Exciting how? 1200 light years away: we'll never be able to do anything with this information.

I think it's pretty exciting myself. Even though the probability of there being planets with life on it is astronomical, it's still cool to see them find some potential life-filled, or at least hospitable planets. Maybe one day, in many, many lifetimes, we will have a way to actually explore places like this.

Physics says the possibility of humans harnessing faster than light travel or wormholes etc is so doubtful as to be a non-possibility.

If it happens at all, it won't be anytime soon. But our understanding of science and the universe is so small that anything is possible

I thought curiousity was a pretty cool mission that NASA had going. Its kind of concerning how much money is going into it though

Compared to the amount of money spent on the war, I'd rather they dump it into science

well physics can suck it. its not the boss of me. still excited. maybe there's aliens there (solar system is older than ours) that figured something out and can get to us instead of us getting to them. that'd be neat...or terrifying...both

I think it would be cooler if we couldnt reach them, but sat here and watched life develop. Unable to send them warnings or information. Only to watch them make the same mistakes we did. Painstakingly slowly. Thats the definition of comedy.

But by then these mistakes would have already happened. You'd be seeing what's happening there 1200 years ago. If they were to look at us, they'd see the Dark Ages

edit: oh youre talking about the fact that it takes 1200 years to transmit light between the two points. but that doesnt mean we cant gather information about these planets. It didnt take us 1200 years to discover them.
