    "NASA's Kepler space telescope has found a new planet -- the most Earth-like yet -- circling a yellow star similar to Earth's sun and 600 light-years away, according to the space agency."

    I've always said that if we are to assume we are the only living beings in the universe then we are fools indeed. Anyone else think this?

    I do not think we are the only ones, but in what shape or form or state, who knows.

    But it's exciting that we find evidence that there might be planets out there alike ours, that can sustain life. It means that in the other 99,9% of the universe - and I kinda like to believe there is more than one) there almost certainly has to be something.
