“Houston, we have a problem – we’ve found another Earth type planet like our very own, miles away from home!” Imagine how, those enchanting words and the sounds of discovery would sound in Mission Control, if the mission were a live manned space flight, zillions of miles from earth in the far reaches of space, near our own star – the Sun.
The solar system is full of mysteries to be discovered or waiting to be discovered in the course of one’s expenditures of the stargazing scientist or the amateur stargazer looking for his or her extraordinary discovery to fame.
There are millions and zillions of planets surrounding our solar system and beyond. But, the one’s we are not sure about, are those outside of our own galaxy – the far reaches of deep space, which could be generations and centuries into our future, that we don’t know about.
The meaning of science is the meaning of discovery for all man-kind. I would hate to see the theory destroyed beyond skepticism and into reality. But, very few never seem to know the reality could exist beyond our own beliefs. Of Course, Science Officer Spock could be right and logical of his own theories and discoveries as a Vulcan.
