Too bad we don't have a quick way to get to some of these neighbouring planetary systems. It would be fun finding one Earth-sized.
And I sincerely hope NASA's proposed Terrestrial Planet Finder space telescope array survives the budget-pruning process and gets launched in the next decade.
What a wonderful time to be alive.
A little off topic (sorry) but correct me if I am wrong. Was a prototype spaceship not announced about a year ago (roghly) that was free-flying? In other words, it could fly whereever it wanted to without having to use a planet's gravitational field to swing on like probes and regular spaceships. Whatever happened to this. We need solar sail technology as well as photon propulsion or whatever it is called to be able to visit these planets that we discover nearby.
