    Well we only found our first non solar system planet less then 20 years ago and now we have found the closest we have ever come to our own solar system.

    How exactly? This is great news for humans, maybe we can use this solar system eventually as the last escape plan from global warming.

    Uhm, it's 5000 light years away...

    Why does everyone think global warming is going to destroy the Earth (or at least making it impossible for us to live on it)?

    It is good news that our solar system isn't special.;) But

    1 Global warming is not going to destroy the earth, it will make life unpleasent for the majority and displace a large minority.

    2 It is 5000 light years away, it would take like 1million years to get there:lol: However for the future... who knows..
