A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Well not quite.

Water has been discovered on a planet in another star system, however the orbit distance and temperature range on the surface mean that its unlikely to harbour anything more than chemicals.

Maybe ET is only chemical :)

If they can find any planet around any star I must say they are doing a great job.

Now that they can find even small planets like earth I must lift my hat for those guys.

Talk about finding a needle in a haystack :)
