    We'll see. Last time NASA did something like this, it was also hyped to high heaven. Then when it was finally revealed, the reaction was "eh... neat."

    I feel like anything short of aliens is not going to impress anyone. When we didn't know anything about space, it seemed interesting. Then, we went up there, and found out so much tedious trivia that it's overwhelming for any normal person to pay attention to. The biggest discovery we've found in space is that it's irrelevant. We found out that there's nothing out there for us to do, and even if we found something there's no way it could ever make a difference to our way of life. Look! This planet has water! Oh, but it would take 18 billion lightyears to get there. HOLY SHIT, this planet has similar weather patterns to earth!! But the air is made of acid that dissolves organic life. Space definitely seemed way more interesting to me before I ever took an astronomy course.

    Me neither. Just as Xaios said, I'll probably smile and say "...cool!"

    Contact with an intelligent alien civilization is the only impressive option for me. I'm sure their discovery is based on a much much smaller scale.

    That website has multiple grammatical errors. So, the believability level for me has been lowered a bit.

    While you may not be going to visit alien planets in person, don't overlook the fact that many technological breakthroughs that we take for granted in every day life have come about through our space exploration efforts. Technologies like: anti-icing technology for aircraft, water filters, insoles in your shoes, etc.
