Earth 2.0

The most Earth-like exo-planet has been discovered.

NASA announced it found a planet in the “Goldilocks Zone” of a star very similar to the sun. It’s been named the uber-exciting, Kepler-452b (because it was found by the Kepler spacecraft, orbiting the star designated Kepler-452).

Scientists (and journalists) started calling the place Earth 2.0.

I get excited when stuff like this happens. The chance of finding some sort of intelligent extraterristrial life inspires the imagination. SETI immediately started listening for signals from Kepler-452 and have heard nothing, which is disappointing.

Can you foresee a time in the future when we would actually receive that transmission? What would that do to your psyche?
