    Pretty awesome. If only it was more Earth sized, and not 6 times the size of Jupiter.

    (As a side note, if Jupiter was 12 times bigger it would've ignited as a star.... so if this one was 6 times larger would it have created a binary system here?)

    Tempy it shall be named, Shazam!

    In all seriousness this is actually quite exciting it's going to be amazing to see what the people in 500 years will see compared to what we are seeing now.

    From what I've read in several space magazines and tv documentaries, it's possible that every Galaxy has it's own 'Earth' look-a-like, Earth is livable for us because of it's distance to the sun, and the athmosferic conditions, not to mention the oxygen levels... Although I love my planet Earth, I doubt we'll stay here for much lunger... Unless we manage to save Earth and restore it it's bound to be destroyed by us humans, when that happens we'll have no choice but to evacuate (I'm pretty sure most of you have read or seen examples of what will happen to Earth unless we manage to restore it), well, space exploration is going for a while now, but maybe one day we'll be somewhat closer to what the sci-fi movies despict. xP

    Actually, I've never watched 2012, maybe I should once we reach 2012. xP
    But it is true that our planet is being killed by us, not in a couple years of course, but in couple hundred or maybe a thousand, I dunno... The icebergs have already started melting tho, just that is bad enough... And with sci-fi movies I was talking of the sort of think like star trek and similar. xP

    With much longer I mean a few more centuries or milliniums. z.z
    I believe in what National Geographic says. xP
