Mental flotsam and musings... most likely around gaming, sci fi/fantasy, comics, or society in general. And beer. Mmmmm... beer.

Pictures taken of 4 exoplanets
What the hell is an exoplanet? It's a planet that orbits a star other than our sun. Scientists until now have just been able to detect the wobble caused by exoplanets or measure the change in a star's light when the exoplanet eclipses it. But now scientists think they have pictures, one around one star and three around another. Nothing earth-like yet. Yet.
