Researchers claim 100% certainty that life exists on newly found planet

http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/09/ ... nomer-say/

Not very scientific science if you ask me. Sounds more like informed opinion, and as such terms like 100% certainty don't fit. Can I see the formula behind that 100%, and the assumptions behind it? Yeah, doesn't exist, I know. I just wish science reporting was more scientific and less headline/grant money targeted.

"The chances of life on this planet are 100 percent." Same guy: "I have almost no doubt about it."

Does he not know what 100% means? That's not ALMOST no doubt.

So, who's going to volunteer for the mission to fly there? Shouldn't take too long, right?

Well, isn't it the premise of Battlestar Galactica that Earth has to be abandoned, and so everyone's on a long space trip to colonize a new planet? I could be way off, but regardless, in that scenario a trip that took generations would still be worth making.

Technically, the plot is that a planet has to be abandoned and the people who leave that planet come to colonize a planet that we now know as earth.

Battlestar Galactica was a documentary.

FELDERCARB!

But, yes, when the scientists here create robots that want to kill us all (redundant, since all robots want to kill humans (except Wall-E)), those same scientists can build us giant spaceships for our hundreds of years of space travel to a planet where we can actually survive on a tiny strip of land between the "constantly light" side and the "constantly dark" side.
