Cannot wait for the James Webb telescope to be launched next year. So much more will be discovered. :cool:

Wow imagine if this is as stated, the possibilities etc. (although a few light years away probably)

Can we send Zuma to go there just to go and check if his policies and friends could live there?

Someone always has to bring Zuma into something completely non related :rolleyes:
@Genetic Fine, keep Zuma. Will it be ok with you if we send Mugabe? :D

If you think the Kepler space telescope did a good job, just wait for TESS. This time next year things will get interesting!

And keep in mind - all the planets discovered so far are only the ones which pass in front of the parent star (as seen from Earth). As you can imagine, there is a small chance of this happening. Most planets are not visible by this method! And even so, there are soooo many already ...
