Grief sucks: An encore performance

The planet hunters found an earth-like exoplanet orbiting the star 40 Eridani A, which is written into some of the original Star Trek novels (Suck it, J. J. Abrams) as the star orbited by the planet Vulcan. And after posting the link several places, I realized that I can’t come home and tell Dad, who I watched the show with first, nearly 50 years ago.

Looking for life out there

We have a cloud of artificial satellites, paint chips, nuts, bolts, wrenches and other junk orbiting our planet. Astrophysicists are looking in what is called the “Goldilocks Zone” for planets with water-dependent life. So I was watching this video put out by the American Museum of Natural History and I was thinking that maybe the key to finding life out there is to refine our search to planets in the “Goldilocks Zone” with lots of gadgets and stuff swirling around them.
