"It's not just a number," said Jessie Christiansen, science lead for the archive and a research scientist with the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, in a statement. "Each one of them is a new world, a brand-new planet. I get excited about every one because we don't know anything about them."


Cool stuff. :D

Here's NASA's press release page which has link to a minute and a half video which includes animated diagrams of some of those exoplanet solar systems,

I was into the planets since I was eight, if not before. Back in the early Sixties. But the nine planets in our own solar system were the only ones actually know to science then and for almost all of the decades since.

Then in the mid Nineties they a found a couple planet sized objects orbiting another star for the first time. And the number steadily grew. And we got Hubble to help search (and other earthbound and orbiting inovations listed in the article) And now we have hit 5000 known planets outside our solar system (in addition to the eight in this solar system - they demoted one of the solar planets of my childhood down to a dwarf planet). Great times to be alive! ...if you ignore covid and Ukraine etc. Lol! ("It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. It was like all times" as Dickens said in a tale of two cities).

Sadly:

• None are truly "Earth-Like" in size, density, atmosphere, and hydrographics.

• None are near enough for us to visit in our lifetimes.

• None have been shown to be inhabited.

Hitchens' Razor: What can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.  If someone is going to assert something without evidence, especially an extraordinary claim that demands evidence, you can dismiss it without evidence. This is because the burden of proof is always on the one making the claim, not the other way around.

‘There are more things in heaven and earth,
Horatio Than are dreamt of in OUR philosophy’

-'Hamlet's Razor'

Of Course, It Appears 'Shakespeare' Was Mis-Quoted As the
First Printing in the 1700's Stated, 'OUR' Instead of 'YOURS';

Similar to A Most Egregious Misinterpretation of Original
Roman Greek Speaking and Writing Text for the Story of
Jesus that Originally Referred to "A Son of God" Instead

of "The Son God";
Additionally, With
The Original Greek
Meaning of "Son" Which
Means "Nature of" Which
In This Case Per Older Psalms Like 82:6 Replicates Similarly
Carl Sagan's Scientific Evidenced Claim We Are ALL "Made of Star
Stuff" Per "You are "gods"; you are all sons of the Most High" Per Psalm 82:6.

Yet Of Course, if one is
Attempting to Expand Empires,
It's Nice to Have an Only God Hero
As A Mythological Hero of 'Your' Team.

Yawn, The Scientific Method is Great For
What It Does in Limitations of Observable Phenomenon;

However, It Doesn't Even Provide the Tools to Measure Our
Human Consciousness Discretely That is A True Measure of
Each Unique Human Experience of Reality NOW, NOW, NOW;

Not Unlike
Those Who
Are Color or
Mind Blind as Such;

All Humans Observe And
Act Upon Their "Hallucinations
of Reality" They Co-Create Based
on What They "Hallucinate" Before
As Modern Neuroscience Suggests Now too...

WHICH CONFIRMS THAT EVERY HUMAN BEING
EXPERIENCES A DIFFERENT SUBJECTIVE UNiVERSE NOW;

Which Means Look Around, There Are About 8 BiLLioN

UniVerses Differently Perceived Subjectively So All Around the World Now;

It Shouldn't Take A Rocket
Scientist To Understand that
And In Fact It Likely Will Not;

As Evidenced Over and Over Again;
Just With 'Common Sense' Analyzing
The Variety of Human Experiences
of Separate UNiVeRSES For What 'They'

Have to Say About Their Existence on
Ironically A Place Called "The Wrong Planet"...

SMiLes, We All Have Our Individual UNiVeRSES to
Either Dance And Sing About, Or Sit and Talk About...

Yet Of Course That
Is Only A Metaphor,
For All Of Existence
Is a Spectrum of Chaos

And Or MaGiC Depending on
How Much of A Miracle and Gift

We or You And Or i AM Experiencing Now.

Yawn, 'We' Understand More About What's 'Up
There' As Most Folks Never Come Close to Pursuing
And Acting Upon Potentials of The Greatest Unique UNiVeRSE Within...

Without the Ability to Discretely Measure Human Conscious Awareness,

The Scientific Method Fails Miserably in Its Value to Measure What is Most Intrinsic

In Human

Experience;

Yes, Again, Our
Conscious Human
Realities As Perceived;
As Felt; As Sensed Now,
So Differently; Hehe, What

This Means is it is Up to You;

No Tool Will Do It Alone For Us...

