I like how the planet orbits with the sun, in that one side is always dark, and one always sunny.  You could stage some pretty epic good vs evil fights on that planet!  It would also make a great location for a sci-fi 'Heaven and Hell is a planet separated by light' story crossed with avatar or something.

I also like how one of the scientists apparently said he was 100% sure there will be life on that planet.   TeddyR

Confident chap.  Let the genocide of the native population begin!

Kind of reminds me of a small comic I saw in our local newspaper once:

It shows 2 U.S. astronauts on Mars, one shaking hands with the local alien leader, and smiling and saying "we mean you no harm."   And in the second frame, they show 2 American Indians on horseback, one looking at the other and saying " yeah, that's what they told us..."

It drives the point home, that's for sure.

So, this planet is like earth, but it's bigger, has higher gravity and orbits a red star?

Uh, haven't we heard of a planet like this, except it exploded?

 Just for fun, let's start a drive to call this planet "Krypton", and have earth type planets orbiting red stars called "Krypton class" planets, especially if they're bigger and have higher G than earth.

Higher gravity? I don't know how I missed that in the article, but I can foresee at least half of the population sent to colonize this planet suffering from joint pain (especially in the knees) very quickly after settling in.

Another consideration, those of normal weight on Earth at 1 G would be possible two to three more times the weight on a planet with such a gravity. I believe that gravity is relative to a planet's mass (I could be wrong) and this would create a problem on a planet of this mass.

One thing that would be interesting though, is to see the long-term adaptation
and development of people natively born on the planet, as opposed to first-gen Earth imports.

What type of bodies would they develop in a higher gravity atmosphere? What would be the cardio-vascular effects?  The overall difference between native Earth folk and the ones born on and adapted to the planet is very interesting in it's potential.

And thus breeding a race of supermen, leading the name Krypton to be quite a good choice for this new planet!

Provided they bring lots of cows with them. Hey, they're gonna need lots of milk to develop bones strong enough to stand up to the higher gravity. Granted, if they came back here they'd have to work hard to keep up their strength since having lower resistance would result in weaker bones and muscles (something that astronauts have to deal with when they're in space for extended periods of time).

True. A larger mass on a planet with lower gravity would see a major weakness in the individual.  Much in the same way that bodybuilders must keep up their strength thru continual diet-exercise to maintain their mass and strength. 

Funny how atmospere and related issues effect people and things.
