Joking aside, I think we're in more trouble then they are letting on. We, being planet Earth. It seems like space exploration is more agressive than it used to be, and it's moved from the "Gee whiz, isn't this cool!" phase, to a more practical exploration.
Maybe they are searching for natural resources and stuff we can use for fuel, energy resources, but the are also searching for habitable plantes or fresh water sources, arable land, and stuff like that.
I'm guessing the global warming is accelerating and a time will come where we have to leave here or we will be unable tosustain ourselves here without new sources of energy and the basc stuff that supports life.
Of course it could also be that the multi-national corporations who rule the world are looking for profitable new energy sources, like for example if Exxon discovers oil on Mars.
It's also curious to me that they are announcing the discovery of these new planets that seem to be close to sustaining an earth-like habitation. I find it curious because you know they had to know about these planets for several years, maybe even a few decades, and they're just now announcing it?

If they have found definitive evidence of previous life on Mars (my guess, or hope at least), it's interesting to ponder:
1. What would the discovery mean for the religious nuts and creationists? I mean if life "evolved" on another planet and then died out, did God "fail" on Mars?
2. What will it mean for global warming fears? Mars after all, may stand as a living testament to fact the life can be exterminated by changing climates.
3. What will it mean for the notion there may be other intelligent life in the universe? If life - no matter how primitive - could evolve on two planets in our tiny solar system, it may be much more common than previously thought.
