The Kepler mission from NASA has discovered more than 3,600 possible worlds, a haul greater than any mission before it. Now researchers suggest the Gaia spacecraft, scheduled for launch on December 19, could also be a bonanza for discovering exoplanets

Great...but i believe more attention needs to be right here on earth before we destroy it to shreds.

Now, you know doggone well that if humans managed to get to another planet, they would just pollute it and kill its wildlife. It would be better to clean house (and minds) here before seeking other planets. In my humble opinion humans ought to be forever confined to this planet rather than ruining life elsewhere.

Enrico Fermi thought that the reason we have not been contacted by any of the statistically thousands of intelligent civilizations in the galaxy, was they probably destroyed themselves when they reached our level of technology. He is probably right.
