    Better for Life than Earth: Scientists Identify 24 Superhabitable Exoplanets

    If this is possible, how many years would it take for humans to go to these planets?

    Here at RPF, we don't promote every conspiracy theory - merely the ones we've been made aware of. If there's anything that Ron Paul followers know, it's that bad things don't just happen; bad things require dark and insidious forces acting in concert and in secret to make them happen.

    A light year is 5,879,000,000,000 miles, so a hundred of them would be 587,900,000,000,000 miles. Voyager I's velocity, relative to our sun, is currently 38,026.77 mph. So 100 light years would take it 1,546,0161,354 hours, or roughly 1,764,858 years. For reference, the oldest Homosapien fossils discovered are about 315,000 years old (provided your papers are in order or you can sneak past planetary INS). So to travel 100 light years would take you roughly six times as long as our species has been in existence. It helps to get your hands arounds numbers as large as these if you're ever going to grasp just how large our national debt is.

    That's why NASA is working on warpdrive.

    Sounds like never, but who knows. Humans have work wonders and who would have thought back then, we could go to the moon when our ancestors were probably just lookin up at it, thinking it's some kind of god.

    I've seen this movie called the Passengers. It's quite interesting. It would be great if it would be real. But then again, why are we bothering ourselves with the life somewhere else when we got a lot to fix here. Poor earth

    Wow, thanks for the response. I'm looking at the number and I feel so dumb asking the question It must be stressful doing all this calculations when you're there.

    I've watched that movie too. It's kind of like where I got the idea! I agree with you on the part where humans might be getting ahead of themselves when there's much to do here. Maybe, most of the knowledgeable people know there's only a little hope left so they're making a plan B. This world has gone crazy in so many levels, and most of us are just getting used to it.
