We are going to be hunted to extinction by sailors from the Galactic British Empire?

FTFA: Large planets the size of Jupiter are much less common than worlds between the size of Earth and Neptune, none of which even appear in our solar system.

So, we are a figment of our own imagination?

Yeah, not the best sentence. Had to read that a few times to figure out what they were talking about.

Time to disappear in a puff of logic.

I'm fairly certain that the Dodo bird is the Dodo bird of the universe, unless it was from some other universe I haven't heard of before.

Nah. We have Earth and we have Nepture...just nothing in between them. Which apparently is a bit of an oddity.

Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus are between Earth and Neptune.

size-wise


Earth has character array size 5 and Neptune has size 7, so Saturn is right between with size 6

We are a fluke of the universe. We have no right to be here. And whether you can hear it or not, the universe is laughing behind our backs.

There are between 100 billion and 400 billion stars in our galaxy.  We probably shouldn't draw conclusions from 800 exoplanets.  Our current methods tend to find large planets that orbit near their star which probably explains why we aren't seeing planetary systems like our own.

FTFA: Pulling from 20 years of research since the first discoveries of planets beyond our solar system using technology sensitive only to detect that planet size, one must conclude that the sample is statistically invalid...
