Someone once said, "Its an awful waste of space if earth is the only inhabited planet in the whole of space."

Well, I guess the space program really needs to get to work on tracking down Kirk, Spock and the gang to start exploring these strange new worlds.

Some perspective.

The Voyager 1 space probe is the fastest man made object, it travels at 17.3km/second. Kepler 22b is 587 light years away from Earth. A light year is 9,460,730,472,580 km distance. It would take the Voyager 1 traveling at 17.3km/s 9,509,400 years to reach Kepler 22b. I just crunched these numbers on my IPAD so it is official..... 17km/s is roughly 16,200 years per light year. 73,000 years to the nearest star which is 4.5 light years away.

That gives you guys plenty of time to practice up on your scotty impressions and alien pimp game.

That's because Jocks are clever buggers and invent most things.
