In case you’ve missed the news, improvements in hunting for planets around other stars has rapidly improved and some jaw-dropping discoveries are being made. Recently, a planetary system very similar to our has been found.
This raises all sorts of interesting issues, from SETI research being able to target systems instead of just guessing to learning about how common planets and solar systems are.
Very profound stuff and hopefully will be better covered by media.
PS. Bonus points if you get the Def Leppard reference…
