Fox news reports the AP story: Earth-Like Planet Discovered Orbiting Nearby Star. This of course has all sorts of scientific, religious, and fascinating implications if proven true. I wonder how they could prove such a thing in our time?

I guess traveling there would be one way, although they say that: "Distance is another problem. We don't know how to get to those places in a human lifetime,". Yet if they did, I might be willing to go. Of course I have a family, so that would make me probably just dream about it, but if I had no family ties (wife and kids, I am not talking about anyone else) I would jump at the opportunity. Hopefully there would be somehow to come back if it was not a planet that supported life; but man oh man, what a long strange trip it would be!

All the best,