'This' Literally Makes 'Word Salad' Out of "Hitchen's So Called Razor"...

And 'Science' too As That Applies to Discretely Measuring Each Unique
Human UNiVeRSE

Conscious; And Yes
Subconscious Reality

Too...

Yes, Of Course i Live
on 'Another Planet' Than
'You' Do; We All Do, Whether

Or Not 'We' Have the Cognitive
Empathic Cognition to Understand This/That or Not...

It's True, i Stand Next to People Who LiVE iN Literal Hell Within
On Earth Now While i Enjoy Heaven Within; The Benefit of A Long Life of

Wearing

Different
'Stars' of
Existence on Earth...

There Are RiSinG
Stars; THere Are Falling
Stars Too; Below Reflects Above too...

MOVES IN DANCE FLOWING FREE Poetry IN
SONG ARE Heads And TaLES Above What
Science Can And Will Measure Subjectively
Of Our Greatest Realities of All; Yes, Duh,
Our Frigging Realities; All OF THEM DIFFERENTLY.

TRUE, YA CAN MEASURE
THE DISTANCE BETWEEN

STARS; YET Y'ALL NEVER
BE ABLE TO GENERATE ANOTHER Shakespeare;

Or Even the Version of 'You' That Changes Constantly Now to
Now At the Level of Every SubParticle And Below And Above of

'Our' Existences Now;

And Subjectively So;

SO MUCH More
Fascinating Than
Counting Worlds,
Up There, Indeed...

For Those
Who Are
More Experienced
At Actually 'Seeing' That And THIS Now...

And Nah, i'm Not Interested in Human Beings
Traveling to Other Planets to Harm, Rape, Maim,
And Destroy Other Worlds; We Haven't Advanced

Yet Far Enough

to Even Frigging

Get Along;

Blame Words,
Blame All the Other
Tools That Separate
Us From Naked, Enough,
Whole Complete As We Return
to Even More Poetry to Figure Out How to Frigging
Get Along to Even Keep Breathing On this Planet With

Other
Creatures
Living Now too...

First Thing We Need
to Do Is stop Being
A Pandemic of
CuLTuRES

Destroying
Our Only
Home
Ever
We Will
Naturally
Be Evolved to Live On...

True, Science is Important too...

Yet Until We Have A Dance And
Song Worthy Enough to Inspire Us
to Get Along; It is Only Salad Dressing

For a 'Funeral'...

Not Even
Worthy

of 'Word Salad'...

Also Leprechauns keep NASA from finding their pots of gold.

But it does look like they may have cut a secret deal with NASA to supply all that gold NASA uses for insulating foils.
My guess they will supply NASA with gold as long as the pot locations are scrubbed from satellite imagery and sensor results.
Which then brings up the question of, I wonder how large a pot of gold it takes to cause a local microfluctuation of gravity?


Huh, I wonder what kind of TT RPG could be built around a gold war between the leprechauns and the greys ...
Hopefully it would at least have some really cool miniatures ...

So Goes the Reality of Human
iMaGiNaTioNS And CReATiViTiES;
Only Limits

We Impose

On Our Selves;

Not Creating Something

New, Never Seen Or Done Before...

Yawn, i Went to School for 19 Years,
And 3 Degrees. and 33 Years of Work,
Eventually Retiring At Higher Pay Grade
Levels for the Federal Government; Yep, i've

Seen the Limits Of Before, They Almost Bored me to Death...

Same Old
Dammed
Stories Told...

Formulas,
Equations,
AS Such too...

Nope, No More;
At Least Not for me...

Go to Space And See Some
Lifeless Rocks; Meanwhile, i Will Create
'Colors of New to Full Moons' That Bring
DeLiGHTFuL 'Frission' to Some Humans at Least...

And Dance FRiEnDS With Gravity, In More and More
Balance That Makes Blasting Off into Space More of

A Bore too...

As One May
Dance Free
And Weightless
In Balance of What
Moves Pyramid Stones
On Terrestrial Earth FOR REAL...

Perhaps, with 16,353 Miles of
Practice Doing it Fearlessly in Public

At Least; Additionally, Yes, Yes,

HEhe, And in my Case, 245 Pounds,
Light As A "Forrest Gump Feather, "Becoming the
Wind" in Balance, Reaching 62 Years Old on 6.6.2022..:)
