Artificial Intelligence Discovers Kepler Planet!
The use of AI to find potential habitable planets is an exciting development. Although admittedly, also another blow to the ego of the human brain.
This news potentially marks a whole new stage of space exploration. Maybe, even finding a world close enough for us to visit. The current discovery of Kepler 90i is rather long jump at 2,500 light years, a wee bit out of range for any of us. Unless, of course, we develop the Superconscious that allows us to upload our consciousness into some form of immortality.
The back story of Evolved involves a forced jump to a planet to save humanity. Old Earth was destroyed and mostly abandoned due to a corrupt political structure that ignored warning signs in the environment. (All fictitious)
