    I challenge you to find any species that does not exploit its environment, and move into new environments as they become available. Self-loathing isn't an answer to the problem, it's a distraction.

    Most animals take what they need....humans are wasteful and selfish...and we should know better!

    Most animals don't take what they need -- they just have been a part of a developing ecosystem for longer.

Scientists have only searched through a tiny fraction of our galaxy, and with the fast advances in technology, we can expect many more interesting discoveries in the future. But for now, check out the handy infographic below, courtesy of Space.com, displaying all known types of alien worlds.

How Habitable Zones for Alien Planets and Stars Work by Karl Tate, Infographics Artist   |   December 11, 2013

Our nearest single Sun-like star hosts five planets - one of which is in the "habitable zone" where liquid water can exist, astronomers say.
