Quotes about Exoplanet
Feb 22 2017Seth Shostak
Whether or not TRAPPIST-1 has inhabitants, its discovery has underlined the growing conviction that the universe is replete with real estate on which biology could both arise and flourish. If you still think the rest of the universe is sterile, you are surely singular, and probably wrong. A year on any of these worlds would be less than three weeks, and in the case of the innermost planet, only 36 hours. You'd have a hard time keeping up with birthdays.

HIRES was not specifically optimised to do this type of exoplanet detective work, but has turned out to be a workhorse instrument of the field. I am very happy to contribute to science that is fundamentally changing how we view ourselves in the universe.

Why are we trying to detect Earth-like planets around the smallest and coolest stars in the solar neighborhood? The reason is simple: systems around these tiny stars are the only places where we can detect life on an Earth-sized exoplanet with our current technology. So if we want to find life elsewhere in the Universe, this is where we should start to look.
