Too bad it's 600 light years away. It'd take us like 100000 years to get there. Fucking huge ass universe always making things difficult.

lmao yeah true, but if more research is done and it is confirmed habitable that will possibly kick us in a higher gear......I am doubtful though Sad

Well, if neutrinos can travel faster than light, then maybe light speed is achievable? Or if we can figure this whole "worm-hole" thing we would be golden. I am sure HouseofCantor has some info on this, but I may be unable to digest it. Worth a shot HOC?

Is this place still a shithole run by a dumbass calvinist?

Kepler 22b is actually God's testsite B. In this version he didn't plant the talking snake but replaced it with Justin Bieber...

I do believe (could be mistaken) our closest technology to this type of space travel would most likely come in the form of nuclear power. Plasma engines are a possibility. I haven't looked into it in a while. Unfortunately too many people are scared of nuclear power and it has been sitting on the back burner for far too long.

I just hope they send some sort of probe in that direction to get more info.

I have heard of the plasma idea as well. The really cool part (if I remember it correctly) is that a field around the ship would be created that would act as a shield against radiation. Pretty sweet theory, now for the application!

All we know is that it was there 600 years ago. If it is habitable, and was inhabited by creatures like us, it may have blown itself up 599 years ago and we wouldn't know it till next year.

On the other hand, if they are still there, they can feel safe being that far away, because we just can't spread civilization among those savages and introduce them to jesus christ.

We should send them pulses of light in binary that says "Beware of the mormons...and the christians...and jewish...and the muslim...you know what? If you see us coming...just blow us up...the ships probably have bibles on them...yea...that will work out much better for you."

I read a few other news articles on this so far. Yeah i get all excited about new science news lol.

This planet was discovered in 2009, they hadn't had confirmation it was a planet until now. It had passed in front of its sun 3 times to be confirmed.
