Something you don't see in the TV News in the United States- too much coverage to reality show twits and other mindless celebrities.
Two actually important news:

Exoplanets are my personal interest. :D

*Egghead mode on :shock:

This planet is really intriguing: Gliese581d (http://www.hellofromearth.net/gliese581d/aboutgliese581d/index.htm), because it is thought to be placed in the habitable zone, where liquid water may exist. The Gliese 581 system is interesting altogether, and it's only 20 light years away from Earth ;)

Makes me want to re-read my Ray Bradbury stories. The Strawberry Window is one of my favorites. It's about a family who is part of a colony on an inhabitable, not-so-distant planet.
