The star KOI 172 is about 1040 light years from Earth. If there is intelligent life on the prospective planet, it will almost certainly be due to colonization from another star system. KOI 172 is thought to be only about 400 million years old. This is very probably too young for it to have evolved intelligent life of its own. If nothing else, it might host a geological survey settlement. Such a young world might be of unusual interest to ET scientists.

*SNIP*that is a interesting discovery and planet as well.the question is can we take care of it though?meaning are we going to learn from our mistakes and take care of the planet good or mistreat it.because in my opionion yes we could find planets to live on but if were going to pollute it and mistreat meaning digging up oil and etc and repeat the sames mistakes we are doing on earth then we havent learned anything at all as a living species

Perhaps fortunate, in at least one respect, then, that a planet 1000 light years away, or even 10, is apparently going to be beyond our reach for quite some time to come. Perhaps by the time we've learned, or been taught, how to travel the stars, we will have acquired some additional wisdom.

Whatever it takes to extend our species, in my opinion.
I guess if that is the case, but then maybe other species from other planets might be thinking the same thing. What if we arrived there the natives were not exactly friendly but decide we make good food. I am sure they will seek out the planet of our origin to conquer it themselves so THEY may extend their species. It is not all cut and dried.

Just a reminder, there's a forum for conspiracy discussion. This is the science and space forum, please stick to scientific discussion.

Interesting question, then, maybe: The galaxy is about three times as old as our little planet. Why hasn't someone else colonized us? Maybe the galaxy is a more civilized, lawful place than we realize.

Or we are not worth the effort ;)

This planet is over 1040 light years away.

The fastest spacecraft mankind has so far launched would take more than 4.7 million years to arrive there, so I think colonisation is out of the question for sometime to come.
