The significance of discovering newly formed planets allows us a look into the past and for the first time gives us a way to better postulate how our own world and the neighboring ones came to be. The possibility of terrestrial Earth like planets within the habitable zones of stars such as Gliese and Trappist – 1 offer us a bounty of possibilities on what our future understanding of the universe will be. At the moment we believe our world is completely unique due to the presence of life, oxygen, and liquid surface water. While many are now starting to infer that some form of life most likely existed or may still exist on Mars we have no directly observed this but in the next two decades when we most likely do it will pull back what we thought we knew about life in the solar system, how it forms, and the conditions that it can exist in. When this happens it will open up other worlds now discovered or soon to be that could fit into classifications that weren’t previously available to us and help answer if anyone or anything as smart as us or more advanced is out there.
The significance of discovering new solar systems is primarily in the ability to observe events which previously we could only speculate on. Given that there are objects in our own solar system whose existence can still only be proven via mathematical modeling, it is fairly evident that we still have many questions, and blind spots in our understanding of the universe. As science attempts to understand the origins of our solar system and as such unlock its secrets, observing new systems being formed, or finding new systems where we expect we would and in line with our predictions, serves to validate our current understanding as well as further it.
By witnessing the creation of a new star system, we can better understand the means by which ours was formed and why it formed the way it did. By witnessing dust collecting over years, spinning around a center and eventually collapsing into itself, we understand the means by which a star forms as well as that the matter outside the star gathers and creates planetary bodies. By witnessing these bodies and how they are affected by the new solar nebula or eventual star and its energy, we understand why our solar system is laid out in the manner it is, with dense rocky formation planets closest to the sun and gaseous ones further away from the solar energy where they can survive.
I doubt our solar system itselff is unique to the universe only in that it seems logical that the same material would react the same way when the same pressures were applied to it, hence there are likely plenty of solar systems just like our own. This is not to say the are not those wildly different such as those with more than one solar body, or those of massively larger solar bodies for instance. The only thing that comes to mind making our solar system unique is our existence. The size of our star, at the correct point in its life cycle, allowing for life to exist and evolve into sentience is remarkable and statistically unlikely elsewhere.
