600 years ago?

From my understanding, if you got out a telescope and had the co-ordinates of that planet and then continued to look into the night sky at the planet, then yes, you would be looking at it as it was 600 years ago.

That being said though, in this instance, I'm not sure how it works. They sent up a probe, and that probe has sent information about this planet back to Earth. Unless the probe was launched in 1411 (which it wasn't) it would have taken 600 years for us to get the pictures back from the probe. Obviously there is some form of data transfer going on between the probe and the guys at NASA, which begs the question, if they can get clearer pictures of said space body via other means, why are they looking at everything with telescopes?

Because everyone at NASA are Peeping Toms and perverts. Ummm... does anyone know how to apply for a job at NASA? :naughty: :lulz:
