I think I saw a headline about it, but hadn't read anything until now.
That sounds interesting. Although, I can't imagine what kind of life would evolve on a planet that orbits it's sun so quickly that a year is only about 56 days long. That's if it has seasons. Which isn't necessarily so.
If the climate is constant, life wouldn't have to suffer dramatic changes in short periods of time.
It'd be cool if our new telescopes determined there were signs of life.

Way too long, that's for sure.
I guess they want to make sure they don't make any mistakes like they did with Hubble.
As you recall, they had to go back up and correct their error.

I agree that means we have two wait about two years.

I think the person quoted was talking about James Webb telescope and that's scheduled to launch in March of 2021.
I wish it were sooner.
