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 :)

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...
