I like them odds.
…NASA scientists announced that they have spotted seven Earth-sized planets orbiting closely around a small, ultra-cool star. The star is 39 light years away.
It is the first time that so many Earth-sized planets have been found in orbit around the same star, an unexpected haul that suggests the Milky Way may be teeming with worlds that, in size and firmness underfoot at least, resemble our own rocky home.

“The star is so small and cold that the seven planets are temperate, which means that they could have some liquid water and maybe life, by extension, on the surface,” said Michael Gillon, an astrophysicist at the University of Liege in Belgium.
So, we just need to travel 3,627,000,000 miles (5,850,000,000 kilometers) to pay them a visit.
Pack well, relevant traveler.
