Exoplanets excite me.

There is a chance that scientists have found an earth-like planet, at least in terms of temperature and such. It's considerably bigger (about the size of Jupiter), but it should be terrestrial and not gassy.

I have a not at all rational belief in the idea that one day humanity will colonize the stars, in order to accommodate all the people who keep living because we conquer death. I personally think we should get to cracking at both goals, and so this is an important step forward.
