The thing of it is...

At the rate these discoveries are being made for exo-planets, and Earth-like planets, and habitable zone earth-like planets, and closest Earth-like planets...

I feel like we'd finally send off an interstellar ship or probe on a 100 year journey to an exo-planet and six months later


We just found the first Class M exo-planet eight light years in the other direction.
What's more likely to happen is if we sent a probe or ship on a 100 year journey to reach the Earth like planet, when they get there they realize the team we sent 50 years later with better technology beat them there.
