    Yes I agree, not_Fritz. I'm still trying to digest what I've read. Can it be true? This is...astonishing.

    As I read it, every step of the argument appears secure enough to carry the necessary weight. Only a few decades ago the a study like this would have been a pipe dream.

    I'd like to point Kepler at one
    Meade 12" LX90 ACF UHTC (goto) on LX200 mount
    Revelation Eyepeice kit 9 - 20mm, 2xBarlow, Meade sp 26mm
    Revelation Quartz 2" Diagonal, 30mm 2" Revelation Wide FoV EP
    Canon EOS 7D

    Once we were as close as anything could be to the entire Universe, now look how far it is.

    Because of what you'd "see" or what you'd "not see"? It still might have a gassy planet....

    Rather poor covering and cold in the winter I should imagine... just hydrogen some helium and a faint trace of heavies. The thought of that with winter coming on gives me the chills.
