NASA discovers a Habitable Planet

http://news.yahoo.com/nasa-telescope...162005358.html

Awesome! This probably means there's just possibly life out there.

Now all we need is FTL travel and artificial gravity.

That neutrino discovery a few weeks (maybe months) ago may be the first step to FTL travel.

Before all of that... where is my replacement for the Space Shuttle and my Moon Base? It'll take steps to get to FTL and Offworld colonisation and we're not getting very far with those

Your moon base was called the Alan Parsons Project right? Giant Lazor?

Note that it's a planet in the habitable zone of its star and not necessarily a habitable planet. Still, very cool.

Imagine the horror if NASA lands there and the first thing they hear is "Yousa humans? MEESA PLEASED TO MEET YOUSA! OIOIOI!"

I bet Obama would send a nuke.

Ugh, you Dutch with your Heineken. It's probably the reason we still haven't found any signs of life on Mars.

OT: I guess we've heard this kind of news a few times already, but it still is exciting! Cool-cool-cool!

Ok, if you believe the world will end then is it ok to ban you as of Dec 22, 2012?

I seriously doubt the world is going to end in a year. Now, not that I want to start a debate on it here as this isn't the place, but keep in mind that if you believe in the Bible, lots of things still need to happen before the world ends and I doubt it could all happen in a year. Again, I don't want to debate that here, just letting you know if you believe in the Bible, read Revelation. That's all I wanted to say on it.

The only way I'm not going to be here in 2013 is if something happens to me personally.

Heck I'll take a ship like Serenity. Might take a bit, but I'll get there.

Helpful! 
Instead of a new thread I'll just post here since it's relevant.

How does this affect me in any way? Sure it's cool, but I feel like money, time, and great minds are being wasted here.

Just watch out for any nuclear detonations that blow the moon out of orbit and you'll be fine.
