    I saw some "leaked" info, but who can trust it?

    So we wait anxiously!

    Social media is full of the usual "Aliens" etc. Even saw one claiming they found Vogon poetry! LOL

    Oh my...the intrigue of this announcement will make today a long one for us that are waiting impatiently

    "Note that all information regarding these findings is under strict embargo until 19:00 CET (15:00 BRT) on Wednesday 26 March 2014."

    I'm glad I'm retired so I can monitor this....nanosecond by nanosecond.

    Carry on luminaries....
