I bet Proxima Centauri has five small rocky planets around it and one gas giant, and Zeta Reticuli has six, including two gas giants. When is somebody going to launch a deep space probe - hi-res camera and radio, that's all we need - in that direction (Centauri System)? We have a good ion drive cooked up. Sure, it'll take a little while to get there, but we could probably start getting good data when it's only halfway there. We would probably build faster ships that would catch up with it, but we gotta start sometime. And we could pick up the older ships as we go. I'm all for it. And terraforming Venus, too, with some genetically modified bacteria that will float in the atmosphere and burn the CO2 into Nitrogen and H20. No time like the present to start!
