Re: Habitable Exoplanet Catalog

I think they'll be experimenting on animals till they're absolutely sure of the process and then there will be a line of space cadets waiting to be tested. Of course it helps if the subjects get paid in medical experiments. People will do just about anything if the money's good.

Re: Habitable Exoplanet Catalog

I might have added any moons from this system to the list:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/47_Ursae_Majoris
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stars_a..._Ursae_Majoris

The star has a gas giant 2-3 times Jupiter mass orbiting its star about where our asteroid belt is in relation to our own sun.

The star there is also slightly brighter than our sun, and with a big gas giant reflecting light, its effective insolation distance might be that of our Mars--thus any Europa type moon will probably have some liquid water.
