NASA's Kepler mission has confirmed discovery of the first near-Earth-size planet in the “habitable zone” around a sun-like star.
The Kepler-452 system is located 1,400 light-years away in the Cygnus constellation. Which means that if ET calls home from here on Earth, it will take 1,400 years before his voice will be heard in the Kepler-452 system -- and then it will be another 1,4,00 years before ET receives a reply.
Quite a lengthy conversation.
I find it ludicrous that all the World News reporters and everyone not tied to Obama's government, refers to the Islamic State of Iran and Syria as ISIS, while the existing U.S. regime insists on being different, referring to the enemy as ISIL, the Islamic State of Iran and the Levant.
Anything to differentiate and divide.
