The only thing I find exciting about this is the possibility that the use of this technique will (notice I say "will", not "might") discover planets
similar to Earth or Mars.
I think most of us can agree that eventually we will travel to other planets be it via government or private enterprise funded projects. The unlimited
potential in raw materials mining will drive it as will population growth and probably survival.
Those needs and raw capitalism will drive us to develop the capabilities needed. It just needs to become "worth" doing. Only the exhaustion of high
value / demand materials on Earth or an extinction threat will make the cost and effort finally worth the investment.
That's assuming we do not have all, most or at least some of those capabilities already. (My personal opinion based on Kelly's take ET home quote is
that we have far more space travel capability than the public is allowed to be aware of).
Within the next two generations we will probably look to space for new supplies of water, new materials that cannot be manufactured on Earth and will
see the first orbital factories for producing materials that require zero G.
Though it is kept very quiet in the mass media we already have public developments of gravity shielding tech that alone proves the capability for
faster than light travel is within our reach (if not already on military craft still classified).
I believe we're going to start seeing announcements like this and even more exciting versions more and more often in rapid succession. "They" are
running out of time to keep certain things secret, other countries who are not part of the "Cabal" are developing technology quickly - disclosure is
happening. While a lot of us think of Disclosure as being the final admission at the highest level of UFO / ET there are many, many secrets that will
become public as part of that and looking at this announcement combined with prior ones, the various new shiny tech toys coming online, etc one can
clearly see the progression of a slow, controlled disclosure.
Sometime in the next 12 months they will announce the detection of an "earth-like" planet (similar mass, temperature, etc) followed by the detection
of signals from such a planet indicating technologically developed life.
