Pretty cool stuff.  I always love news of "out there" discoveries.  We should have packed a while ago, but y'know.  
Maybe that's why sci-fi is a lot of fun, where "this kind of stuff" has already happened. =)

Ah well, enjoy what you will.  Obviously a lot of issues with it still.

I'd love to be the guy at NASA responsible for artist's renditions of planets we'll never see.

That dude thinks he's batting a thousand

It's be so awesome if the planet was shades of purple and pink and orange..  None of the blue and green hogwash.

Quote from: Dice
We should have packed a while ago

Quote from: Article
Kepler-22b is located 600 light-years away

Quote from: NASA
space shuttle must reach speeds of about 17,500 mph (28,000 kilometers per hour) to remain in orbit. The exact speed depends on the space shuttle's orbital altitude

Assuming that speed and our magic fuel, we would only need 201,000,000,000 23,007,827 (Corrected, I am mathing very goodly today) years to get there, better start packing!

EDIT: Oh yeah, Earth-like planets really arn't anything new, I remember hearing about one very, very close to us by comparison: the planets of the Gliese 581 are candidates for this, and they're "only" 20 light years away. Only in quotes,of course, since that'd still take us about 770,000 years to get there at current speeds.

I'm still holding out hope that they'll announce that Alpha Centauri has habitable planets someday- that would only take a couple thousand years to reach!
