    No scientific value of the transit? How about verifying our ability to measure the content of a planet’s atmosphere as it passes in front of its star, which will then be used to quantify the amounts of different chemicals in atmospheres of planets round distant stars!? That’s massively important, we can potentially find life-supporting planets from the comfort of an office chair.
