    111 light years.


    Will only take humans 2.2 million years to get there at our current fastest speed in space.

    Cool to discover distant life. Unfortunately we cant stop ourselves from slitting our own throats here in this planet

    Yeah, maybe we wont make it and become extinct. Planet is heading that way and becoming one big toxic garbage dump.

    I could see something like Wall-E... Which I'm sure you haven't seen because you hate children. Basic plot line is a giant ship is built that is self-sufficient. Water, the ability to grow plants, etc... Load up the 10,000 people or whatever it would hold, and start the journey. Generations would be born and die on the ship on the way to the planet.

    Still only feasable if they come up with a faster propulsion system than we currently are aware of... But all that stuff is already being worked on so it's not a huge stretch to think there will be major advancements by the time this sort of thing is necessary. Hell, Mars could be colonized by then.

    Even if it could support life it could be just like Earth but in the wrong point in time. For all we know the human/animal evolution could be at the early stages, dinosaurs could be walking around. We all imagine a planet with super technology, even if we could send a message to them over radio waves or something it could fall on deaf ears because they might not even have electricity yet.
    It’s nice to think of, and I’d love to discover another species or planet with life out there, I’d love to see why god didn’t mention that in the Bible. How would they explain that one? But I don’t think I’ll see it in my lifetime, and like previous poster said, it’s so fucking far away it doesn’t matter

    Ironic part is... If we DID develop the tech to make it there, the probability would be VERY high that we would basically be the equivalent of the Aliens from Independence Day. The bad guys.

    Best thing for that planet would be that humans never get there.

    Physics and science are really still in their infancy and we are still trying to figure out things like gravity, nuclear fusion and dark matter. I predict that we will see huge advances in propulsion and space travel in the next 100 years. Sending out a manned mission to another star won’t be science fiction.

    BS. By the time we figure out to get that far we would have figured a way to dump our shit on one of the trillions of planets just ripe for accepting our load. Then that planet can spawn its own garbage people.
