Too bad they could include only three alien systems in the chart. As we discover more planets, we should see some that are more like our own. Eventually we are going to find a planet that is very close to our own home - and if we want to survive, we will colonize other planets.

Maybe there are alien eyes out there, seeking the galaxy for planets. Maybe someday they will meet us humans, and let's hope the meeting is mutually beneficial!

The universe is so vast, it is mind boggling. Why only 3 systems in the chart though?

Maybe we will one day find a mirror image of earth with human life. Oh God not another one of me.

Time is running short for us to head out and colonise the galaxy. Soon the political, energy resource, and population factors are likely to imprison us here on earth...

From the size of most of these exo-planets, earth is very puny.
