"It's the Holy Grail of exoplanet research to find a planet around a star orbiting at the right distance so it's not too close where it would lose all its water and boil away, and not too far where it would all freeze," Steven Vogt, an astronomer at the University of California, Santa Cruz, told SPACE.com. "It's right smack in the habitable zone — there's no question or discussion about it. It's not on the edge, it's right in there."

I am uncertain as to whether this is simply a method by which to harvest flags and stars, or an honest mistake...

I'm thinking we've known about these planets for a while now. At least the top secret government has.
And that we've been there already in secret.
I am uncertain as to whether this is simply a method by which to harvest flags and stars, or an honest mistake...but either way, you should delete the entire thread, because this is not the first to be posted on the topic. In the future, make sure there are no recent threads pertaining to the topic, or make sure you have contributions of your own to put forth.
Otherwise, it's simply a rehash, and no one here enjoys rehashes.
Just a friendly suggestion.
