  1. Good, it looks like we’re going to need it.

  2. Only problem is its gonna have a far bigger gravity, and because its star is a red dwarf, its orbit is close to the star, meaning it could be tidally locked, which would complicate things greatly.

  3. 2x the size and 8x the density isn’t habitable. Gravity would be so strong you’d break bones if you tripped and fell. These news agencies and Astronomers need to get their shit together, one thing humans are *extremely* sensitive to is gravity. If it’s off by even a little bit, ~10-20%, it starts to cause big issues.

  4. Too bad people on earth continue to squabble about East vs. West rather than look to the future. Stephen Hawking said we don’t have much time left before he died.
