What a fascinating article and shows the incredible brilliance of Einstein and his theory of relativity- to be able to use it to discover new planets! Thank you Carlene for this awesome news.

Most interesting, Carlene! A planet 25% larger than Jupiter! The 2,000 light years away factor means we probably won't be visiting anytime soon, but, however, at least we've found out that there are planets to explore and perhaps one day in the far distant future, we'll buzz on over there, Lol. Seriously, it could be that our human species could actually locate a new world out there that provides us with a place to settle. We have to gain the wisdom to handle this world better though, and that may well be the prime factor. Learning how to be better caretakers of planet earth and all its inhabitants, as well as mastering space travel, -then the amazing adventure to such awesome planets as you share with this article today! I've always admired Einstein's genius, and today you compliment his work with such an excellent article, Carlene! Thanks!
