Scientists spot two — or maybe three — planets in the process of being born

It’s over 400 light years away. We currently don’t have a propulsion capable of traveling at light speed or beyond at the moment, nor access to a convenient wormhole or network of same ( reference to the movie ” Contact ” ). I rather wish we had a Stargate from the movie, & / or the series ” SG1 ” or Stargate : Atlantis “. A trip with current technology would take a trip on a ship capable of supporting multiple generations or one like the ” Discovery ” or the ” Leonov ” in “2001 : A Space Odyssey “, ” 2010 : The Year We Make Contact “.
A relatively quick trip out there lies in the realm of science fiction for quite a while.

Science - fiction, fantasy, horror & suspense ( But not really " nerd / geek " material ), armchair cultural anthropologist, interested in archaeology ( Although the closest I've been to an actual dig - site was Pinson Mounds outside Memphis ), & interested in the obscure, strange or sometimes things that would bore or put off other people.
