Hey scientists, I get it. It’s pretty exciting when you find a (roughly) Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star for the first time. But when you make claims like “the chances for life on this planet are 100 percent” before we have any data about the atmosphere or the presence of water or anything like that, you come off as rather silly. It seems especially silly now that it’s being questioned whether Gleise 581G even really exists; that’s gotta bring the odds of life there down to at least 95%.
Also OMG it’s a new comic for the first time like forever yaaaaay!
