From my point of view, only hubris, arrogance, denial, and lack of scientific understanding of the utter vastness of this universe, are the things that can and will lead to such a conclusion. 

 

What have some of our most brilliant minds said about this possibility?

 

Hawkings: The well-known scientist also became more speculative about the existence of aliens in the universe, too. He thought it's probable that other life forms exist and compared a possible alien visit to Earth to Columbus trip to the Americas. Extraterrestrials likely have more advanced technology and the potential need to conquer the planet for power or resources, which would lead humans to potentially be wiped out from war or disease. Therefore we should not try to communicate with aliens.

In short? We're too self-obsessed to even imagine extraterrestrial life, let alone find and communicate with it, and if there's not going to be proof within our lifetimes, we're not much interested in looking. Is there intelligent life out there? Probably, but we'll probably never find it.

Kepler’s answer was unequivocal. There are more planets than there are stars, and at least a quarter are Earth-size planets in their star’s so-called habitable zone, where conditions are neither too hot nor too cold for life. With a minimum of 100 billion stars in the Milky Way, that means there are at least 25 billion places where life could conceivably take hold in our galaxy alone—and our galaxy is one among trillions.

1. Try that with flat earth society. 

2. The scientology church will love this.

A great find, whether we can access the water or not. It's work like this which will help find paths to other discoveries in the future. Another feather in the cap of UCL. Bravo.

As some of you may know ,i started a thread about ,if you believe in God ir not,now to those who do ,he must have been awfully busy making all these billions of planets ,not to mention any alien species,wonder if he sent any of his other sons to die for them .
I am not having a go believe me ,but just think about it.

That means light need 100 years to travel to there. Anything else is slower than light.

 

So what would it mean if this planet would be perfect, just like earth, maybe with no pollution at all and maybe with millions of beautiful young women waiting for the men from earth? It would still be impossible for any of us to go there. We would never every arrive before we die.

So it's all very interesting theoretically but useless for the real world.

Yes, but it'll keep NASA financed.

I enjoyed the original Startrek series episode where god appears as Charlton Heston (out of the 10 Commandment movie). God addresses threw leaders by saying he was appearing in a form he thought the Earthlings could understand ...

Going into space is stupid ego trip. We should be cleaning and restoring the oceans and building habitable cities on and below the seas.

water?  water????????????

it's Co2 that accounts for all of our food.  100% of it.
and all of life!  except thermophiles?  

and even why water is water.  or it ain't.  so Co2 is the king of life.  


but hey, we can't see Co2.  at all.  but water we can see! 

and Co2 only has a chemistry class name.  well, maybe there's the Creator of the Universe.  can't see him.  and he accounts for all of life.  is Co2?

and..... Co2 may also account for WHY we left the trees 7 to 8 mya [Oliver Morton's plant food book, not the geo-eng. one.  around or exactly on page 287 of the paperback version].  with or without eating an apple or another banana [when we left the trees because of a change in the atmospheric concentration of Co2 that resulted in a change in the kinds of grasses and number of trees available to live in].
 

so who cares about water?  is it "plant food"?  NOPE!  that's also Co2.

 

it might even be how our stupid little story ends as well as how it began.

Not if we find them first.
