Hi folks,

Wanna see a planet in orbit around another star? Here ya go...
The full story is available at ESA's Hubble site. Loads of exoplanets have been inferred but this is the first one to be imaged directly. Now, where can I get me one of them thar Hubble telescopes? :lol:

Bob.

I know where you can get one cheap. Needs a little repair, though. No delivery, buyer must pick up...

:lol:

What. :!: I suppose you are now going to tell me it's out of warranty and can't be repaired for another six months. :roll:
