Firstly, that's an artists impression. This is real life not the movies, you cannot just zoom in on something that far away.
Secondly, who cares? There is no chance that our human race will ever get there before we extinct ourselves.
An example from Bill Bryson;
"Pluto may be the last object marked on schoolroom charts but the solar system doesn’t end there. In fact, it isn’t even close to ending there. We won’t get to the solar system’s edge until we have passed through the Oort cloud, a vast celestial realm of drifting comets… Far from marking the outer edge of the solar system, as those schoolroom maps so cavalierly imply, Pluto is barely one 50,000th of the way. Of course we have no prospect of such a journey. Based on what we know now and can reasonably imagine, there is absolutely no prospect that any human being will ever visit the edge of our own solar system — ever. It is just too far".
Thirdly, it's no big deal that another planet fits the criteria for life. Under Drake’s equation you divide the number of stars in a selected portion of the universe by the number of stars that are likely to have planetary systems; divide that by the number of planetary systems that could theoretically support life; divide that by the number on which life, having arisen, advances to a state of intelligence; and so on. At each such division, the number shrinks colossally—yet even with the most conservative inputs the number of advanced civilizations just in the Milky Way always works out to be somewhere in the millions.

I've already been there. The aliens took me in their spaceship, probed around a bit and then brought me home.

Did you go off your meds, woberto? And, pulse, you should look into getting some meds.

Given the countless number of solar systems in the universe it is conceivable that there would be systems that could hold life far more advanced than we are and might have the possibility of stellar travel. I have always considered space as being infinite therefore I believe there would be many planets which support life as we know it and possibly even many supporting life as we are unaccustomed to possibility like silicon based life or some other. To think we are alone in the universe is just conceited and shallow thinking, or maybe religious thinking. Even thinking religiously one should consider that God in his infinite wisdom would not place all his egs in one basket.

Even if the universe is not truly infinite (and there is some evidence indicating that it might not be) it is still incomprehensibly huge. I think it is pretty arrogant to think we are the only intelligence capable life forms in existence. As far a religion goes, it is pretty damn arrogant for people to actually believe that they have even the slightest glimmer of a clue about God's "plan" and that sort of thing. I mean, who the hell do we think we are anyway?

if the universe ends, whats on the other side, its too much for the human mind to comprehend, thats why we believe in a god or creator, and what made them? so lets just try to make our short lives better by working hard and killing as many liberals, socialist, fags, niggers, nazis, communnist, bull dykes, terrorists, people who take and don't make and our little planet will be such a better place.

That's a pretty easy question to answer. There's a discussion about it because we do not know if there is or not. The probability for there to be is extremely high, yet we have no accepted evidence and experience to support it. Therefore questions about it persist and it is therefore discussed.

Also, it wasn't long ago that scientist were saying that we would never be able to travel at the speed of sound.

If you got to the end of space then you would fall off the slide onto the lab floor or you would hit the locker door.
