^ that was what I was gonna say... it's only 47 light years away...

At least we may be able to see it really well with that new space telescope and see if it does in fact look like it could have life.

More than 7 times more massive equals more gravity which means objects weight more. Any life there would be a bunch of Hercules'..maybe we should just stay in our own neighborhood. :phew:

And just think, at .5c it would only take us 94 years to get there.

Now if we can just find a way to transport 160 people and supplies at .5c we would be ready for the mother of all road trips.

So there is a Super Earth out there and I am stuck on regular Earth.

This is so typical of my life.
