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.
Really. You honestly think we've been there already? Even if we could travel at the speed of light, which is about 671,000,000 miles per hour,
it would still take us 22 years to get there. Even if we could travel at 1 billion miles per hour, it would still take over 10 years.
It would be awesome if somehow, we could create a gaseous device that not only puts us into a hibernation state, but uses the respiratory system to
deliver nutrients to our bodies. Place these devices in a zero-g chamber, and all systems go!
If such a thing were possible, getting to a planet would be much simpler.
...Or, we could develop a teleportation device that would render all further flights unnecessary. Since we're on the topic of the "unlikely", might
as well mention it.
