So is something else somewhere in there looking at the immensity of the universe and also contemplating their own insignificance?

Almost certainly.

Will we ever know? Almost certainly not, unfortunately.

Stupid space being big.

Yes, but there is an advanced slime mold, who is a professional zitusonus player named Shelden, on the world of Cabulatoth in the Stebupath galaxy some 84,585,048,000 light years from Earth, who has an ability to contemplate her own insignificance which places her in the 99.99999999999999999999999999999999999​99999999999999999999999969999999999975​1th percentile of the universe, so your argument is invalid.

If it is anything like the hubble deep field images, then we would see new dots of light between the old dots of light.

Should be able to image billions of exoplanets, the close ones with quite a bit of detail. I'm fuzzy on this but I read you will be able to read hieroglyphs tattooed on the balls of a hyena on Uranus!!! One of my completely unfounded predictions is the amount of water in the universe is ridiculously immense. Most of it frozen, of course. The other thing is Tabby's Star is anomalous because a leftover Dyson sphere is breaking up around the star from approximately 25,000,000 years ago.

There is no reason to hate Proxima b.

Gawd, I am so nervous for launch. This instrument is .... is ..... freaking awesome.

I just realized that if you referenced the 22nd, you know they dropped it. The 22nd is the earliest possible launch date assuming all checks pass. They've only just started the checks. Given that this is one of the most complicated things ever built and has 344 identified single-points-of-failure, I'm not putting money down on a 22nd launch.

You obviously are fuzzy on this.

Here is where you will find the formulas for angular resolution:
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angul​a​r_resolution#Specific_cases

The math is pretty simple.  Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to figure out how big of a telescope (or telescope array) you'd need to resolve continent-sized features on a planet 4.25 light years away.   You can use Australia as a model for that.

Extra credit if you use a slide rule.

They didn't drop it - a clamp-band popped that caused the telescope to vibrate.
