Space Ramblings

Before anyone gets too excited

supposedly found that’s earthlike. Earthlike just means that it is likely to have somewhat similar conditions to earth. It’s also likely to be as habitable for humanity as Venus. It’s twenty light years away which isn’t so bad… but in terms of actually getting there that’s centuries for any generation ship we could construct today.

granted if our society wasn’t a raving mess, the discovery of a potential earthlike planet would push rosie, larry birkhead, american idol and all the other crap off the front pages and we might even launch a generation expedition that might take centuries to get there but would be an investment in the future of the human race

after all if the sun begins going unstable, our options at this point all involve burning down our cities and screaming a lot
