Once we find it, we should organize ourselves into colonization groups.

Into the A ship will go all the leaders, scientists and other high achievers. The C ship will contain all the people who make things and do things, and the B ark will go everyone else, such as hairdressers and telephone sanitizers.

Then we'll send off the B ark first...

Are you so bored and cynical you can't get excited over the unlikely possibilities of a vast and infinite universe?

I don't see how you can know you're close to discovering another Earth.  Wouldn't that kind of imply you know roughly where it is?  Or are they expanding the definition of "another Earth" so anything they find somewhat near the Goldilocks zone with a surface gravity between .2 and 5 G qualifies?

Or is this just a bullshiat sciency story written by a junior reporter who knows nothing about science aimed at readers who know nothing about science so we can all feel optimistic about a Star Trek utopia being just a few weeks away.
