Canadian ‘pay-per-view’ microsatellite verifies existence of exoplanet

A briefcase-sized Canadian microsatellite has made a major contribution to mapping a promising waterworld. First spotted by NASA’s Kepler, the decade-old MOST telescope abandoned by Canada’s space agency has verified the discovery of another super-Earth.
The newly spotted planet is 2 1/2 times the size of Earth and is believed to be mostly water or ice. It was first spotted by NASA’s giant Kepler Space Telescope orbiting Earth.

Harvard University astronomers noticed that one star changed brightness, which supposed that a planet orbiting that star might have passed between the star and viewers on Earth, a movement called a transit by astronomers. However, the Harvard scientists still needed further proof, and that’s where MOST came in.

Most and perhaps all so far discovered of these other earths seem to be much larger than our planet earth which lends creedence to the mind bending theory that aliens terraformed this planet or maybe they discovered this planet already inhabitaed by dinosaurs along with a far larger percentage of oxygen within the atmosphere and then they eliminated most of those monstrous beasts while reducing those oxygen levels so this world would be more hospitable and more habitable for the existence of our prehistoric ancestors and their descendants you and i...

Another habitable planet to trash.
Humans are trashing this one and looking to exploit other Goldie lock zone planets.

We are on the threshold of space travel and pulse laser technology.
yet humanity may not survive if we become a threat since we live in duality and not singular with the cosmos of space & love conciseness.
