Great. And now we really have no excuse for not visiting the planning office.

On the other hand, an exoplanet we could reach with a probe in my lifetime is one hell of a birthday present!

Exoplanet Found in Nearest Star System to Earth
European astronomers have discovered a planet with about the mass of the Earth orbiting a star in the Alpha Centauri system — the nearest to Earth. It is also the lightest exoplanet ever discovered around a star like the Sun. The planet was detected using the HARPS instrument on the 3.6-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile. The results will appear online in the journal Nature on 17 October 2012.
The Aliens may not be too far.
