    Here is some interesting information about the known/unknown universe. It requires careful reading.
    Dr Natalie Batalha, Kepler mission scientist at Nasa’s Ames Research Center in California, said, “If you ask yourself where is the next habitable planet likely to be, it’s within about 11 light-years, which is very close.” (Unfortunately, as stated, “Kepler-186f resides in the Kepler-186 system, about 500 light-years from Earth in the constellation Cygnus.” How long will it take man to invent a vehicle that could travel at half the speed of light?)

    Dr Batalha said the new finds Kepler 1638b and Kepler-1229b were intriguing targets in the search for habitable planets.

    The Nasa Ames researcher said the Kepler mission was part of a “larger strategic goal of finding evidence of life beyond Earth: knowing whether we’re alone or not, to know... how life manifests itself in the galaxy and what is the diversity”.

    She added: “Being able to look up to a point of light and being able to say: ‘That star has a living world orbiting it.’ I think that’s very profound and answers questions about why we’re here.”

    We know of just one planet where life exists -- Earth. When we search for life outside our solar system we focus on finding planets with characteristics that mimic that of Earth,” said Elisa Quintana, research scientist at the SETI Institute at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif., and lead author of the paper published today in the journal Science.

    Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades,
    Or loose the cords of Orion
    ?
    Can you lead forth a constellation in its season,
    And guide the Bear with her satellites
    ?
    Do you know the ordinances of the heavens,
    Or fix their rule over the earth
    ?
    ( Job 38:32-33 NASB )

    First; read all of Job 38. Then;
    See the amazing creation of Jehovah God and his Son Jesus.
