I am excited. The thought that scientists and astronomers may have found a truly remarkable exoplanet, is exciting enough. I have already read about
the Diamond Planet, the real life Tatioonie Planet with two suns in a four star system...Et Al. However, this discovery seems much bigger than all the
earlier ones, because:
1) "@cosmos4u: The Wednesday ESO presser "to Announce Major Exoplanet Discovery" will have one of the biggest stories in years. But my lips are
2) “@AAW_Darmstadt: Habitable planet around Alpha Centauri? Barnard's Star, even better: Eta Cas? (one of my favourites)??
Ok, will wait patiently.
3) “@planethunters: We were pretty chuffed. RT @staratlas: @megschwamb Congrats on not just discovering a new world, but such a *cool* new
Just some of the discussion that's happening out there, in the open! But No One is saying what it could be, guess we all have to be patient for
another 15 hours...
For me personally, my excitement is because I have followed so many possible habitable exoplanet discoveries...about 3130, with the last 500 coming in
just about 15 months. If they have detected a remarkable exoplanet, I sense it would be big news. Even a tiny little hint that life is possible or
already thriving in such a planet, would surly be a grand news! And we might be the generation that this news breaks in...!
As I said, I am excited. Lets wait and see what unfolds!
