mirozSo sick, but so far away.
ck0belskiActually, 1,400 light years isn't that far away, if you compare it to other significant exoplanets / stars
CamembertIts pretty warm there so probably no snow :(
ianrich511One, this is awesome. Two, how do we expect to travel to these places? If a light year is the distance covered at the speed of light in a year(roughly 6 trillion miles) even at the speed of light(which as far as I know the technology to transport humans this fast doesn't exist, but for fun lets just assume we can) it will take 1400 years. Since humans live to be about 75, but reproduction is only possible up to about 45, we would have to send enough people to reproduce for ~31 generations to reach this planet. Maybe I am just thinking to much into it.
