And this isn't even to find intelligent life.
    That's true, but you've got to think of the leaps in technology that we've taken just in the past 50-60 years. Interstellar travel is probably insurmountable for the foreseeable future, but I think it's within the realm of possibility to build a telescope to at least detect things like heat signatures, radio transmissions, etc., that could only be generated by intelligent life.

    Mainly I'm just thinking back to the state of technology in 1923 (when my paternal grandfather was born). We didn't even know about all the planets in our system then.

    We'll see. I think it's exciting either way.

    Nephilim Stargates: The Year 2012 and the Return of the Watchers



    2012 - A New Dawn for Earth... A New Beginning for Mankind!

    The Ascended Masters have worked with mankind throughout the centuries. Most of the time in the past the Ascended Masters have worked in the background. There were some Ascended Masters who have assisted mankind such as Sanat Kumara. also known in the Bible as the "Ancient of Days", by some He is known as the "Lord of the World".
    Sanat Kumara came ages ago to give assistance to the Earth when it would have been dissolved otherwise. He offered His own free will to supply the Light required to sustain the Earth and keep the Earth in the system until enough so mankind could be raised to a point where they could carry the responsibility of emitting sufficient Light.

    Ascended Master Saint Germain's Cosmic Name is "Freedom". He is the Cosmic Father of the people of America. Saint Germain's work for the freedom of mankind began in that civilization seventy thousand years ago; when a whole civilization could have been raised into the Ascension had they continued to give obedience instead of becoming rebellious.

    Saint Germain's most recent work with mankind came forth in the 1930's. He worked with Mr. & Mrs. Ballard to establish the focus on the "I AM" Presence. Through the Ballards, Saint Germain and other Ascended Masters gave dictation's. Some of the other Ascended Masters where, Great Divine Director, Mighty Victory, Mighty Victory and Ascended Master Jesus.

    humans won't be around long enough to see the end of the world.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    At least we can give Guantanamo Bay back to the Cubans now.

    This planet is just earth sized. Venus is also earth sized. We don't know if it can house life. I doubt the world will exist by the time the sun engulfs the planet.

    Wait a second it is an established fact that women come from Venus.

    Actually, it is 3-4 times the size of earth, with one side always facing its red dwarf sun and one side always away.

    It's in an area called the "life zone", or the Goldilocks zone for possible life forms. It is apparently the perfect size, and the perfect distance from the sun. A comparison with Venus would be flawed. From Hurriyet:

    Scientists have jumped the gun before on proclaiming that planets outside Earth's solar system were habitable only to have them turn out to be not quite so conducive to life. This one, however, is so clearly in the right zone that five outside astronomers told The Associated Press it seems to be the real thing. "This is the first one I'm truly excited about," said Penn State University's Jim Kasting. He said this planet is a "pretty prime candidate" for harboring life.
