    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Evidence of water has been detected for the first time in a planet outside our solar system, an astronomer said on Tuesday, a tantalizing find for scientists eager to know whether life exists beyond Earth.

    Think it's a pretty nifty find. Will be happy when they are able to find
    smaller planets then they have been.

    It won't be all that long. A couple space telescopes are getting close to ready for launch...and these guys will be able to find the little rocky planets that we can't really see right now.

    I hope I'm alive when we find a fascimilie to Earth. We won't be able to go there, but it'll be cool - and maybe it'll stimulate space exploration. They think they'll be able to find hundreds of small rocky planets in the first 5 years.
