    And somewhere out there in the galaxy, some unknown civilization has labeled our planet an exo-Zork. Makes me giggle.

    Thanks for the link, not_Fritz!

    Articles like these have me excited about the next generation of Space Observatories. It will be wonderful when TESS and various other planned observatories come online. Such beautiful science will grace us.
