    Default Lets begin the colonization!

    They just recently found a new inhabitable planet. I think we all know what that means.
    It's time to party we can pollute twice as much. Earths only got to survive a few decades until we develop some near light speed travel. Mother Earth's cruel monopoly on our livelihoods to survive is soon over, now we can finally destroy it completely!
    Or something, anyway if you hadn't seen this its pretty cool. If you had theres some interesting new stuff in the article.

    Not to mention, they're only speculating that it's habitable. Since they haven't directly studied it, it's only speculation. Theres factors they don't know of that might make it inhospitable.

    We obviously need to improve the speed at which we can travel...drastically.

    Interesting, though.

    I heard only little animals could live there because of the gravity.

    They say its gravity is 1.6 times that of earth... I dunno about small animals but itd be akin to walking underwater i guess.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    I say we shouldn't even touch that planet. We already messed this one up why destroy another world.
