a reply to: JadeStarI am disappointed by your answer, you pretend to be a scientific person and yet show such ignorace of the real facts! A distance of 3.75 AU is NO distance for an object of sun size or slightly bigger. If we had another sun orbiting at Jupiter's distance none of our planets would have close to the orbit they have today. You obviously know a little about celestial mechanics and think you know it all. If you think calculating the orbit of an object in a binary star system is easy, well, go ahead and try it yourself.
Your arguments simply don't hold water.
Can you read? Do you know the difference between 3,750 AU and 3.75 AU?

Yeah I really hope they turn every instrument they can to this new planet and try to detect the atmospheric signatures of life.

Right, life could exist and have evolved there...but the stresses on our bones/muscles/back wouldn't be healthy for most people.
I'll be more excited when we can detect signatures of oxygen, nitrogen, carbon, ect...
