Hello to new reader mllelaurel!
No longer shaking like a chihuahua, thanks.
Yoga, lunch with methanopyrus, writing and/or jewelry-making, CSI Cambridge (possibly more Science Festival stuff - depends on how I feel and how much homework Elayna has).
Robot Chicken: Star Wars
Starring George Lucas. No,I'm not kidding. Story here.
It's a floor and a table!
Geekologie wonders who this is supposed to appeal to. That would be me.
Astronomers have discovered the most Earth-like planet outside our Solar System to date, an exoplanet with a radius only 50% larger than the Earth and capable of having liquid water. Using the ESO 3.6-m telescope, a team of Swiss, French and Portuguese scientists discovered a super-Earth about 5 times the mass of the Earth that orbits a red dwarf, already known to harbour a Neptune-mass planet. The astronomers have also strong evidence for the presence of a third planet with a mass about 8 Earth masses.
