Go NASA!!!! The best use of taxpayer money in the entire Federal budget. Gives the lie to the whole "big guv'mint can't do nothing right" spiel.

As Carl Sagan said… "billions and billions" of planets. I challenge anybody to explain how private business could have accomplished anything remotely close to what NASA has done. Couldn't agree more with DivineLeft comment.

The more planets they find, with the Earth being on the younger end of the spectrum, with no alien contact, the more it proves the existence of God and that we are alone. Bill G.

Good news. When we are finished ruining this planet, maybe we will have someplace else to go.

ruphina, instead of the story providing proof for the existence of god, it could be evidence that advanced civilizations tend to kill themselves off. I hope I'm wrong. We need to take care of ourselves and this planet (plummpj- sorry 7 billion people aren't going to be traveling 10 or more light-years away anytime soon).

It's not all doom and gloom that things are quiet out in the vastness of space. Someone has to be first in the advancement out of billions. Perhaps it's Earth?
